11/11/17 - 15:00 Kick Off
Another superb game from the Peregrines today as they played their first leg in the Intercup between the New Forest Girls football league and the Winchester & District Girls Football league.
The weather was not on our side but this didnt dampen the girls spirits.
The team worked well throughout the match with quite a few substitutions being made to keep them all warm whilst playing in the cold and wet.
Every player was on form today with six out of the ten players getting on the score sheet, including Olivia's first of the season and what a superb goal it was too.
Girl of the game as voted for by the parents went to the whole team as they all played so well and the opposition voted for Daisy.
Great game girls, keep up the great work and effort.
The U14's suffered a narrow defeat, losing 3-2 to a good AFC Hiltingbury Harriers side.
Fawley started quite brightly but then found themselves behind after 6 minutes when a slip in defence allowed the Hiltingbury forward to get clear in front of goal and he finished smartly giving Marcus no chance of saving it.
Marcus then pulled of a good save, knocking a good headed effort onto the bar and over, but AFC were soon 2-0 up when the Fawley players were slow to respond to a ball into the box was not cleared properly.
That sparked Fawley into life though. A goal kick from Marcus went straight through to Kyran who finished extremely well, taking the ball very early and surprising the Hiltingbury keeper.
A quick throw from Jack G to Logan then set up Kyran again who scored again to level the game at 2-2 after 27 minutes.
But we were only level for about a minute, as Hiltingbury took the lead again after a big cross was headed at the far post.
The 2nd half was a very tight affair, with Fawley putting Hiltingbury under a lot of pressure, with several good opportunities created, but Fawley were unable to take any. Hiltingbury were themselves still looking to score, and Oli, who had taken over goal keeper duties for the 2nd half, having to be very brave at times, even taking a bit of a kick to the head, but being a goalkeeper he shrugged it off and carried on.
Fawley never really got into their passing game today, on a small, tight pitch.
The game finished 3-2 to AFC Hiltingbury Harriers.
Another great result from the Peregrines with an exciting end to end game. Ringwood never gave in, showing strength and determination throughout. The peregrines played a strong game and worked well with their passing. Fern played first half in goal and made a couple of beautiful saves. An exciting game and well played by all...
Well done team.
Girl of the game, as voted for by the parents went to Sophie our new signing, who played an excellent game throughout, she looks like she will become a real asset to the team.
Another Great performance from the girls, with a couple of extremely nail biting moments and some superb play from both sides.
Sway were playing to defend their first place position in the league with the Peregrines hoping to knock them off of their top spot with only one point difference in the league.
The match was a proper end to end game.
Half time: Fawley 1 - Sway 2
A couple of wonder goals coming from both sides during the match, Roisin knocked one in from just passed the half way line.
Fawley came back to life in the second half and showed everyone how well the can play. Great tackles, great passing and superb teamwork from all the girls.
Full time: Fawley 5 - Sway 5
Girl of the game went to Beth for courage in goal and some excellent saves, even one with the back of her head after bouncing off of the cross bar.
I am proud of everyone of you going out and giving it your all, well done team.
After a few games out with a knee injury, Logan returned to the team today with a 'Player Of The Week' performance, with some excellent play down the Fawley right. Logan was involved in a number of good passing exchanges, and aggressive runs, and our opponents were struggling to keep him quiet.
Fawley took the lead after just 75 seconds when a ball from Logan set Kyran free who finished the chance well, but the lead didn't last long and the visitors were level after just 3 minutes. However Logan again supplied another opportunity for Kyran, who again took the chance, chipping the keeper, to restore our lead on 5 mins. Harrison then let fly from well outside the box with a cracking shot which gave the keeper no chance, and increased our lead to 3-1 with 19 minutes gone. After 28 minutes Testlands were back in the game with a rather fortunate goal which just alluded Marcus in the Fawley goal. Testlands were trying hard to get back into the game again, and Marcus was called upon to make a couple of good saves, but our 2 goal advantage was restored after 34 minutes when a cracking ball from Alfie set Logan free to score a very well deserved goal, giving us a 4-2 half time lead.
The second half only saw 1 goal scored, this came after 41 minutes when Kyran followed up a great effort from James which had been well saved by the keeper. Fawley pretty much dominated the second half and Oli, who had taken over goal keeper duties had very little to do. Fawley created a host of other chances in the 2nd half but the Testlands keeper was having a blinder and made a number of saves to keep his side in the game.
Overall Fawley played well today, if at times a little narrow. The defence had to deal with a couple of very quick, tricky players and they did this very well. Our full backs pushed on well, adding another attacking dimension to the team. The midfield worked tirelessly against some good players, and against possibly the tallest player they are going to face this season. And up front our attackers chased everything, never giving our opponents defence a chance to rest.
FT Fawley Falcons 5 - 2 Testlands Reds
Although not the strongest performance from the team it was a match they thoroughly enjoyed.
The Peregrines had to play their own way today due to the FA's Silent Weekend, all managers and parents were not allowed to communicate with the team during play. Both manager and coaches tried desperately to stay quiet and managed it.
With our new signing Millie joining the team they went out and gave it their all. Due to the silent weekend and with only one substitute, we made good use of the substitutes and turned them into mini managers. This gave complete control to the players and allowed them to see what it is like to take charge of their team and help guide each other through the match.
The positives that came out of the silent weekend were that the girls enjoyed playing their game their way without having to listen to us telling them what we'd like them to do.
Girl of the game was voted for by the team as they had complete control of their game today. This was given to Millie, then followed up by Pace who also voted the same way.
