Cambridge City 4 : 1 Ipswich Wanderers

Cambridge City Ladies had to come from a goal down against Ipswich Wanderers after falling behind to an early strike, which came about after they gave away possession deep in their own half. Despite having a lot of the ball, the hosts struggled to make many clear cut chances and were unable to threaten the Ipswich goal on many occasions during the first half. Their best chance came when City were awarded a penalty after Bella Simmons was brought down but Bronte Rapley failed to convert.

A much improved second half performance from the Lilywhites followed after the break and it was only a matter of time before the Ipswich defence was to be breached. The goal that got City back on level terms was a great effort from Simmons who hammered home a loose ball from the edge of the box. Another goal from Simmons was followed up with efforts from Rachel Pearce and Sarah Mosley to make sure of the win and it keeps City sitting top of the league with several games in hand.


Cambridge City Development 6 : 0 Milton

City had not forgotten that it was Milton who had scored in the dying seconds of the reverse fixture in October and thus snatched a point to earn a 2-2 draw. This time, the home side were determined to impose their game on the visitors straight from the start and not allow the game to go to the final wire. The Lilywhites started very brightly and any nerves could have been eased considerably if they had converted a lovely opportunity which arose within the first five minutes. However, it was not to be and they had to wait until midway through the first period for Carla Penny to break the deadlock with a low strike which went under the diving Milton keeper. This was nothing more than City deserved, with the home side now very much controlling the game. City had to be content though with the single goal advantage at half time, but things were to step up a gear in the second period. Goals from Erin Fox (x2) Anna Wilson, Tegan Wyman and another for Penny meant that the Development side ran out comfortable, deserved winners. It was also pleasing to see that the side had three girls from the under 16 squad too. All of them; Erin Fox, Lucy Hurst and Amelia Luxford gave an excellent account of themselves

Under 15s

Yaxley 0 : 9 Cambridge City

For the second consecutive Saturday, City under 15 Girls travelled to In2itive Park to take on Yaxley. Last week it was a cup match, this week three points were at stake.

Due to injuries and unavailability Freya Standing and Annabel Cuthbert stepped up from the under 14 squad to help out the older girls. Also donning a City shirt for the first time was debutant Jessie-Mae Daniel who recently signed for the league leaders. All three players were to make a massive impact on the game.

Playing 11- a- side on quite a small pitch meant a fair amount of congestion and at times there was a feeling we were witnessing a 'pin ball' display. However, this did not detract from the fact that the visiting side played some very attractive football and attacked with pace and creativeness, especially when they chose to use the flanks. By half time City already had a good grip on the game and went into the break three nil up, though there had been numerous other attempts that 'got away'.

The second half produced another half a dozen goals for the visitors and equally important their defence looked their usual robust outfit. Yaxley kept going right to the end and played their part in an entertaining match. The final score was 9-0 to City with the goals shared between Annabel Cuthbert x 5, Ceri Flye x 2, Katie Crook and Freya Standing. The Player of the Match award went to Annabel Cuthbert.

Under 13s

Cambridge City 8 : 0 Histon

City entertained Histon for the final time this year and ran out comfortable winners. It was spirited resistance from Histon, but City turned in their most impressive display this year. Tiana Walker, looked very dangerous in her best performance of the season and led the way with a fine hat-trick. Captain and goal machine Amie Fullwood scored a brace, with one of her strikes, a goal of the season contender; a bullet header form a corner which rocketed into the top corner. In addition, a brace from Yael Benyamin, who was also in good form and a tap in from ever reliable, Kayleigh Peters, completed the scoring.

A good display from the girls who look forward to taking on Gunthorpe in the cup semi final this coming Saturday. Player of the match was Tiana Walker

Under 12s

Cambourne Black 0 : 12 Cambridge City

City under 12s ran out comfortable winners against Cambourne Black with a 12-0 win. Lauren Greaves led the way in her first game as a striker, scoring four goals. Bella Ely added a quick fire hat-trick before taking over in goal. Emma Jepsen and captain Maddie Shanks both added a brace each and Temwani Mhango completed the scoring. Despite the defeat, Cambourne never gave up and continued to play with a smile on their faces. We wish Cambourne Black well for the rest of the season.

Player of the match was awarded to Lauren Greaves

Under 11s

Netherton v Cambridge City (Whites)

The long trip north to Peterborough was billed as the meeting of the two undefeated teams coming together. The Whites have been playing some exceptional football this season and were very confident going into this encounter. And rightly so, returning home handsome winners having easily reached double figures, though uncharacteristically their defence was breached on one occasion. Both teams deserve a pat on the back for showing their parents what they can do. Well done girls.
