Squeaky Bum time for the City supporters

AFC Dunstable 0 : 2 Cambridge City
(ERWFL - League Cup Semi-Final)

Cambridge City Ladies continued their fantastic run in the Eastern Region Women’s League Cup, knocking out Premier Division AFC Dunstable 2-0 to reach the final, thanks to goals from Bella Simmons and Bronte Rapley. After a shaky start in the opening exchanges, during which the City keeper had to make a vital save at her near post, the visitors settled down and went on to enjoy what proved to be a well contested match between two very committed and hardworking teams. The match ebbed and flowed but it was City who got the all important breakthrough when Simmons reacted first to poke home a loose ball from close range to notch her 21st goal of the season. The lead was nearly doubled just before half time when Philippa Witherspoon’s long ball down City’s right put Charlotte Gillies through on goal but her shot was pushed away and Witherspoon was unable to get to the rebound.

The second half saw City keep the home side at bay for most of the time, although a couple of corners had to be defended well by the visitors. As Dunstable pushed forward looking for the equaliser, the Lilywhites always looked dangerous on the counter attack. The game was wrapped up shortly before full time when Rapley stepped up to smash home a free kick from at least 25 yards that went in off the underside of the bar, much to the delight of all City players and supporters alike.

City now look forward to facing another Premier League opponent, Haringey Borough, in the final on Sunday 14th May. Venue TBC


Development Squad - League Champions

Cambridge City Development 5 : 0 Cambridge Rangers

A convincing win for the Development side on Sunday saw them secure the S-Tech Championship South League title at the first time of asking. And they have done it in style too. Although the team still have one league game left, they have so far picked up maximum points in all their matches, with the exception of one draw early on in the season. A delighted manager, Simon Crow, said "The side have done extremely well. It shows what talent the club has, with many players in the Development team knocking at the door of the first team".

Under 16s

Cambridge City 6 : 2 Netherton United

City entertained Peterborough team Netherton on Saturday morning and with the three points gained, took a major stride towards the under 16 league title. The visitors looked a better side than their league position suggested but with goal machine Megan Tonks in fine form and hitting five, their was only going to be one winner. Lizzie Wray was on hand to get the other City goal. The Player of the Match award went to Megan Tonks.

Under 15s

Cambridge City 11 : 0 Haverhill Rovers

By securing three points against a spirited Haverhill team, City reached an amazing milestone on Saturday by scoring their 100th league goal this season without yet conceding any at all. Playing on an immaculate pitch at Trinity College, the home side quickly took control of the game and were soon finding the back of the net. By half time they had already notched up seven goals and were very much worthy of their healthy advantage. A slight change in formation for the second half brought about another four goals. It was a good display of attractive football. Those getting their name on the score sheet were: Ceri Flye x 4, Annabel Cuthbert x 4, Sofia Castiglione x 2 and Katie Stancombe. The Player of the Match award was shared between Annabel Cuthbert and Grace Muffett.

Under 13s

Cambridge City 9 : 0 Gunthorpe Harriers

Gunthorpe travelled to Cambridge with 9 players and no subs, but even so they never gave up and gave City a tough test. City have not given up hope of winning the league with Yaxley still to visit Cambridge and a number of difficult games still to overcome. In bright sunshine and on a good pitch, it was Gunthorpe who looked the most dangerous, with makeshift keeper Tiana Walker called upon to make a couple of saves. It was City captain Amie Fullwood who broke the deadlock with a good finish after a probing run on the left wing and she went on to score a hat-trick. Further goals followed in the second half with Gunthorpe tiring and City passing the ball better. Katie Levitt added a brace and Jessica Wood, Milly Clarke and Nimah Davies all scored one each. Usual City goalkeeper Rachel Barker also got in on the act when she went in goal in the second half, and with a kick from her hands the ball flew over the advancing Gunthorpe keeper into the net. Rachel was named Player of the Match for her unusual and unexpected goal. The final score was City 9-0 Gunthorpe

Under 12s

Newmarket Town 0 : 4 Cambridge City

City travelled to Newmarket for a game which they knew would be very tough. Newmarket have had some good results of late and have some excellent players. The match was played on the new astro surface at Newmarket Town FC, although the game kicked off very late due to a head injury in the previous game. The game didn't disappoint, with both teams vying to take the lead. It was 5 minutes from the end of the first half that City broke the deadlock, when Jessie Fitzpatrick crossed from the left which caused the Newmarket keeper problems and despite making a valiant effort she only managed to divert the ball into her own net. The second half was also closely contested and as Newmarket pushed forward for an equalizer, a few gaps appeared at the back, which allowed City captain Maddie Shanks some space and she wrapped up a quick fire hat-trick in the last 15 mins to make the final scoreline Newmarket 0-4 City. Player of the Match was Maddie Shanks.

Under 10s

Cambridge City v Coton Cosmos

Although the score cannot be shown, all I can say is that this was an amazing game of football for everyone concerned. Both teams put on a fantastic display of football for their age group with great goals and movement from both teams. I think all the supporters needed a sit down after the game to get their breath back. Well done to both sides.
