Cambridge City 5 : 2 Kettering Town

Cambridge City bounced back from last weeks league defeat to book their place in the next round of the FA Cup after a superb second half performance at home to Kettering Town.

City found themselves two goals down early on and were finding it difficult to get a foothold in the game. However, the home team were thrown a lifeline when Lauren Tomlinson hit a sweet left foot half volley from all of 40 yards that the keeper could only parry into the roof of the net. Going in 2-1 down at the break, the home side were a little fortunate the deficit wasn't greater but they were a different team in the second half with a totally dominant display throughout.

City's equaliser came after a strong run and calm finish from Stacey Fullicks early in the second half. With the rain pouring down, playing conditions were not easy but the Lilywhites adapted much better than the visitors with some excellent passing and good movement, creating a host of chances. City finally took the lead when substitute Sarah Mosley collected the ball just outside the penalty area and fired a shot into the top corner giving the Kettering keeper no chance. The floodgates that had threatened to open did so and it was soon raining goals with Charlotte Gillies, who had been a threat all game, racing clear and slotting home to make it four and Emily Reed bagged herself a deserved goal when chipping in for City's fifth and final goal.

A fully deserved victory and great to see a spirited fightback and great determination having been two goals down early on.

The Ladies will now face Ipswich Town Ladies at home on Sunday 8th October in the next round.


Ladies Development Squad

Park Ladies 0 : 5 Cambridge City

The City Development side travelled north to Wimblington on Sunday for the opening game of their S-Tech Women's Premiership campaign. The squad included 6 of last seasons under 16 team.

The visitors started a little slowly and a little bit nervy, but after creating a few chances, Mo Want was on target to open the scoring and it was that single goal which took City into the interval with the advantage.

In the second half City were more composed and played some lovely, flowing football from back to front and the chances kept on coming. Erin Fox got a couple of goals in this second period and these were added to by Rachel Pearce and Molly White. City ran out comfortable winners, due in the main, to a very pleasing second half display.

Under 17s

Melbourn Dynamos 0 : 6 Cambridge City

For the second successive Saturday, the girls hit half a dozen, this time away at Melbourn. On a small pitch, City started well and it only took 8 minutes before Katie Crook opened the scoring and stabbed home a loose ball in the box following a corner. The midfield was very crowded and it took a while before both teams saw the benefit of playing out wide. By the interval, the Lilywhites had secured a four nil advantage thanks to a first half hat trick from player of the match Katie Stancombe. A good solid display from the defence and a brace from winger Yas Crow in the second period wrapped up a good team performance. Early days, but the signs are looking very promising.

Under 15s

City U15 Girls prepare to take on Isleham

Cambridge City 7 : 0 Isleham

After an unlucky and slightly disappointing start to the season, City under 15s responded in the best way possible with a brilliant team performance to earn them a deserved first win of the season.

City were on the front foot from the start and it was quite clear that every player was up for this fixture. High pressure, lots of energy, strong challenges, a range of passing and a loud start meant that it was just a matter of time before City took one of their chances. Amie Fullwood, who is making the step up from the younger age group, opened the scoring within the first 10 minutes, which triggered the start of a flurry of goals. Issy Bryant, girl of the game for the second week running, got the second with Freya Standing adding the third. Both goals came from organised and confident defending which allowed the team to attack with numbers, creativity and freedom. Bryant got her second of the game by converting a penalty and secured her first hat trick for the club before half time.

The second half was much the same even with substitutions made. Issy Bryant, Aino Turunen and Cerys Want continued to cause problems when attacking, which inevitably led to two further goals, one a piece from Turunen and Want, to complete the scoring for the game.

It was a convincing win but more importantly it was a great overall team performance with every individual player performing well and for each other. City were very strong defensively, the clean sheet was fully deserved and ultimately all their strong performances allowed the forward players to attack with pace and numbers. The midfield players worked extremely hard winning the big challenges and continuously won the first and second ball allowing the team to get the ball down and play some great football which created plenty of opportunities in front of goal. Five different goal scorers shows the quality and depth this team has to offer.

It was a pleasure to watch this fixture and all the City under 15 girls can be very proud of their individual and team performances.

Cambs City Team: Sally Phelps, Katie Prior, Rose Hastings, Jessica Davenport, Freya Goddard, Cerys Want, Freya Standing, Issy Bryant, Amie Fullwood, Jess Utting, Ella Moghadas (C), Jess Douglas, Ceri Flye and Aino Turunen.

Under 13s(B)

Bourne Town 0 : 0 Cambridge

A nervous start to the game by both teams, each producing goal line clearances. Bushra attacking and unlucky not to prod the ball over the line on two occasions. Midway through the first half Maddy found space and whipped a vicious shot, stinging the keepers hands. The home team continued to pile on the pressure but Rosie and Lauren stood firm in the middle making important interceptions from a number of passes crosses and corners.

In the second half the home team came out fighting again and piled on the pressure again but the City defenders Ellie, Ellie- May, Sarah captain Hollie made crucial tackles to keep them in the game.

Evie gave everything she had on the wing, winning every ball she could. Defending and attacking, the game was end to end with the home team pulling off some more top quality shots. Emma up front tried to frustrate a good home side defence, but she was unfortunate not to get the ball over the line. An entertaining game, City's girl of the match, goalkeeper Iris pulled off a number of crucial saves to gain City a valuable away point.

Under 12s

Cambridge City 0 : 1 ICA (Peterborough)

Following our opening day win, Saturday saw our 1st home game of the season against ICA, 23-0 winners themselves the previous week.

Two changes from last week saw Millie Fairbrass make her City debut in defence & Emily White returned up front, whilst a few of the other girls got off their sick beds to play.

This tense affair had spells of good passing football from both sides as they battled hard against each other. Half chances went begging for both teams without really troubling either keeper and it remained goalless at half time.

The same pattern followed in the second half and the longer the game went on the more you felt either one mistake or one moment of magic would turn the game. Unfortunately for City it was the former, a rushed clearance followed by a touch of indecisiveness left the door open for ICA to score.

City upped their efforts in the final 10 minutes, during which they had probably their best 2 chances to score in the whole game but unfortunately the ICA keeper stayed strong to keep us at bay.

A good hard fought game played by both teams, in which we did more than enough to have come away with something. The disappointment of a tight 1-0 nil defeat to a very strong team shows how far this team has come in a year.
