Billericay 2 : 1 Cambridge City

As expected, this top of the table clash proved to be an entertaining affair with some quality football on display. For the second week running, the weather had forced a change of venue, once again a 3G pitch saving the day. The game started pretty even with both sides respectful of their opposition. City gradually grew into the game and deservedly took the lead following a penetrating run from Stacey Fullicks who found a spot low and left of the home keeper. Soon after, City had their in form keeper to thank for keeping them in front when she pulled off a super save and tipped the ball over the bar having watched it dip sharply from a long range shot. City retained their lead at the interval.

The second half remained a tight affair with both teams playing some attractive, competitive football. City nearly doubled their lead when striker Bella Simmons's shot hit the base of the post and rolled across the goal line before it was cleared. If this attempt had gone in, then the result would probably have gone City's way. However, the visitors had to pay the price when Billericay took advantage of two opportunities that arose at the back. It transpired that these two strikes were to be enough to give the home side all three points.
Although it was disappointing for City to come home without any share of the points, there are still likely to be many twists and turns before the end of the season.

Cambridge City 10 : 0 Saffron Walden (PSG) (Cup)

Semi-final League Cup game for City Girls who look to progress to the final again this year. On a full size pitch with 10 v 10 and a 1-3-1-3-1-1 formation, the City Girls were up for the challenge.

PSG started the better team, pushing back the defence quite early on , with Ella Compton, Milly Struthers and Yara Ghidini having to make some important blocks. A quick pass from Ella from the back to Kayleigh Peters out wide put Maddie McInnes through and within minutes City were 1-0 up. Katie Levitt produced some smooth footwork and her speed of pace left the PSG players behind crossing to Amie Fullwood to put home City’s second, 2-0. Jess Fitzpatrick created space away from the PSG midfield and Maddie managed to put home City’s third, 3 -0. PSG continued to try and attack and Millie had to defend well to thwart this. Niamh Davies, playing against her old team, took control in the midfield and her passage of play with Millie Clarke and Yael Benyamin meant that Amie was in the right place to put home City’s fourth, 4-0. PSG didn’t give up and tested Rachel Barker in goal from a counter break but she wasn’t letting anything in.

Half Time 4 - 0

A team talk at half time must have worked as City came out fighting, Amie and Katie making transitional play down the wing and Amie striking home, 5 -0.
A resultant corner from some more superb pushing resulted in Yael heading home Citys sixth, 6-0. It was all one way from this point and City’s movement and fluidity of passing between Katie, Amie and Maddie meant that they were unstoppable and Maddie calmly put home the seventh, 7-0. PSG were resolute and tried to create chances but again the back three were too strong and kept them at bay. Yael and Katie were unplayable down the wing and Yael’s pass across goal to Amie resulted in City’s eighth, 8-0. With Niamh and Jess talking to each other and passing in the midfield, PSG couldn’t get hold of the ball and Jess was unlucky not to score from a superb shot from just outside the box. A cross from Katie after another impressive switch of play meant that Yael was able to score again, 9-0. City were far too strong and their speed was too much for the PSG girls resulting in Maddie scoring her fourth and City's tenth, 10 - 0. It could have been more but the PSG goalie should take full credit for some excellent work keeping the City girls out.

An impressive cup run for the City girls again this year with such top class finishing to put them in the final. Thank you to the PSG girls and management for a great game of football and their praise for the way City played.

The well deserved player of the match award went to Katie Levitt.

Under 13s(A)

Histon Hornets 0 : 15 Cambridge City (League)

The short trip to Histon proved very worthwhile for the City Girls who were just too strong for the home side. Seven girls were lucky enough to get on the score sheet, including a double hat-trick for Ruby Austin. This win further cements their position at the top of the league.

Under 13s(B)

Cambridge City 0 : 1 Cottenham United (League)

In a very close game, City were unfortunate to be on the wrong end of a one nil result, with visitors Cottenham going home with all three points.

The Triumphant U11 Squad

March Town Athletic 0 : 6 Cambridge City (Cup)

City under 11 Girls continued their run of away games on Saturday when they made the trip to March Town Athletic. This wasn't just any game, it was the Cup Quarter Final and with it being the first year for a cup for this age group, everyone was raring to go and were certainly 'up' for the match. With only seven players available for 7v7, it was always going to be a big ask of the girls to perform for the whole 50 minutes. Despite this, the girls took the game in their stride, scoring after just 23 seconds (through Lucy). Biz and Jess were a solid unit at the back and provided the opportunity for the players further forward to attack. A hat-trick from Phoebe and goals from Poppy T and Bel, along with some delightful passing and assisting from Issy secured City a 6-0 away win to March and progression to the Cup Semi-Final where they will be playing Plantation & Spartak Girls of Saffron Walden on the 24th February. This was a great performance from the girls. Not just the result, but the way they played. Great moral in the camp too.
