This week saw both our Under 15’s and 16’s games called off and no match for GMFC Cobham which meant that our Ladies side were the only GMFC representatives in action this weekend when they took on Putney Vale FC.
The girls put out a very strong 11 and played some excellent football in the early stages of the game against the tough tackling Putney Vale.
Despite the dominance and numerous goal mouth scrambles Putney kept managing to just about clear the ball away from the goal line, then against the run of play we were caught on the break with the Putney Vale striker finishing clinically.
The half finished 0-1 to the visitors.
The second half followed suit with our girls really taking the initiative and playing some lovely passing football around Putney.
10 mins into the half we managed to get our goal with Hannah being taken down on the edge of the area with a cynical challenge from their centre half. She then stepped up to take a fantastic free kick which could only be parried into the path of Bedhead ladies debutant Clare who made no mistake about her finish.
As the game continued the ladies pushed and pushed for the win but to no avail. Again the ball broke down from the edge of the Putney box and they broke quickly getting the ball into the wide area for the ball to get swiftly whipped into the box and the Putney striker nipped in and poked the ball in the back of the net in what was one of the last few kicks of the game!
The game ended 1-2 which did not do our girls justice as they not only fought hard but also played some fantastic football and kept knocking on the door till the last kick.
