A busy weekend of action for the Community Sports Trust saw all four girls teams in action, along with the women’s development squad.
The under-12 girls picked up silverware in the Hampshire Girls Youth Football League Cup final, with a terrific 6-0 win against Mudeford Girls.
The Cherries took the lead early, with both Scarlett and Isla seeing their efforts hit the back of the net. A third was scored just before half-time as Charley also got her name on the scoresheet.
The second half saw just as many goals as the first for the young Bournemouth side, as Scarlett scored her second, before Phoebe M. also struck.
A cool finish from Charley secured the win, as she netted into the bottom corner.
Here’s a look at how the other teams got on...
In League Cup final action, the under-11 girls faced their counterparts from Fareham. A challenging game ended 1-1, as Niamh scored an impressive goal toward the end of the match to take the game to penalties.
In what was a first for many of our young players, the penalty shootout was won by Fareham.
The under-14 girls hosted MFA Academy at Ringwood Town in an even affair.
There were very few chances from either side, with the only goal of the game coming from the visitors just after half-time when a cross fell to the back post and their player slotted in.
Travelling to Kent to play XL Academy, the under-16 girls returned to Junior Premier League action at the weekend.
The Cherries found themselves trailing within the opening five minutes, as XL Academy found the back of the net, but it was soon cancelled out thanks to Hannah F., who slotted the ball home just five minutes later.
The second half was much the same as the first, with few chances for either side. XL Academy were the first to strike, before Talulla, who was playing up from the under-14s, levelled it up late on and securing a point.
Women’s development squad
In the build-up to their Subsidiary Plate final, the women’s development squad hosted Poole Town last weekend.
Rosie Eden and Terri Harvey had the best of the first half efforts, with the Dolphins goalkeeper forced into making some fantastic saves, but the game remained level at the break.
Two quick goals in the opening 11 minutes of the second half saw the Cherries take control.
Eden, racing down the left wing, cut inside at the by-line and produced and excellent low cross for Harvey to convert.
Only a minute later, Harvey provided the ball for Ayuma Asira to get her goal.
The home side continued to push for more and their third was added through a superb curling free-kick from Rhiannon Short from the edge of the box.
With the game approaching the final stages, Poole pulled two goals back to make the end of the game a cagey affair, but the home side managed the game well and ran out 3-2 winners.
