Girls teams back in action after second lockdown


AFC Bournemouth AFC Bournemouth

The under-14, under-16 and Development Squad were all in weekend action following the second Government lockdown coming to an end.

Take a look at how they got on below…

Under 14 

The under-14s hosted Yeovil, with the early part of the game being dominated by the Cherries, as Aimee C delivered some fantastic crosses into the opposition box.

The first goal was netted within the opening 20 minutes, as a clearance fell to the feet of Holly who unleashed a shot into the top corner from distance.

Shortly after, a ball down the line from Isobel found Zara, whose initial shot was saved by the away ‘keeper before she finished the rebound to extend the lead to 2-0.

The Cherries dominated proceedings throughout the second half, ensuring their advantage would not be tainted whilst consolidating the clean sheet.

With chances few and far between for both sides, the Cherries ensured all 3 points remained in Bournemouth.

Under 16

The under-16 girls hosted top-of-the-table Tottenham Hotspur at Canford School last weekend.

The game started with a good tempo and quality from both teams, with the first goal of the game coming from Lucy, who finished into the bottom corner.

However, Spurs responded well with two quick goals and had the lead at the break.  

After the interval, the visitors began stronger, dominating possession in the first 15 minutes and creating numerous chances, which Cherries shot-stopper Orlaith was equal to.  

Despite creating a number of chances, the Cherries were unable to convert, and in the final five minutes Spurs increased their lead with some well-taken goals to win the game 5-1.

Development Squad

The Development Team faced the long journey to Abby Rangers for their first game following the second lockdown.

The Cherries started brightly and played some excellent football in the early stages, with great combination play down the right-hand side.

It wasn’t long before Rosie Nicklen took two touches from 20 yards and fired high into the roof of the opposition net to give the visitors the lead.

The excellent football continued and just ten minutes later it was Grace Morgan shooting from outside the box, this time finding the corner to make it 2-0.

The hosts responded well and, ten minutes before half-time, they pulled a goal back. A ball down the right released their striker through on goal and, despite her low shot being parried by Mollie Joyce, the rebound fell to an onrushing player who converted well.

In the second half, one moment of quality from Grace Batsford, piercing the defence with a sumptuous through-ball in the 70th minute, set up Lucy Coalter to convert a one-on-one for her first senior goal and the final goal of the game.
