Successful weekend for girls and women


AFC Bournemouth AFC Bournemouth

Three out of four scheduled games took place last weekend, with just the under-12s’ trip to the Isle of Wight in the Hampshire Cup being cancelled.

Under 10

Some early possession for the Cherries saw the two strikers combine to create an early chance, which was well-saved by the Pompey goalkeeper.

Following some great play through the AFC Bournemouth midfield, chances were created and the girls took them well. 

Another pleasing performance saw Ruby, Krystal, Jazmine, Lucy, Chloe and Zuzanna all get on the score sheet.

Under 14

AFC Bournemouth under-14 girls hosted Worthys in the next round of the Hampshire Cup in a game which showed their dominance and fantastic goal-scoring ability.

The Cherries were quick off the mark, with Yasmin scoring in the second minute, which was quickly followed by goals from Amiee L and Amiee C to further extend the lead.

Before the half came to end, the girls were able to create and finish a further five chances which were scored by Talulla, Georgia and Aimee C.

The second half continued in much the same fashion, with the Cherries scoring further goals. India got her first of the season as the centre-back netted from a spot-kick, before goals were added by Alice, Talulla, Georgia and Holly.

The under-14s progressed into the next round of the competition in excellent fashion.

Under 16

Playing in their first county cup fixture, the under-16 girls entertained Clanfield Youth FC, winning 7-0.

In the early stages of the game, the Cherries restricted the Clanfield advances on goal with some superb defending from the back three and Mollie in goal, before creating their own chances which Mia and Be-Be converted at the other end.

Following the half time break, the Cherries played with better tempo and quality, as they looked to further increase their lead.

Following a great ball from Millie, Be-Be tucked away her brace, only to finish her hattrick six minutes later, as she went on an excellent solo run past the onrushing Clanfield defenders.

The goals continued to come for the Cherries, as Lucy and Hannah H both scored, along with Be-Be once again, who netted her fourth of the game.  

Development Squad

Going into the game off the back of two straight defeats, the Women’s Development Squad were looking to collect all three points from Sunday’s visitors Abbey Rangers.

The home side started the game brightly and dominated the early stages, which was rewarded as Helen Corbin scored on the 18th minute, as she applied the finishing touch within the penalty area following a great pass from Daria Jesionowska.

The home side continued to press forward and despite their best efforts they were unable to add to their tally, and at half time went in 1-0 up.

A disappointing start to the second half saw the Cherries concede twice in the opening 90 seconds.

Although working hard to get back into the game, only six minutes later Abbey Rangers scored again, this time with a thunderous shot over the top of Grace Reynolds in the AFC Bournemouth goal.

The game was all but over when Abbey Rangers added their fourth goal of the game with 15 minutes left on the clock.

Larissa White did add a second for Bournemouth in the 80th minute but this only served to provide false hope as the away side continued their unbeaten form and closed out the game.
