Manager log – Sunday 16th March 2014
Hackney women travelled to the depths of Surrey to face Knaphill this Sunday, it was ok though as the sun was shining and we had a full squad! Hackney played a particularly attacking game throughout the match and had ample chances even within the first 20 minutes. Just inside of the first half Em Fitzgerald finally beat Knaphill’s strong offside trap, and put a strong finish on a good through ball from Kate Meehan. At half time the score line was 1-0, not least a result of some calm passing and control from Precious and Kate controlling the centre mid.
In the second half the team built on this lead. Ms Heidi Holmes and Tash managed to push on successfully as full backs giving us much needed width going forward. Our second goal came through some nice link up play which Ceri managed to finish. Alice after a sterling performance in defence went in goal and in her words, ‘had to actually make some saves’, whilst Viv worked hard to ensure that we were covered at the back. The final goal came from some good play between the wingers including Bex and Dodge to help put Ceri in for her second goal. Unfortunately we conceded one at the end of the game from a well-taken free kick.
A great result which we hope to build on next week.
MOTM was Em Fitzgerald
