George Walker Memorial Trophy 2012 - Girls Under 12's

George Walker Memorial Trophy 2012

Under 12's Girls North Managers Report

 

On Friday 11th May, the girls u12 squads were pitted against each other in the George Walker Cup at Clarence Pitch. For both teams, this was their first experience of 11-a-side football on a full size pitch and all involved were most impressed with their use of space and fitness levels!

First blood went to the South, who scored through Kate Chamberlain after she latched onto a loose back-pass to slot the ball into the back of the net. This caused the North to up their competitive spirit, and they fought back brilliantly to equalise through Rose Noden, who confidently won a 50/50 with the South goalkeeper. On the stroke of half-time, North defender Romy Kelleher launced an inch-perfect cross into the box for Lauren Pearson to slot home from close range and take the lead for the North.


The second half was an excellent battle, particularly in midfield, with both sides pressing the ball well and using the wings to good effect. Enjoying a strong display was Lauren Pearson, who once again found herself on the scoresheet following a wonderful run and pass from speedy winger Shauna Smith, which put the North 3-1 in the lead. Emily Schofield then undertook one of her legendary mazy runs from the left to score goal number four for the North. With only moments remaining, Pearson got her first hat-trick for the club with a fantastic strike across the South goal to secure a 5-1 win for the North.

Upon the final whistle, North's captain Mary Leach proudly lifted the shield, whilst the South's Shamica Powell was awarded Player of the Match. All players then enjoyed receiving a medal presented by Geoff Shreeves to commemorate a wonderful evening of football at St Albans City FC, one which will surely stay with them for years to come.

Souths Managers Report

The South came out of the blocks like a greyhound out of the traps immediately putting the far more experienced North team great under pressure. This paid off with an early goal from Kate Chamberlain who forced the North Team into making a mistake before slotting the ball home to make the score 0-1. The gamed ebbed and flowed for much of the first half without either team being able to dominate. Both teams looked dangerous on the break but were unable to capitalise on some good chances. Eventually the North side began to get on top and as pressure built they got their deserved equaliser.  With 7 seconds left in the half the North got the ball in the back of the net again  to lead 2-1.

The second half started with The South having to soak up a lot of early pressure with Izzy Tag making some great saves in goal. The South were now having to fight for their lives but fight for the lives they did. Without the advantage of having any substitutes available South were beginning to tire on the massive Clarence Park pitch. Eventually the North took advantage of this to score a further 3 goals in the last 10 minutes to run out 5-1 winners. Player of the Match was Shamica Powell who had an excellent game for South in midfield. It was a fantastic match played in the right spirt with the girls giving 100% effort. Well played to all. Looking forward to next year’s George Walker Trophy and another excellent game. Report by Robin Durrant, STACY South U12 Manager
