Matlock 3rds 1 v Rolls Royce 1sts 2 05/10/13

Away to a strong Rolls Royce side, Matlock knew they would be in for a hard fought match. With only five regular 3rd team players, the side called on the 4th team to help out, which they ably did.

Matlock started the game well with some attacking runs from Becca Knowles down the right side, with support from Becky Doxey. Matlock pressured the Rolls Royce defence and had many opportunities to score in the first 20 minutes. Royces then started to attack more and the experienced defence of Bridget Gould, Anne Young and Nic Camfield, supported by up and coming younger players, Jenny Brown and Anna Jackson, held the opposition at bay. By half time the score was 0-0, thanks once again to some great keeping by Amanda Jaques.

Matlock held firm in the second half until Royces scored two breakaway goals. Not letting their heads go down, Matlock pushed forward with strong midfield play from Chloe Farmer, Jo Boam and new girl, Sarah Harlington. Matlock’s goal came as Farmer dribbled the ball into Royces D passing it across the goal and deflected in by Becca Knowles.

This was a good performance against an experienced opposition and with Matlock’s developing younger players, there is promise for the future. Next week the 3rd team play away to Burton.
