The Round-Up

Sunday 12th May

Beds & Herts Women’s League Cup

The final day of the season in the Beds & Herts Women’s Football League the league itself done and dusted across the 3 divisions all that remained was Finals Day, The Chris Renshaw Cup followed by the League Cup Final itself. 

 In reverse order we shall begin with the League Cup Final. St Albans Ladies winning the competition last season to complete a league and cup double were defending the trophy against Hemel Hempstead Town Ladies who themselves were hoping to do the double having won the Division One title in their first season in the league. Object acheived as Hemel Hempstead ran out 3-1 winners to lift the trophy. Asked the club to supply a few words regarding the game and below is a brief summary of the game from club secretary Lionel Davey

 “Sunday saw the Ladies play in the the league cup final against local rivals St Albans. At a Sunny Kempston the ladies were led out by Captain Steph Cripps and escorted by 14 excited mascots from the girls U8 and U10 sides.
The ladies started well with good moving and passing Which resulted in Amy Bentall breaking through and slotting home to put the ladies one up after 10 mins. The ladies continued to dominate possession and a charged down clearance by top scorer Natasha McConville saw her coolly round the keeper to put the ladies 2 up on the half hour. This seemed to trigger St Albans Ladies in to life and they started getting more ball. A defensive slip by the ladies gave St Albans Georgia Knight some space which she took and made it 2-1 five mins before half time. The Hemel ladies were glad to hear the half time whistle when it came. Hemel 2-1 up at the break the game had the feel that the next goal would win it. The second half St Albans pressed hard throwing everything at Hemel but the whole Hemel defence stood firm and not allowing many chances. Twenty minutes in to the second half a defence splitting pass by Bianca Hedgecock saw Amy Bentall bearing down on goal, everything appeared to go in slow motion, Amy pulled the trigger and in to the corner the ball went, 3-1 to the Ladies.
While the St Albans team continued to push , we knew the game was over. It may not have been the best display by the ladies this year but they worked hard to get the job done.The Ladies had done it to go with their league triumph. A nice little double. Up the Town.
Thank you to the mascots and all the supporters who came over. Great encouraging and loud support.”

Emma Trill pulling it back to 2-1 for Garston’s 1st team with 25 minutes to go, the 2nd XI youngsters holding onto their lead to win the competition and end their debut season playing in Beds & Herts Women’s Division One on a high having not played much at all sitting bottom for a long spell a strong end to the season seeing them stay up convincingly.
