The Tuesday Round-Up

   The Tuesday Round-Up – Edition Six

 Edition Six of The Tuesday Round-Up sees a limited programme of league fixtures across the East of England this past Sunday. Nevertheless there was plenty of football action taking place as teams dispersed back to there counties to take part in the early rounds of their respective County Cups. That means the ‘Round-Up’ isn’t as straight forward as normal as we deal with different FA outlets and sites to find the information and trust me it can vary greatly depending on what FA we are talking about. Will of course try and cover as much of the action as I can in this latest edition of The Tuesday Round-Up so let’s plunge into the action.

FAWPL Southern Division

      Most FAWPL Southern Division sides won’t enter their respective County Cup competitions until the latter stages, assuming that is they have entered at all, so their was 4 fixtures that took place in the division this weekend. Brighton & Hove Albion WFC extended their lead at the top of the table and continue to remain unbeaten taking the points off one of their main title rivals Portsmouth Ladies in the process. Kate Natkiel gave the visitors the lead on 7 minutes, didn’t take Portsmouth long to hit back Uni Umotong pulling the scores level 3 minutes later. 1-1 at half time, Lucy Somes gave Brighton a 2-1 lead 15 minutes into the 2nd half and Charlotte Gurr made it 3-1 on 80 minutes.

  The tie was a repeat of last years 3rd Round Qualifying tie back then Wymondham Town Ladies took Cambridge all the way before eventually going out in extra-time. This time around Wymondham were coming into the tie in great form, Cambridge had struggled at the start of the season. The higher league side started brightly and created numerous chances with Wymondham settling into a disciplined shape working hard to keep their goal intact. 0-0 at half time Wymondham grew in confidence the longer the match wore on an error at the back mid way through the 2nd half from Cambridge allowed Wymondham’s Sally Hammerton to steal in on the ball take it around Cambridge keeper Verity Crook and place the ball into the empty net beyond, a brilliant save from Wymondham goalkeeper Hamilton-Rout denied Cambridge a late equaliser to force extra-time again as they held on to claim a big scalp and reach the next round of the FA Women’s Cup going further than they ever have before.

Into injury time 94 minutes played Brighton are awarded a free kick outside the Coventry area the ball is flighted in towards goal the keeper is looking to take the ball is clattered into as Brighton’s forwards look to meet the ball it goes in the back of the net substitute Charlotte Young credited with the winner as the referee allows the goal. A clip of the goal was put on social media have had a chance to look at it and it’s split opinion even amongst my work colleagues one’s a former non league striker and he says, goal, the others a referee and he would’ve blown up for a foul on the keeper… both though like myself have watched it a dozen times one of those I think that could go either way, Coventry are one of Brighton’s main rivals to challenge for the title will this be a decisive result still early days and these thing’s have a habit of levelling themselves out over a season.

Plymouth had hope of getting back into the match straight after the break Jessica Jone scoring the goal, the home side were reduced to 10 on 64 minutes with Jones receiving her 2nd yellow and being sent to the dressing room. Portsmouth took advantage with Molly Clark and Jessica Fampton both scoring before Umotong completed her hat-trick in the closing minutes.

Lewes Ladies are moving in the right direction up the table their 2nd league win in a row at home to Forest Green Rovers Ladies, Paige Walder, Ellie Lock and Danielle Lane giving them a 3-0 1st half lead, Kirsty Richardson scored early in the 2nd half to pull it back to 3-1 but Lewes held out to claim the 3 points.
