Report: Women's U18s continue strong season start

The young Chairgirls secure 3 points with a 4-1 victory.

11 September 2021

The young Chairgirls were in action at home again after last week's fantastic result.

Supporters were out in force at Lane End to see the U18s take on AFT Reading U18’s. The squad were fired up with some key players returning from sickness, feeling strong and really looking forward to the second game of the season.

The first half was a tight affair which saw some determined football with strong players on both sides pushing for the opening goal without success. The first challenge came from Reading, but Chairgirls keeper Sophie Carter backed it up with a good save. Wycombe held resolute and pushed on, creating good goalscoring opportunities and forcing their way through the AFT defence for Molly Carter to score 2 wonderfully finished goals - both of which were unfortunately deemed offside.

Nothing fazed the Wanderers and they came out of the blocks at the get go in the second half, taking the lead straight away with a wonderful strike from Jorja-Louise Bray (assist from Nina Cook) from outside of the box looping over the keeper into the far post. 

An immediate response from AFT capitalising on a rare defensive error from Wanderers allowed them to draw level. 

Despite their setback, Wycombe continued to drive on throughout the match with another great passing display forcing pressure upon AFT who defended strongly and eventually conceded a corner which was wonderfully delivered into the box by Jorja-Louise Bray whose cross was met with a well timed header flicked into the net by Jess Fuller to put Wycombe 2-1 up.

Shortly after a nice passing move which saw Naomi Tilley felled just outside the box and up stepped Char Hill with another show stopper free kick to put Wycombe 3-1 ahead. 

With 15 minutes left on the clock Wycombe were rewarded with another corner beautifully served up by Amelia Gilbert right to the head of Naomi Tilley who, with a well timed leap, heading into the back of the net making it 4-1 to WWFC.

Every single player on the pitch put in 100% to deliver a magnificent defensive display and textbook passing and through balls to produce a 4-1 win over a very strong Reading AFT U18 team. 

It was a magnificent effort from the girls who are now settling as a new side and all squad players should be very proud of their efforts, team ethic and work rate.

Team: Sophie Carter, Chloe Mackay, Vicky Collett, Ruby Paish, Nina Cook, Jess Fuller, Jorja-Louise Bray, Molly Carter, Brooke Sanders, Char Hill, Amelia Sage, Naomi Tilley, Georgia Price and Lenis Cook.
