Player of the Match – Keely Harding

This was the first game of the year for many of the players, and many of us hadn’t played together as a team. However, enthusiasm was high, given it was our first game on the new pitch. Exciting! It took both teams time, to work out the ball speed on the pitch, but the game soon turned into a tightly fought match. Chester, took control of the game, with plenty of attack in the Oxton half, and managed to score in the first half, a well fought goal from Keely Harding, left Chester in the lead after the first half.

The second half started well, with spirits high, and Chester worked better as a team, communication between players improved, and we took our chances. Despite not having a goal keeper, our fab four defensive players: Keely Harding, Stephne Douglas, Harriet Haynes and Allie Brennan, were solid and strong, providing Oxton very little opportunity to gets shots at goal. This enabled us to push forward and score another goal, a fantastic pass into the circle, from Lucy Letts, enabled Diane Yeoman to finish off with another goal. Some skilful play in the midfield, helped Chester maintain the lead, despite being down to ten players for the last ten minutes. All in all, a thoroughly enjoyable game, and a well fought game.
