Marlborough 3s vs Wells City Acorns


Marlborough 3s vs Wells City Acorns By Man of the Match Nyah Brooks

On Saturday 12th January 2019, the Marlborough Ladies 3rds travelled to Wells, Somerset on what was a very early cold morning. After a team talk by Captain Elsie Slater, with help from Karen Davis and Debbie James, our strong 12 players were eager to get going.
Marlborough went out determined to win. Holding possession well, making great passes, using the width of the pitch as well as driving forward really made the Wells City Acorns’ defence work hard to keep the Ladies 3rds out of the “D”. With Kirsten Steel scoring the first amazing goal from the edge of the “D”, made our team spirit ignite. Unfortunately Kirsten had a very short game due to injury to her knee and with our only substitution being made we were down to 11 players.
Heads up and with grit and determination our forwards, Elsie, Bea and Micah and our midfields, Imogen, Nyah and Ellie made some lovely passes around players. With many shots at goal, Nyah Brooks took the rebound from the goalie and hit a hard reverse sweep making Marlborough another goal up. Not long after was the whistle for half time.
Jelly babies were consumed at half time giving us the sugar hit we needed to keep playing well into the second half of the match, where we really came into our own. With great play from our defensive line, Karen, Evie, Debbie and Jane it was hard for the other team to get through. The whole team did amazing to keep any break aways under control and kept our goalie, Emma, out of danger. Unluckily a strong hit from the opposition meant they managed to score a goal. Not letting this get us down we came back stronger and harder. Many short corners were awarded to us and a great injection from Micah and a powerful strike by Debbie James, we added another goal to our score. We were on a roll and with 4 more goals in the second half by Bea, Elsie and two more from Nyah, it left us with a fantastic result of a 7-1 win.
This match was a great team effort. Our player of the match was awarded to Nyah Brooks, for her amazing three goals and not given up in and outside of the “D”.
Man of the Match, Nyah Brooks
