Brentford WFC – Blog on a two game Sunday

Charlotte Tanner tells us all about Sunday’s ‘double header’ in this Brentford WFC Blog


Hello All,


We were raring to go again after the game being called off against Battersea and Wandsworth. Unfortunately last weeks game against Spurs was called off due to a waterlogged pitch.


So it was onto training, which is going well, we worked on technical skills due to another week inside. Everything with a ball then we finish off with a good game at the end.


Due to the Battersea and Wandsworth away game being cancelled a couple of weeks ago, we had a double header on Sunday, 30 minutes each way with a 15 minute break in the middle of the games.


Line up was:

Caroline, Sophie Lee, Manuela, Charlotte, Amber LL, Lisa, Goody, Sophie T, Lavana, Ashley, Holly. Subs; Dana and Sonja.

Sonja is new to Brentford Women’s FC and it was her first game today. We welcome you into the team and hope you enjoyed your first battle with us.


First game:

Five minutes into the first half Ashley Cheatley had a clear shot on goal saved. We passed the ball well and tried to make it into the final third. We won a corner 24 minutes in. Lavana stepped up to take it and it went straight over the keeper into the back of the net. 1-0 Brentford.


We fought hard not to let Battersea through our back four. They got a free kick which was hit just over the bar just before half time. 1-0 at half time to us. One quarter down.

Second half shaped up well, until the last minute. Manuela hit the post from 25 years out and we failed to rebound. Goody’s free kick goes wide 5 minutes later. Battersea got through minutes later when we lost possession and the shot bounced off Caroline for one of their players to tap it in. The first game finished 1-1.


Second game


We started of sharp and strong. Lavana went on a run, dribbling through a few players and got a goal in the eighth minute. Dana shot on target only a few minutes later to be pushed wide. It was mainly us in the first half but we could only get the one goal. 1-0 half time to us.


We set off in the second half well, Goody shot over the bar and Lisa shot on target to be deflected wide. Dana got through on goal and had a 1on1 with the keeper. The Keeper pulled off a great save sending it for a corner.


52 minutes gone a loose ball headed towards our goal.  Caroline came out for the ball and collided with a Battersea player. The ball rebounded behind Caroline and the ball is rolling too fast and I ended up picking out of the net. The game Finished 1-1.


We managed to pick up 2 points instead of none which is a bonus.


Bees you later
