DESPITE an incredibly wet start to the game, Nailsea came out strongly, having most of the possession and attacking play in the first-half of the match.

Frys also had opportunities and managed to take control of the match, scoring three goals. Nailsea got one back with a goal by Ali Hill, but Frys continued to create opportunities and put away two more.

Hill scored another goal for Nailsea in the last minutes of the match, making the final score 2-5.

THE seconds travelled away without a keeper and were again grateful to Chloe Turner, who offered to stand between the posts.

Nailsea captain Zoe Buck commanded her defence well, ably supported by Lottie Boyle. In midfield, Kate Hodges, who narrowly missed being player of the match, provided ammunition to the Nailsea attack.

Tash Turner’s work rate and speed had the home side struggling, while player of the match Danni Doule was unlucky not to get on the score sheet. However, it was the lively Jo Marshall who took her opportunity and struck home what turned out to be the only goal of the match.

The second half was more of the same until Nailsea’s attacker Harriet Rowney had to leave the field with a muscle injury. Nailsea held out, despite playing with 10 and an excellent save by Turner kept Nailsea ahead.

NAILSEA juniors gave a confident and well-organised performance in their first match.

Firstly they played a seven-a-side game where they experimented with positions and subbing. The Nailsea girls settled well, playing with enthusiasm and enjoyment. They moved on to a full size pitch to play 11-a-side and unfazed used the space, efficiently played the ball around and passed well.

The coach should be heartened by the performances of Jasmine and Rosanna Wood, Rachel Simms, Eva Jarvis, Dannielle Clarke, Cat Coates, Lizzy Williams, Alice Hill, Meg Caple, Molly Chidzey and Bernie Forge.

Nailsea is looking to expand their lower age range and have coaching available for girls and boys aged eight years upwards. Training is at the Downs School on Mondays (6.30-7.30pm) or email
