Match Reports 2020 - 2021

Sunday, October 25th

Langton Green Lynx 4 - 3  Tunbridge Wells Youth Football Club
(Annabelle (2), Florrie (2))

Another excellent match for the U12s today, against Tunbridge Wells.

Despite drips on the ends of their noses, and puddles on the pitch, the girls put in a good performance, and stuck with it (the parents wavered a bit though!).

2 goals from Annabelle, and 2 goals from Florrie (I think - though it was tricky to see through the rain and my brolly).

Good midfield support, particularly from Emma and Meg, and some good cover at the back - well done Hannah and Layla.

Final score: Langton 4:3 Tunbridge Wells.

Sunday, October 11th

Langton Green Lynx 2 - 4 Rising Stars Youth
(Annabelle (2))

A beautiful morning on a lovely pitch at Somerhill Schools...the teams were fairly evenly matched, though Langton suffered with a sleepy first half. This allowed the Rising Stars Youth (Whitstable) a 2 goal lead in the first 15 minutes.

Annabelle scored soon after half time, but the visitors hit back within 3 minutes. More grit in the second half from Langton produced another goal (Annabelle again). However, Whitstable kept their cool and managed another goal for a final score of 2:4 to Whitstable.

Player of the match: Annabelle.

A triumphant game by the U12s against Staplehurst today!

  • One goal from Emma (23 mins).
  • One goal from Rebecca (50 mins).

Fantastic first match for the new U12s (Langton Green Lynx)... bigger pitch, bigger goals, longer halves, more players AND the first time playing with the offside rule. Goals from Annabel and Florrie, final score 2:1.

Player of the match: Florrie
