Pompey in the Community teams impress in Hampshire FA Youth Cup
It was a great day for two of Pompey in the Community’s girls’ football teams on Saturday, March 9 as they both played in their respective finals of the Hampshire FA Youth Cup at Front Lawn Academy in Havant, sponsored by Savvy Accounting Solutions.
The under-12s team, which is coached by Keiran Massey, took on Winchester City Flyers, having beaten three other teams on the road to the final.
The girls put in a fabulous performance, winning 4-1 with goals scored by Amelia Riley, Sophie Semer and Lexi Mann.
The Hampshire FA player of the match was Amelia Hodgkins.
Squad: Chloe Harper, Tilly Faulkner, Amelia Riley, Lexi Mann, Sophie Semer, Amelie Thompson, Saffi Bright, Brooke White, Faye White, Amelia Hodgkins, Caitlin Webb, Stevie Kennedy, Scarlett Lee, Talitha Stanley and Tiegan Fisher.
Following on from the success at 11am the under-13s could have felt under pressure for their game which kicked off at 1pm.
But they put on an impressive performance beating Pace Youth by 8-0.
Goals were netted by Ella Wright (two), Lucy Scutt, Annie Gardner and four from Macey Walters, who was voted the Hampshire FA player of the match and she also got to keep the match ball!
PitC coach Josh Parker was very pleased with his whole squad’s performance. Squad: Sienna Brennan, Millie Cowan, Annie Gardner, Isabella Grovinden, Grace Jarrett, Jess Robinson, Annabel Rutter, Lucy Scutt, Holly Stephan, Calla Swain, Farrah Thompson, Macey Walters, Bella Wilds and Ella Wright.
