An early start for the Ladies 1s with a 10.15am pb in Gravesend but we were wide awake and started strong, taking everything that we needed to work on from the last couple of games and implementing from the off.

The first few minutes of the game saw Meopham test the New Beccs defence but we handled this with composure and ease. Soon we were counter attacking and with some lovely triangular play up the pitch on both flanks were penetrating the 'D'. After a few short corners which the Meopham defence responded to well we secured another and this time Tracy dummied the defender to crack a direct shot in to the bottom right corner. We continue to pile on the pressure with fantastic play involving all members of the team, even Jess who placed the ball to our defence with ease from the 3 clearances she made all game.

Our half time talk focused on stepping up the pressure and we did this from the off in the second half with some lovely periods of play moving the ball using the full breadth and depth of the pitch. We had several more goal scoring opportunities which we were unable to convert but then a lovely reverse stick shot by Tracy secured her second goal.

Final whistle saw us claim a 2-0 win and our first 3 pointer of the season. Great individual and collective performance from all members of the team and special mention to MOTM Rosie who played a variety of positions giving her all for the whole match. Well played team!!
