U18 Girls just come up short against Trojans

On Saturday, Knole Park’s U18 Girls just came up short in the U18 Plate quarter finals against a good Trojans team.

The girls came out of half time determined to equalise and would have done, but for the Trojans defence holding firm. Two further goals from Trojans meant it finished 1-4 to Trojans.

Women’s 1st Team are through in style in the EH Plate!
The Knole Park women’s 1st team beat Havant 7-0 on Sunday in the EH Plate. Havant play in South Central Premier League so there was still a huge gulf in league status between the sides. But with both sides having both lost their first rounds matches in the EH Cup anything could happen in the first round of this second tier competition.

The first goal from Olivia Breed was after an excellent steal and pass from Anna Faulstich in midfield. Olivia ran half the pitch and rounded the goalkeeper to score. The second half was a much more dominant display for Knole Park. Anna Faulstich scored a very well-taken hat-trick, Sarah Eversfield, Grace Reeve and Olivia Breed claiming the others to make it 7-0 to Knole Park.

The quarter Final is against Newbury & Thatcham on Sunday with a place in the Semi-Finals awaiting the winners.
