Emily Jamieson caps fine display for Herts Schoolgirls with goal against Essex
Emily Jamieson capped a fine performance for Hertfordshire Schoolgirls’ under-16s team with a goal in the county’s first game of the season.
Fifteen-year-old Jamieson, a pupil of Nobel School and representing the county for the third consecutive season, was part of the team which lost 4-1 to Essex in Hertfordshire’s first match of the season.
Jamieson plays her football in the Thames Valley League for Bedwell Rangers Ladies under-18s and is Hertfordshire’s top scorer over the past three seasons.
Hitchin Belles Blues under-11s secured their second set of points in only their first season as a team with a 3-3 draw against Royston.
Excellent goalkeeping from Maya Logan and three goals in the first half from Charlotte Hindmarch earned the Blues the well-earned draw.
Hitchin Belles Whites under-11s travelled to St Albans City Youth (North) and maintained their unbeaten record with a goalless draw.
Player of the match Courtney Edwards played with maturity as she directed play from the back and she helped her side to a draw by snuffing out a last-minute attack by the home side.
The Belles remain top of their division with 19 points from seven games.
Another tough cup draw saw Team Baldock under-14 girls travel to current County Cup holders Garston Ladies Mets on a foggy Sunday morning.
Baldock were 4-0 down at half-time after a performance that matched the conditions.
Although Baldock improved as the match went on and created chances of their own, Garston scored a further four goals in the second half to progress to the quarter-finals with an 8-0 win.
In the under-14s Challenge Cup Bedwell Rangers Dragons fell to a 10-0 defeat against Bishop’s Stortford Youth.
Bedwell Rangers’ girls teams had a successful morning at the latest HGFPL Festival held in Barnet, with each side playing four matches.
The under-eights won two and drew two of their matches with Ella and Emma both scoring.
The under-nines won three and lost one with Aisling scoring four and Courtney and Sophie getting one apiece.
The under-10s fielded two teams, one of which won three matches and drew one with Aimee and Alicia both scoring three goals, with the other team winning one, drawing two and losing one of their matches with Caitlin scoring their only goal direct from a goal kick.
To cap off a good morning for the club Emma won the fair play award for the under-eights section and Sophie did likewise in the under-nines event.
