News story posted: 20 Jul '10 09:48
Billericay Town Ladies pre-season campaign commenced against a well organised West Ham Reserves side, at New Lodge on Sunday.
First half saw both teams playing good football switching play allowing the game to flow. Billericay’s defensive line up did well to deal with West Hams strike force. Hollie Dimambro in goal for Billericay made an excellent save from a West Ham free kick, her one handed dive pushing the ball past the post. West Ham opened the scoring from a miss kick clearance from their goal keeper, their wide player found space on the wing getting round the Billericay full back and from a tight angle slipped the ball past Dimambro.
Second half started just as strong, changes were made by both teams as the heat was sapping the player’s energies, Billericay’s best chance fell to Paris Smith, a cross field pass saw her one on one with the keeper who did well to save. West Ham went on to score 2 further goals in the last 15 as Billericay started to tire and West Ham's match fitness was the difference between the 2 teams in this last period.
Kim Coster, was pleased with the teams performance as this is their first outing against a strong West Ham side, she was also impressed with Billericay’s new signings of Jade Nelson, Sally Appleton, Claire Cappon and Laura Wheeler as they fitted in perfectly to the team shape and is looking for a positive start to the season.
Billericay have another tough preseason on Sunday away to Colchester reserves at Shrub End – 2pm KO.
Team Hollie Dimambro, Robyn Strauss, Leanne Wood, Sally Appleton, Jade Nelson, Rebecca Allen, Laura Wheeler Lisa Robins, Sarah Matson, Ginnie James, Sarah Bovington, Sam Edwards, Nikki Dunsdon, Sophie Whiting, Paris Smith, Claire Cappon.
