Lichfield Diamonds football round-up

Hilton Harriers Girls U13 0 Lichfield Diamonds Girls U13 7: It took until the first goal of the game for the girls to start playing in the sort of fashion they are capable of.

The goal came courtesy of Cartwright who then added to her tally via a deflection from her own corner off an unfortunate defender.

The hat-trick was completed before half time with a cracking finish.

In the second half Diamonds dominated proceeding and but for some excellent goalkeeping, the woodwork and bad luck, it could have been a lot more than the four that was added via a Cartwright brace, Edwards and Hart.

Unluckiest player of the day Meehan who must be wondering how much more she could have done to score.

Lichfield Diamonds Girls U12 7 St Georges U12 0: Diamonds’ first game of the season went well, moving up from mini soccer to a bigger pitch with offside will take a few games to get to.

On her debut new signing Steph Speck opened the scoring and quickly established a good partnership with Katie Hitchcock who bagged four of the seven goals.

With Jodie Whorton and Megan Errington also putting in good debut performances, Diamonds dominated the game and should have had more goals but in the end another from Speck and one from Rosie Mason-Green got the season off to a good start.

Chellaston Reds Girls U11 1 Lichfield Diamonds Girls U11 9: The Diamonds U11 team got off to a brilliant start and raced into a 5-0 half time lead with goals from Molly Mathews and Chelsea Czekeryla.

New signings Connie Lever and Lily Hassall fitted into the team well on their debuts.

Further goals came in the second half from Mathews who took her tally to six and Czekeryla who completed her hat-trick.

Rhianna Cleverly put in a good performance on her debut and was unlucky not to get on the score sheet.

With many new players joining the team this season, establishing a good lead early on enabled the manager to look at players in various positions.
