Eagles Lose Out in League Cup Semi Final!


Newhall's eagles began a very important week that see's them play a league cup and challenge cup semi final,both against under 16's champions Chellaston,and what could possibly be the runners up spot decider against Wirksworth at home next Saturday!

First up the league cup at Alvaston Park against a superb Chellaston team that have won our league for the last four years and are sure to win the league again this year!

From the off Chellaston saw the better of the play and Chloe Woodward produced a good save after the Chellaston attacker found herself free from six yards.

Chellaston should have taken the lead after a free header from again six yards was put over the bar!

The eagles settled down after the miss and took the lead on 8 minutes after superb build up play on the edge of the box from Natalie Eley and Keely Deery set up Emily Bridge to hold off the defender and finish well into the bottom corner.

Chellaston applied the pressure after the goal and Chloe produced a fantastic save from point blank range as Chellaston looked certain to equalise.

Chellaston then fired wide when the attacker found herself free at the back post and Natalie picked up the ball on Newhalls next attack and her shot was deflected wide.

From the resulting corner Natalie nearly scored direct from the kick.

Chloe was soon called upon, she was quick off her line to thwart the attack with a brave save at the Chellaston attackers feet.

On 27 minutes Chellaston equalised, the player found herself free on the edge of the box and put a high shot over Chloe to level the scores.

Just before the half time whistle Chloe produced another fantastic save as the Chellaston attacker ran into the box, Chloe was off her line like a shot to block the shot.

HT 1-1

With Chellaston in the unusual position of not winning by half time they came out with some urgency.

From the kick off two passes down the middle of the park saw the Chellaston player shoot over from 10 yards.

On Chellastons next attack Chloe dived to her right pushing the shot onto the post and the follow up was put wide of the goal.

Jodie Oughton was then played in on goal but was unable to get her shot on target.

Chellaston saw a shot hit the post with Chloe beaten and on 66 minutes Chloe saved well but in the mad scrabble afterwards the Chellaston player found the net with the eagles defence unlucky not to clear their lines.

The eagles pushed forward looking for the equaliser but found the Chellaston defence in a stubborn mood, Melita Astle, Rosie Collins, Emily Bridge and Natalie all tried but were unable to get past the Chellaston defence.

With the eagles pushing forward looking to level the scores, Chellaston broke and a swift move saw the ball in the eagles net with four minutes remaining, knocking the stuffing out of the girls!

FT 3-1

Squad - Chloe Woodward, Keira Dyche, Courtney Macintosh, Charlotte Catlin, Natalie Eley, Mikeala Colebrook, Whitney Garner, Keeley Deery, Emily Bridge, Jodie Oughton, Melita Astle, Rosie Collins.

POM - A very tough choice this week with some great performances all over the pitch from defence to attack but for the task she was set Whitney Garner gets the vote, stopped Chellastons captain from running the game from midfield with her endless energy and tackling!


As I said before from defence to attack there were some great performances, all taking responsibility and putting in a fantastic shift!

Unlucky girls you made me so proud!!
