The sun decided to shine down on the U14s visit to Rushcliffe School in the leafy suburb of West Bridgford for our first away match of the season.

The match kicked off and with their first attack of the game Derby won a corner. Katie put in a superb ball, allowing Kirky to strike home with an adept first time shot. (0-1 Derby)

The lead only lasted for 8 minutes when the West Bridgford #10
(Hannah) equalised with a fine solo effort against the run of play.
(West Bridgford 1-1)

In the 25th minute Derby restored their lead. Having been awarded a
freekick, Maggie stepped up and made no mistake with a direct shot to the left of the goal. (1-2 Derby)

Five minutes later, Sophie B increased Derby’s lead, pouncing when the ball was only half cleared and firing home through a crowded box. (1-3 Derby)

Half Time: 1-3

In first 20 minutes of the second half Derby failed to capitalise on
their possession and it was only then that Iesha picked up a loose
ball on the edge of the box and drilled it home. (1-4 Derby)

Two minutes later the West Bridgford Goalkeeper could only parry a fine shot by Iesha and Evie was quickest to react shooting home from inside the box. (1-5 Derby)

Iesha scored her second and Derby’s sixth with a fine half volley,
latching onto a cross from the left, giving the keeper no chance. (1-6
