Derby County Ladies Football Club

Game Week 8 with Academy Director Dave Cholerton

This coming week the focus for our older age groups switches to off the field interests as training on Monday evening will see both our Education Partner Loughborough College and a local US Scholarship company come to talk to our U16s and U15s about options for the coming seasons.

The Ewe Rams have worked hard to find crucial links with education providers to give both players and parents opportunities to progress with both their football and their education on a duel pathway career that we promote here at the club.

The Foundation Team were back in action after a few weeks absence and they quickly got back into their stride with a 2-0 win over Mickleover Sports Girls in the League Cup with goals from Purdy and Roe securing the hard-fought win.

The U12 Black Socks had the task of taking on a free scoring team who are top of the league. The girls have been playing great football but not always getting the results they deserve. In this game we got both.

The girls came from behind to take a 3-1 lead with goals from Chelsea, Erin and Charlie and were resilient as ever to limit their opponents to only 1 chance. This result has now opened up the league and the girls continue with their development in the very challenging junior league.

The U16 were at home to Leamington Lions and continued their great form by winning 11-0 with goals from Jet 5, Eden 4, Chloe and Beth. The Derby coaching team described the performance as ‘the best football we’ve ever played’ and this was truly represented by the quality of the 11 goals scored by Ewe Rams. The u16 are in a very competitive league but their rivals are finding it hard to keep up with the pace set by our talented group of players.

The U15, had a big test against Kingshurst, who currently sit second in the league. The team achieved their first clean sheet last week and they produced another solid display to earn their second clean sheet in successive games.

At the other end the team were more clinical than their earlier in the season with Iesha scoring 3. The team won 3-0 and are beginning to meet the demands of the Warwickshire league.

The U14 Black Socks were without  a game but the U14 White Socks were in free scoring mood with a 16-0 victory against Outwoods. The U12 White Socks continue their development by playing a year up but lost to Hilton 4-0 whilst the U11 White Socks played Chellaston and the U9 and U10 played each other for the second time this season.
