Melksham Girls U13 Triumph in Westbury battle

Melksham U13 girls were ready to continue their fight for the league title on 15th March and got off to a very strong start, with Tilly Dunnery netting within the first three minutes.

Putting Phoebe Collyer up from to hold the ball up, and distribute to the wingers worked with her creating a corner that led to a second from Tilly.

The second half was a much closer affair with Westbury pressuring, but Melksham scored twice on the break with Abbie Wilding scoring from right wing with Tilly getting a strong asset, and Phoebe, now moved into midfield scoring the team’s fourth. The scoreline did not do justice to Westbury who pressured and battled all game.

Melksham Girls U13 progress in league cup

The Melksham U13s girls good fortune this season continued with a 4-1 win away to Chippenham in the cup. 

The game was harder than the scoreline suggested, but Melksham had secured a 3-0 half-time scoreline with goals from Sarah Pearce, Cicely Stanley and Chloe Curtin.  The second half was tighter with both teams scoring one and Chippenham keeping the Melksham girls under pressure.

Melksham remain top of the league, and progress to the semi-final in the cup away to Frome Youth.
