Under 16 Girls vs Derbyshire

Staffordshire Under 16 Girls 5 - 0 Derbyshire Under 16 Girls

On Monday 16th October Staffordshire's Under 16 Girls welcomed Derbyshire to Stafford Town for the first competitive home fixture of the 2023-2024 season. Following a positive and upbeat warm up, Staffordshire pressed well from kick off and dominated the first encounters. Staffs had to be patient but a fine run from Ella Sharp through the Derbyshire defence resulted in a clinical finish to open the scoring. Soon after Grace McGinty was through on goal following a threaded ball in behind and finished smartly to make it 2-0. Despite Derbyshire's efforts, Staffordshire continued to dominate with Ella Sharp scoring her second goal of the game after another pinpoint through ball, making it 3-0 at half-time. The second half continued in a similar manner to the first, with Ella Sharp securing her hat-trick after 52 minutes to make it 4-0. An opening for Ella Louise allowed her to slot home cooly to make it 5-0 to Staffordshire before the final whistle.

Manager Rob Wakelin and Head Coach Mark Wood would like to thank Derbyshire for the fixture and wish them the best of luck for the remainder of the season. Congratulations go to the Staffordshire girls on a fantastic start to the season, and thank you as ever to the parents and guardians for their excellent support.
