EH U14G vs Brooklands 14 October 2018

Timperley battled hard...
The Girls’ U14 England Hockey campaign this year kicked with an away match at Brooklands on 14th October 2018.
The first half was very even with both teams having a lot of possession and a lot of exciting hockey to watch. Timperley took an early lead through a Lucy McBride goal before finishing the half 1-1. Following Beth’s team talk at half time, Timperley had more periods of very strong play in the second half, however were unable to convert any of the opportunities and ended the game losing 4-1 (with Brooklands capitalising on a number of set pieces).
Despite a few last minute injuries to a couple of our key players the Timperley team battled hard and never gave up until the final whistle. This enthusiasm combined with the additional planned training sessions will stand the girls in good stead for the next matches against Carlisle on 4th November and Fylde on 18th November.
