Chi City U15 Greens lift cup

Chichester City Girls Under-15s Green lifted the Hampshire County Cup after a 2-0 victory over Bournemouth Sports.

 

Goals either side of half-time from Amelia Hammond and Charlie Davey secured victory in a hard-fought final.

 

The clash was competitive from the first whistle as both teams tried to play football with a lot of the action centred in the midfield tussle.

 

There were few clear chances, although Chichester forced a few threatening moves but Bournemouth managed to clear their lines.

 

Chichester played out from the back and kept the ball well to put the Bournemouth defence under constant pressure. Only a series of strong tackles kept Chi at bay.

 

Bournemouth played on the counter attack and almost nicked the lead on the half-hour but fired wide after a swift break away.

 

Player of the match Davey then played a beautiful through ball into striker Hammond, who slotted the ball home just before half-time to give Chichester a 1-0 lead. Chichester came out strongly at the start of the second half and forced an early free-kick outside the area. Davey stepped up and smashed the ball into the roof of the net, giving the keeper no chance.

 

Changes were made by both teams as Chichester continued to press high and cause problems with their goalkeeper a spectator at times as Bournemouth struggled to make any headway.

 

Bournemouth had a couple of long-range efforts but they did not trouble Millie Delamont in goal as Chichester claimed the trophy.
