BOHEMIANS GIRLS U15 visited Kirkley & Pakefield and with a team made up of two different age groups. The girls seemed to gel together immediately and Chelsea and Natalie were causing havoc down the wings and from one of Chelsea's crosses Libby opened the scoring and quickly added a second. Chelsea then added a third with one of her trademark long-range efforts. Natalie added a fourth which was richly deserved and we then introduced Charlotte who within minutes added a fifth by half-time. K& P reduced the arrears but Laura added a sixth before the reintroduction of Libby saw her get her hat-trick The was well refereed by Chris Healey. PoM: Marcie and Chelsea followed very closely by Libby and special mention to Kirsty, Ellie, Holly and Charlotte who all performed well in their first experience of playing up a year. Next match U14s Sunday, Cliff Park, meet 12.30pm, against Bohemians B.

FILBY AND RUNHAM travelled to Newton Flotman. With just six minutes gone Greeny tested the keeper who pulled off a fine save, but two minutes later, after a great through ball by Ross, George slotted home the first. Greeny netted twice before half-time for 3-0. The team performance was fantastic. Connor was brave in goal, he made some fantastic stops and also saved two penalties. Second half the Yellow and Blues continued to press and more goals followed, Nathan R added another to his tally. Greeny netted twice more to give him four for the day and Watty got himself a pair.But for some fine goalkeeping they could have had more. Final score: Newton Flotman 0, Filby and Runham 8. Man-of-the-match: All 15.

GORLESTON RANGERS GIRLS U11 visited Sprowston missing Jess. Megan started her first game for the club and was soon involved. Rangers forced a string of early corners. Midway through the half Aimee conjured a goal from nothing, hooking a shot on the turn into the top corner. Neve and Hannah S combined very well down the right to create lots of chances. Neve, Megan and Aimee all went close before Aimee notched her second with a volley. Hannah S capped an excellent first half performance with a well-deserved goal. In defence, Hannah C and Mary reduced Sprowston to a handful of sorties. Izzy palmed a long-range effort onto the bar, but the half finished with a 3-0 cushion. Sprowston resumed taking the game to Rangers who were grateful for Beth's fresh legs and strong running. Mary, the Hannahs and Izzy dug in to weather the storm. Girl of the match Neve's return helped regain Rangers' shape. Mary finished a good move with a well struck low shot and got her second from the penalty spot for 5-0.

GORLESTON RANGERS U13A travelled to Caister and despite a not-so-convincing performance still came away with a 4-0 victory. Cameron Brooks opened the scoring after only two minutes, quickly followed by Jay Turner's second goal in consecutive weeks. Rangers continued to dominate possession and pass the ball around neatly, but there was no end-product and Rangers became slightly complacent, going in at half-time with only a 2-0 lead. Second half Rangers once again played the ball around with ease but lacked someone to take charge and put the game beyond Caister. Eventually two late goals, courtesy of Callum Batley and Declan Round, gave the score-line a more respectable look, although Caister never gave up trying, and but for coming up against a decent Rangers' back line might have scored a consolation goal. Man of the match: Ollie Brown, who intercepted play and always looked to play the ball out. No match this week. Training at the rec on Saturday, 10.30am-noon. Any problems, call Steve 01493 669241.

GORLESTON RANGERS U12B hosted Burnt Hill at Lynn Grove on Sunday. They started brightly but then seemed to lose their shape and Burnt Hill scored two quick goals. Rangers then struggled to pass the ball and kept finding the opposition players. After a half-time team talk, they hoped to turn things around but two early goals put the game to bed. George took a nasty knock in the back of the neck which led to a lengthy stoppage, and thanks to Burnt Hill who assisted in this, with their manager a trained medic. George was able to carry on and Rangers stabilised themselves and in the last 15 minutes put some good pressure on Burnt Hill but could not turn this into a goal. Final score a 4-0 defeat. Man of the match was George for taking to the field again after his injury. Training Saturday as normal. Away to Freethorpe on Sunday 2pm kick-off, travel details at training.

GORLESTON RANGERS U16B met Mutford. Loius capitalized early on to put them 1-0 up. Mutford were denied by a fast-reacting Rangers defence. Mutford cleared a corner only to see it fall to Nick's feet who belted a lovely ground shot from outside the box to put Rangers us 2-0 up. Mutford pushed hard and scored from a deflected free-kick outside the area. Second half Rangers pushed forward from the off, creating a couple more chances, then Mutford took advantage of a lull only to be denied by Rangers' keeper. Rangers' third came through some great link play, the ball laid back for Nick to strike a screamer into the top right corner from outside the box for 3-1. Rangers created a fourth, put away nicely by Callum, to finish 4-1 to Rangers. Thanks to the referee Ian who controlled the game very well. Training as usual Saturday, next game at Lynn Grove, 12pm ko.

HEMSBY HORNETS U10A, promoted and with a new look, travelled to a very good Kirkley & Pakefield B on Sunday. Hornets had four new players - Owen, Nathan, Connor and Brennan - who hadn't played together before and two hadn't played league matches at all. However, the boys didn't look out of their depth in the higher league and tried to replicate the things they had learned in training. Defensively Hornets looked very good, with Brady marshalling and being aided first by Dominic then Nathan and anything that did get through had to then get past man of the match, Owen, in goal. A couple of free-kicks by Dominic went close and Brennan took one in the second half that hit the side netting. Connor and Hadley in midfield were getting the ball moving and trying to create chances. With three minutes left, it seemed that a goalless draw was going to be the final result, but a lapse in concentration left the striker with time to finish low into the corner to give Kirkley the lead. Hornets kept battling, but failed to get the point their performance deserved. Thank you to all the parents for their support during the re-building of the team, successes will surely follow.

HEMSBY HORNETS U7B entertained a hard-working Gorleston Rangers B. Hemsby attacked straight from the kick-off and continued to pressurise the Gorleston defence throughout. Jack was given the captain's armband and put in a much-improved performance with some strong runs and tackling. Sammy again worked tirelessly up front with Matthew, whose talent didn't go unnoticed and was well rewarded. With three players scoring their first goals for the club, this was a performance that the whole team can be proud of. Note new training start time of 9.30am. Next game on Sunday away to Kirkley & Pakefield A, ko 10.30am. Tommy will contact players/parents.

BOHEMIANS GIRLS U11 are the early league leaders. They played an experienced, physically big, Dereham. Millie crossed for Ella to dummy the ball to leave Briarnie to hammer past the stranded keeper. Millie made it 2-0 by half-time. Antonia and Jordan were solid at the back. Georgia, Indianna and Rhianna gave the opposition many problems with their tackling. Olivia had a few shots to save and coped well. Bohs stretched their lead with Millie scoring a hat-trick, Briarnie scoring again and Rhianna rewarded for her terrier like play with a well-taken goal. Dereham scored a couple of consolation goals with fast breaks. Indianna and Ella fired over the bar. Olivia was player-of-the-match with her saves maintaining Bohs' impressive record.

BOHEMIANS GIRLS U11 at Firside were magnificent and won 9-1. Briarnie scored four goals in quick succession enabling Andy and Alan to swap the team around. The reorganisation saw Ella, Jordan, Antonia, Millie and Olivia getting on the score sheet. Antonia and Jordan adapted to the forward's role to score their debut goals for Bohs. Firside had difficulty getting the ball out of their own half as Rhianna, Georgia and Indianna ran themselves into the ground. Georgia played in goal in the second half, showing great skill in stopping long shots. Indianna and Rhianna were unlucky not to score. Indianna was player-of-the-match for giving 100 per cent throughout.

BOHEMIANS U13 GIRLS were home to Swanton Herons and lost 3-0. Swanton were organised, passed the ball quickly, and competed for every ball, all the things Boh's did in pre-season, but failed to do in this gamet. There were too many players letting a few do all the work. The players who came out of this game with any credit were the majority of the defence, with new squad member Michelle outstanding and robust in defence, and deserving her player of the match award. A big improvement is needed by the whole team, who must switch on from the start. Bohemians U13 Girls are looking for two experienced players to strengthen their squad we are looking for midfield or strikers. Training is Wednesday night, phone Mike on 01493 301602 or Ross on 01493 655532.

GORLESTON RANGERS GIRLS U11 had another win at home over a competitive Waveney side. Neve and Aimee both went close from open play. Waveney struggled to get out of their half thanks to strong defending by Mary and Hannah C allowing Rangers to force a series of corners. The Tigers clawed their way back into the half with good use of long throws. Rangers opened the scoring with an excellent passing move between Mary, Hannah S, Neve and finally Aimee who side footed home. Neve and Jess made way for spells from Megan and Hannah Sbegan to push forward more. Waveney seized on a breakaway and scored with an excellent individual effort. Rangers began the second half strongly. Neve and Jess came into the game more. Rangers, aided by the slope, camped in Waveney's half and Aimee scored her and Rangers' second. Megan re-entered the foray and her shot was diverted onto the post. From the resulting corner, Rangers won a penalty. This was neatly despatched by Mary. Waveney could not break down the hard-tackling Hannahs and failed to really test Izzy in the second half. Rangers were well worth the 3-1 victory. Girl-of-the-match: Megan for a great second half. Next: Bohemians away.

SHRUBLANDS U13 GIRLS played Waveney U13. Shrubs in first half had one of those days you just want to forget about, albeit taking nothing away from Waveney who played some good football, with score at half-time 1-0 to Shrublands. Managers Julie and Janet made it quite clear this was a poor first half and the girls responded in great style by scoring within minute and adding a further two goals to win 4-0 which was good result when these two teams were winners and runners-up last season. A big thanks to those parents who are getting there early to help out with goals, etc. It's nice to see everyone pulling together, and thanks to Andrew, John and Nikki for their help in putting up goals last week from all at Shrubs U13/U14 Girls.

BLUNDESTON MAGPIES U11 moved to the top of the table with an 8-3 victory over Bohemians U11. Matthew got the scoring started after a swift move from back to front early on, the rest of the first half was end to end, Patrick was getting into some promising positions without any luck. James scored direct from a 30-yard free-kick before Bohemians pulled one back. James scored following a corner for a 3-1 half-time lead. Magpies had the majority of the play during the second half, scoring five times interspersed with two good goals from Bohemians. Ryan attacking down the left created the chances for man of the match Patrick to score a quick-fire hat-trick, Jamie scored his first of the season from an excellent quick throw-in from Logan and James' perfect weighted pass put Matthew through for the final goal. Further chances were created as the Magpies midfield dominated the play but the Bohemians keeper was equal to them.

BLUNDESTON MAGPIES U12 played some great football particularly in the first half where they fought back from going a goal down to get into a 2-1 lead. The half finished at 2-2 with Magpies' “pretty football” slightly edging the less sophisticated but effective Gorleston Rangers approach. Unfortunately for the home team a 10-minute spell after the break saw Magpies fail to deal with a number of high balls over the top and concede four almost identical goals in quick succession. At 6-2 down capitulation was on the cards but the Magpies are a different team this year and Patch and Stints drove the team forward to respond with two quality goals. The last 10 minutes of the game were all Magpies as they laid siege to the Rangers goal from a number of free kicks and open play. Goals: Patch, Connor, Ally, Rhys. Man-of-the-match: Cam.

BOHEMIANS GIRLS U15 entertained North Walsham. First half they enjoyed the majority of possession but the NW centre back was in commanding form and Bohs enjoyed more success down the wings. It was from one of Chelsea's good runs down the left wing that a good cross found Chloe who finished well for a narrow half-time lead. The second half saw Bohs press higher up the pitch and Megan extended the lead with a fine long-range effort. Libby, after good work in the box, added a third. NW came back and forced Hollie into two fine saves before a good cross by Natalie found Laura at the back post, who volleyed home. Hollie and Megan shared the player-of-the-match award. Next match Saturday away to Jex, meet CPMS at 9am or at Eaton Park for 9.45am latest.

BOHEMIANS GIRLS U12 entertained Dereham Wanderers and won 5-0. The first half Bohemians played some excellent football but struggled to get through Wanderers' defence where the goalkeeper was fantastic. It took Bohs 10 minutes to score their first goal and confidence grew. Jackie had a fantastic game and made many good saves when Dereham broke through, Toni Nicole and Megan also had another strong game to keep Dereham out. Zoe, Leanne, Martha, Millie and Molly were on form again with some great passes, dominating and creating several chances. Goals: Molly, Leanne, Zoe and Martha, her first two goals for Bohemians. Next game away to Kirkley & Pakefield (ko noon).

BOHEMIANS YOUTH U13A played an in-form Waveney. After 15 minutes Noel was sent through on goal, shrugged off the challenge and hit a fine shot into the right corner . Bohs still found it difficult to retain possession. Waveney had a few corners that caused Bohs a problem but no real strikes on goal. Bohs started the second half slightly better. Dan H. started to use his pace to full effect and got down the left to put in some testing crosses, Vialli replaced Noel and his pace gave the opposition a different challenge, Robbie was finding more space playing higher up the pitch. Henry B and Jamie had to remain strong and they battled well for every ball. Ryan, Sam, Brodie and Henri P were keeping the Waveney wingers out of the game. Ainsley was sent down the left, his cross caused Waveney a problem, and Aston got to the ball with his head for 2-0. DefendersMitch and Josh stuck to their task well. However, the pressure eventually told as a penalty was conceded, Kingsley getting a hand to the shot which had just too much power to make it 2-1. With only minutes remaining Kingsley made a fine double save. Final score: 2-1. Next game Caister away.
