The under 12 Girls played a  pre-season friendly on September 8th against Norwich City at Easton in a very physical game and were on the wrong end of a 5 - 1 score line. Captain for the day Sophie Rock was our lone goal scorer with a  goal in the second half. 

The following girls were involved, Adelaide Mott, Emma Bunn, Constance Canning, Teagan Felknor-Edwards, Rhiannon McKibben, Sophie Rock, Erica Hall, Nancy Bussey, Sophie Cooke and Danielle Homer.
We learnt a great deal from the game and it should help when we encounter them in the league.
September 15th -  Red Rose       1     Hethersett    3
Hethersett played some good football in patches to win their first league game of the season. The opposition scored from a controversial penalty give for handball. Hethersett scorers were -  Sophie Rock 2 and Adelaide Mott.

Team - Emma Bunn, Constance Canning, Sophie Cooke, Teagan Felknor-Edwards, Danielle Homer, Sophie Rock, Adelaide Mott  . Subs used Erica Hall, Ella Stephenson and Rhiannon McKibben.

October 13th       Dereham       3    Hethersett    1

In a very well contested game the girls went down 3 - 1 to a well organised Dereham team which has added a cutting edge to last year's team.

It is always a pleasure to visit this team, they are very friendly and always make everybody very welcome.

The girls put in a really good performance in a very physical game. Teagan had to come off with a bloody nose after using it to stop a shot and Sophie Cooke had to come off with a knee injury. This was a taste of real physical football that Hethersett will need to come to terms with.

November 3rd            Norwich City Canaries     4     Hethersett   0

A change of formation delivered an improved performance against Norwich City away at Thorpe Rec. Manager Kelvin Sadler was pleased with the performance last week despite going down 1 - 5 at home but this week the team managed to hold Norwich City to 1 - 0 at half time, Kelvin writes: in fact I think had we scored the first goal the result may have had a very favourable look at the end.


We conceded a second and at that point gave a few more fringe players some game time.
All available players have now played at least a half game against without doubt the best team in the league. In the first half there were periods when we outplayed Norwich and stood up to them physically but as the game went on and we weakened they took further chances to again finish with a four goal advantage.
However the two games back to back against Norwich have set a new bench mark of what we are aiming for as a team. These were two of our better performances despite the score lines.
We now have a gap until the end of the league season before we play them again and I would hope by then we will have learned to convert possession into goals and points.
TEAM:  Emma Bunn, Beth Evans, Constance Canning, Erica Hall, Teagan Felknor-Edwards, Ella Stephenson, Adelaide Mott. Subs (all played) - Nancy Bussey, Sophie Rock, Rhiannon Mc Kibben.

January 12th            Red Rose      1     Hethersett     0

Both teams played some quality football with plenty of chances being created although defences were mainly on top. Both teams improved the quality of their play after the break. Red Rose scored what turned out to be the only goal of the game. Hethersett attacked and went close on several occasions.

Team: Emma Bunn, Constance Canning, Nancy Bussey, Adelaide Mott, Sophie Cooke, Teagan Felknor-Edwards, Danielle Homer. Subs Ella Stephenson, Rhiannon McKibben

January 26th              Aylsham      1      Hethersett    3

After the disappointment of failing to take anything out of our last game, the girls turned in a very solid professional performance in very windy conditions.

They were 2 - 0 up at half time and with continued good passing football moved into a 3 - 0 lead. Beth and Connie were solid at the back and the movement of Ella and Sophie Rock was more than the Aylsham team could cope with.

After taking off both Connie and Beth Aylsham scored a late consolation goal.

A very good performance.

TEAM: Emma Bunn, Beth Evans, Constance Canning, Ella Stephenson, Teagan Felknor Edwards, Danielle Homer, Sophie Rock, Erica Hall, Rhiannon McKibben, Adelaide Mott.

February 9th   Dereham       1     Hethersett      1

Today the girls took part in a game which was simply fantastic to watch.

The game was well attended by supporters home and away which naturally always seem to lift the girls to perform at a higher level.

The playing surface was perfect, the two team hammered away at each other with some very good passing and both team created at least a good half dozen of goal scoring chances but the defending players for both teams in general came out on top.

Hethersett enjoyed some good early pressure and had we have taken our chances during this period might well have gone on to win the game. Dereham gradually worked their way back into the game.

Ella Stephenson broke the deadlock to score her first goal for the club, this however only served for Dereham to re-double their efforts and they eventually drew level through a shoot from distance which Emma did well to get her hands to unfortunately the pace of the ball was enough for it spin over her into the goal.

Tim who was refereeing the game let the girls know where there were five minutes left. During this final five minutes a long ball put Sophie Rock clear and her shot as she meet the goalkeeper comingout went just the wrong side of the left hand post.

In the last minute Dereham forced a corner which Emma bravely ran for and smothered.

A great game played with passion, controlled aggression and a lot of skill.

A day when every body involved with both teams should have been very proud

TEAM: Evans, Canning, Homer, Stephenson, Bunn, Bussey, McKibben, Cooke, Rock, Felknor-Edwards.

February 23rd       Hethersett    1   Norwich City    5


In a very keenly contested game Hethersett took an early lead which seemed to take the Norwich team a bit of time to come to terms with. However the Hethersett girls struggled to maintain the high tempo and Norwich worked their way back into the game after equalising they went on to take a 2 - 1 lead just before half time Sophie Cooke took a heavy knock during the course of this goal being scored and was not able to continue in the second half.

Danielle came on for Sophie and although Danielle game it every thing she had she was not the same physical match for her opponent. Norwich took a 3 - 1 lead at which point the other subs were given a run out. Norwich went on to score to further goals to win the game 5 - 1
Norwich were clearly the better team on the day overall but the score line does not reflect the effort and attitude the girls showed through out the game.

TEAM: Emma Bunn, Constance Canning, Beth Evans, Ella Stephenson, Teagan Felknor-Edwards, Sophie Cooke, Sophie Rock, Danielle Homer, Adelaide Mott, Erica Hall.

Teagan Felknor-Edwards

Another really good game between these two teams played in quite difficult conditions, the exchanges in the early minutes were fairly even however Dereham found their stride and raced into an early two goal lead.

The Hethersett girls battled hard and won extra time on the ball by half time the girls had pulled the score back level with two very well taken goals by the goal machine that is Sophie Rock.

After the turn round at half time Dereham had the advantage of the wind which they used better than the Hethersett girls had during the first half the constant threat from Dereham at corners paid off with one of the two goals which they added during the second period. All the subs for Hethersett were used every one of the players put in a great effort to get back into the game but it was not to be.

Special thanks to David Bunn for refereeing the match.

The girls put in a performance good enough to bag all three points which confirms they will finish the season in third spot the girls still have one final league game but I would have to admit over the league season the table does not lie and I would agree over the season we have finished in the right place.

Norwich have taken the points by a four goal margin each time we have played them and over the three games Dereham also proved they could get the better of out team.
So we have not reached the dizzy heights of last season but over all it has been a decent season with the belief that next season we should again be equipped for a further sustained challenge at the top of the league.

Today saw Teagan Felknor- Edwards play her final league game for the club as is the custom on these occasions she was captain for the day and made the most of her moment with a fourth minute goal and went on to put in a man of the match performance. Teagan is quite simply a very good all round player and will be missed when she returns home to America during the summer.

She is not quite finished with the club yet there is the small matter of the cup competition and a few summer events we hope to have her involved in.

Hethersett Athletic Girls Under-12s were triumphant when they won a six-a-side tournament at Horsford and conceded just one goal in seven matches. 

Hethersett started amongst the favourites, but late call offs meant they only had six players. Nevertheless they started strongly, beating Spixworth B 5-0 (Adelaide Mott 4, Constance Canning), Gorleston Rangers 2-0 (Canning and Ella Stephenson), Spixworth A 3-0 (Mott, Stephenson 2), Spixworth B 4-0 (Mott 3, Stephenson) before suffering a surprise 1-0 defeat at the hands of Gorleston Rangers. They got back to winning ways with a 3-0 victory over Spixworth A (Mott, Stephenson and Teagan Felknor-Edwards) and that was good enough to take them through to the final where they got revenge for their earlier defeat by beating Gorleston Rangers 2-0 with both goals coming from Adelaide Mott to take her tally for the competition to 11. 

Special mention should go to goalkeeper Emma Bunn who conceded just once and Rhiannon McKibben for her non stop energy. Hethersetts winning team was:  Emma Bunn, Constance Canning, Teagan Felknor-Edwards, Ella Stephenson, Rhiannon McKibben and Adelaide Mott.

The team made a number of tactical changes throughout the tournament and in the final Ella was deployed in defence in an attempt to snuff out the Gorleston attack. This had the desired effect with the first goal coming from an Adelaide special and the second from an own goal following Adelaide's banana corner.

Hethersett Girls Under-12s were looking for their second successive summer six a side tournament win when they  took part in the soccer on the sands event. They comfortably progressed through their group stage in second place thanks to a 4-1 win over Shrublands (Sophie Rock 3, Beth Evans), a 2-0 loss against Bohemians and a 2-1 win over Norwich (Sophie Rock 2). In the semi-finals they faced Brandon and, despite Brandon edging the first half, they came back to dominate the second half forcing extra time with the score goalless. There was controversy in the second period of extra-time. Sophie Rock shot from her own and the ball travelled into the net via a deflection off a defender's hand. The referee awarded a penalty, while the Hethersett players, management and support believed a goal should have been given. Sophie Rock stepped up to take the penalty, but unfortunately it was well saved and the game moved into the lottery of penalties. Emma Bunn proved a hero saving two and getting close to a third,  but Hethersett suffered defeat 4-3 in sudden death penalties. All the players deserve great credit for their effort and performance. They were Sophie Rock, Sophie Cooke, Emma, Teagan, Connie, Beth, Catherine and Rhinannon.
