February 15th                  Hethersett       5     Chelmsford    1

Hethersett began their defence of the League Cup trophy at Thorpe High School in a fixture that was reversed due to the weather. Both sides started strongly as the perfect playing surface suited a quick passing game, and both defences were kept on their toes throughout. Hethersett began to take control of the game and tool the lead midway through the first half as fantastic link up play from Emma Mulley and Jenna Thurtle set Emily Coates free to round the goalkeeper and tap into an empty net. Chelmsford responded well and created several openings that needed Kayleigh Ellwood to be sharp in averting danger. Hethersett were holding their own, Mel Moore and Zoe Klimcke continued their fine form at the back to restrict any clear cut chances, and Hethersett continued to push forward with Mulley particularly in fine form and was desperately unlucky not to double the lead when a sharp turn and volley from the edge of the box whistled past the top corner. Hethersett were eventually able to capitalise as Coates was again set free to score an identical second 10 minutes before the break.

After half-time Hethersett took contol of the midfield with and Coates completed her hat-trick with a fantastic volley outside the box. Chelmsford were still denied many clear opportunities as the game went on, and with 25 minutes to go Coates played in Hazel Shepherd who finished well to score her second of the season. Hethersett continued the policy of promoting youth players by giving a debut to Lauren Matthews in place of Coates. She settled in quickly and showed great potential, which culminated in setting up Hethersett's 5th goal for Kate Ellis. Chelmsford continued to battle and play good football, and 5 minutes from time scored a deserved goal from an outstanding free kick that flew into the top corner from 25 yards giving Ellwood no chance.

Hethersett played some fantastic football on the day and every individually worked extremely hard to deny Chelmsford any time or space. The game was played in great spirit and it was particularly pleasing to have a great turn out from the under 16 and 13 teams to watch and support.

February 22nd                     Hethersett       1    Woodbridge    0

The game started as a tight, scrappy affair with both sides cancelling each other out. Hethersett began to take control of the game and were unlucky not to take an early lead when Kate Ellis hit the post with a sharp left footed effort.

The pressure eventually paid off midway through the first half after excellent work from Ellis on the right produced a dangerous cross that was only half cleared, the ball fell to Emma Mulley who still had a lot of work to do at a tight angle but she managed to get a shot away which hit the bar and fell nicely for Emily Coates to tap in her 24th goal of the season.

 Hethersett continued to dominate and could have gone further ahead when the excellent Jenna Thurtle, playing in an unfamiliar central role, was played through one on one but the Woodbridge goalkeeper made an excellent save to deny her. Hethersett were again solid at the back with Mel Moore impressing particularly to deny any real chances and Kayleigh Ellwood dealt comfortably with the long range efforts Woodbridge had. An untidy first half ended 1-0.

The second half began in similar fashion, Woodbridge were working hard to deny Hethersett any space to play their football and the two sides were both unwilling to give an inch. The visitors began to grow in confidence and started to work some opportunities but Ellwood was constantly at hand to sweep up and claim any crosses that came into her box. Lauren Matthews came on to replace Ellis and the fresh legs immediately troubled Woodbridge as the youngster produced some good runs to shift the balance of play back in Hethersett's favour. Another goal would have killed the game off but Mulley and Coates were just unable to find the right final ball, and when it did come the game was stopped due to an injury. Hethersett were rarely troubled until late in the game when rare hesitation from Moore and Ellwood let in the Woodbridge striker but Ellwood made amends with a fantastic point blank save to ensure another clean sheet.

A very hard fought game finished 1-0, with Emma Mulley awarded player of the match by the visitors for another fantastic performance as she continues to grow into football at this level. Woodbridge deserve credit for a battling performance in a game played in great spirit.

March 1st                                Hethersett         3    Kettering     1

Hethersett began the match strongly and put Kettering under early pressure. This paid off after 10 minutes when a long throw from Mel Moore was touched on and found Hazel Shepherd to fire in from close range. Hethersett were unable to take control of the game from this point with some wasteful passing and rushed decisions giving possession away often and allowing Kettering to cause problems with their direct style. Five minutes before half time almost saw the visitors equalise after a mistake in the Hethersett defence put the winger clear, she drew Kayleigh Ellwood out at an angle before squaring the ball but Ellwood managed to recover in time to make a great save.

The second half saw a massive improvement for Hethersett as they started to control the game and play relaxed football, although they suffered a blow 10 minutes in when the inspirational Mel Moore was forced to come off with a recurrence of a troubling knee injury. Nikki Wigg returned from her own injury troubles in midfield and Hannah Dugdale dropped back to replace Moore. The refreshed home side began to cause Kettering problems as Lisa Ferdani and Kate Ellis were providing good early service from wide areas. This paid off midway through the second half as Ferdani delivered an early ball to the near post for Emma Mulley, the defender got there first but was under too much pressure from Mulley and could only blast the ball into the top corner. Hethersett continued to press with Leanne Symonds and Adele McCrory looking dangerous from full back, and one Symonds run saw her beat 3 defenders to reach the edge of the box but a last ditch challenge prevented her from capping it with a goal. The lead was increased when Emily Coates picked up the ball 25 yards out and hit an audacious volley which took a slight deflection but only helped in taking it over the keeper into the roof of the net. Kettering were still pressing throughout but Dugdale and Klimcke were solid at the back and Ellwood continued her fine form with another great save to deny any way back. New signing Amy Batch came on with 20 minutes left to make her senior debut for the club she represented 71 times at youth level and fitted straight into the midfield showing bundles of energy to break down any Kettering attacks. The visitors continued to play their football and battled to the end, being rewarded with a scrappy consolation goal minutes from time to leave the final score Hethersett 3 Kettering 1.

March 15th         Dagenham and Redbridge     0      Hethersett    2

Hethersett made their way into the semi-finals of the League Cup with a fine 2-0 win against league leaders Dagenham.

Hethersett travelled to the Glynn Hopkins stadium wary of the fact that they were up against a strong Dagenham and Redbridge side unbeaten in the league this season, but full of hope that they could cause an upset. Jodie Rettie returned to the side to partner Zoe Klimcke in defence, while Nikki Wigg returned to the centre of midfield replacing Jenna Thurtle (flu) as Kayleigh Ellwood came back in goal. The match was started at a frantic pace as both sides looked to dominate, Dagenham were used to the immaculate surface and played some nice football but were not allowed an inch as Hethersett closed down every inch of space. It was Athletic who created the best of the early chances, with a Lisa Ferdani free kick tipped on to the cross bar by the keeper. The resulting free kick was met by a spectacular over head kick from Wigg that crashed off the bar and Klimcke could only head the rebound over the bar. The home side responded well and fine work from the leagues top scorer Sara Sinclair created a chance that cannoned off the post before being cleared. The game was becoming heated as both sides fought for every ball, with strong challenges from Rettie provoking reactions, and one clash between Emily Coates and a Dagenham defender ended in a booking for the home team. Hethersett continued to frustrate the home side with Coates dropping into a deeper role to help Wigg and Shepherd with Emma Mulley putting in a huge shift alone up front, not intimidated in the slightest by the physical presence she faced. The first half ended worryingly for Hethersett with Coates creating room for a shot but a slightly mistimed challenge left her in a heap clutching her ankle. After 5 minutes treatment she was carried off with the half time break approaching at 0-0.

Determined not to be beaten, Coates returned to the field for the second half and Hethersett took the game to the home side. They were rewarded 10 minutes in when a short corner from Ferdani was returned to her by Adele McCrory, Ferdani then hammered the ball across the box into the far top corner to give Hethersett a lead that was celebrated by every single player. Dagenham tried to get back into the game but were denied any chances by a resolute defence, and after another 8 minutes Hethersett increased their lead. Wigg played a measured through ball for Coates who beat the keeper to it and was sent tumbling just inside the box. Coates picked herself up to smash in the penalty and double the lead. Hethersett made sure that complacency didnt set in with more hard work from Coates and the exceptional Mulley. Kate Ellis and Leanne Symonds successfully kept the home sides threat at bay as Sinclair was closed down every time she got near the ball, a move which saw her drift over to the other side only to be kept even quieter by McCrory. With 25 minutes to go Hannah Dugdale was brought on to replace the shattered Wigg and immediately took up her place along side Shepherd with some big tackles to help close out the game, As tiredness set in, tempers again began to fray and were not controlled very well by the referee, particularly 10 minutes from time when Mulley chased a long ball into the corner, beating the keeper to it only to be sent flying by a disgraceful challenge which she reacted to and was immediately surrounded by 5 Dagenham players. Mulley was dragged away by her team mates, as was Rettie who was looking to stick up for the 16 year old. Eventually the fuss died down with just a yellow card shown to the fortunate goalkeeper, and Mulley lucky to escape unpunished. Dagenham continued to push for a way back into the game but Hethersett were determined not to give in and defended incredibly well with Ellwood commanding her box to collect any crosses and through balls. As the game went towards 90 minutes the home side were limited to efforts from distance which Ellwood dealt with calmly.

Eventually the referee called time on an exhilarating game that was fought for by both sides to the end. Hethersett showed incredible character, passion and a determination to fight for each other, at times quite literally, across the whole team, combined with flashes of real quality to get a 2-0 win they fully deserved on the day and set up a semi final at home to Woodbridge Town on April 12th.

April  5th                  Dagenham and Redbridge     3    Hethersett    2

Hethersett travelled to league leaders Dagenham & Redbridge with 11 players unavailable, but hopeful after the recent semi-final victory. Athletic began the game brightly and took a deserved early lead in some style. A dangerous Jenna Thurtle corner was only half cleared and fell to Leanne Symonds on the corner of the penalty area who rifled in a first time volley across the keeper into the far corner. This sparked the home side into life and they pushed forward to test Hethersett's defence, but only found Kayleigh Ellwood in fine form. 20 minutes into the first half Dagenham scored a deserved equaliser with a cross field ball splitting Hethersett's defence and finding the leagues top scorer Sara Sinclair who gave Ellwood no chance. The first half continued to be hard fought and very even with both sides creating opportunities. Ellwood was determined not to beaten in the Hethersett goal and made 2 more fine saves to deny the home side. Half time cam with the score 1-1.

The second half began badly for Hethersett as top scorer Emily Coates was sent through one on one with the keeper, Coates touched the ball past her only to be sent flying and left in agony on the ground. After almost 10 minutes treatment she was carried off and unable to continue which left Athletic to play out the game with 10 players. The game was restarted with a penalty awarded for the foul which Jenna Thurtle stepped up to take, only to see her poweful effort crash back off the bar. The home side took this as a warning and upped their game again, and began to take charge of the game with some lovey football and Hethersett's 10 players putting in a huge effort to keep them at bay. with 15 minutes to go it began to look as though Hethersett's efforts would be rewarded until an attempted shot from an angle was scuffed and fell to the unmarked Sinclair to put Dagenham ahead. The lead was increased minutes later with a fine finish over the advancing Ellwood. To Hethersetts credit they refused to throw in the towel and were rewarded 2 minutes from time, Tammy Graves after working alone up front tirelessly held the ball up for Lisa Ferdani who hit a spectacular volley from 30 yards straight into the top corner. It was a goal worthy of winning any game, but instead served as a well deserved consolation for the effort the girls had put into the game against all the odds. A hard fought and pulsating game finished 3-2 to a Dagenham side who look certain to go on and win the league leaving Athletic to battle it out for second place.

April 12th                    Hethersett               2     Woodbridge      1

Hethersett reached the final of the League Cup but not before a few scares at Easton College. Hethersett opened very brightly and were deservedly two goals up after 25 minutes with Emily Coates forcing her way through to open the scoring after 15 minutes and 10 minutes later Lisa Ferdani scored direct from a corner. Woodbridge pulled a goal back five minutes later. The second half was an anti climax with Hethersett trapped in their own half for long periods. In the end they held on despite almost 10 minutes of stoppage time due to a serious injury to a Woodbridge player. In the final Hethersett will play Cambridge University at Soham on May 10th.

May 10th            Cambridge University    1     Hethersett    2

Hethersett retained the Eastern Region Women's League Cup with a narrow victory over Cambridge University at Soham. The match was a triumph for the club which has re-built its team after losing a number of key players at the start of the season.

Cambridge looked the more likely to score early on and took the lead after 15 minutes. Hethersett tried desperately to get back into the game and equalised after 26 minutes as Emily Coates burst through. The winning goal came on the stroke of half-time when a Coates effort was mis-handled over the line by the Cambridge 'keeper. The second half was goalless.
