Club News - U12 Boys Tournament 16th October18 October 2016
Game : Under 12 Boys Tournament
Result : See below
Date : Oct 16, 2016
Pushback :
Venue : Away - Bishops Stortford and Maldon
Status : Tournament

Before I (Toby Wheadon) continue, just to let you know that Malachi has had the cut above his left eye “glued back together”. The brave, young man got a stick to his left eye within about 30 seconds of the first game starting.   I am sure all the Boys will join me in wishing you a speedy recovery and hope you feel better soon, Malachi. .

At Bishops Stortford: – Weather – Rain to begin with but cleared up after a while – so I was inaccurate about the need to bring a deck chair. We played 5 games (not 4 as I anticipated, another inaccuracy); Drew  0-0; then lost 0-1; 0-4; 0-2 and 0-2. However, this does not tell the full story. After losing Malachi early on, we defended really well and - each game - we were close to scoring more than a few times.

John Bailey – grazed elbow diving for a shot at goal, excellent passing inter-play.

Malachi Knowles – hors de combat !

Jamie Marland – excellent in goal, great saves, closed down attacks where he could.

Sami Marouane – solid in defence – several block tackles that I really didn’t think he would make, he made.

Jamie Mathews – learned a huge amount in his first run out for Chelmsford, well done.

Jamie Morley – played a solid role in defence, well done. I was not confused by a three Jamie defensive grouping !

Toby Mountford – played in the forward positions and looked to take the ball forward, good passing.

Tom Steingold – great midfield action, tremendously effective dribbling with a lay off pass to finish many times.

Liam Walsh – really solid in defence, good passing and great running when supporting attacks. Did not give up chasing.

Ben Wheadon – top skills as a forward, good lay off passes and tackling back. He is rather too happy that he nutmegged OL’s Toby !

Thank you to Andy for running the squad.

At Maldon (report from Dan Ebdon): “ … a very successful morning for the boys we had come along. I think all the boys really enjoyed the games and the tournament and stayed really well engaged and listened throughout.

Maldon 1-0 Chelmsford - Home advantage and a Chelmsford team still waking up in what was a very close encounter. Maldon did look much better in later games so maybe we kept them at bay!

Chelmsford 0-0 Bish Stort - A really keenly fought and tight game between two really well balanced sides

Chelmsford 0-0 Blue Hornets (B) - We were unable to close out the game and get what would have been a winning goal despite a series of short corners and long periods camped in opposition territory

Extra bonus fixture Blue Hornets (A) 4-0 Chelmsford - One too many. A fixture too far for us against a much better team with tired legs

We had a different goalkeeper for each game (Jack Wright, Jake Rickett, Matthew Howard and Joshua Ebdon).

Tom Beales - played most of his game time up front/midfield.

Austin Bird - played upfront and came so close to scoring.

Joshua Ebdon - Played mostly in defence and midfield.

William Francis - mostly attacking with a good touch and some lovely passing. 

James Galpin - lovely strong passing 

Matthew Howard - played mostly defensively

Jake Rickett - mostly attacking with good positioning and looking to make passes and be available

Nathan Simms - Solid in defence

James Statham - new to the group and will benefit from more game time

Jack Wright - As always plenty of energy and attacking the ball.”

I should like to put on record how very grateful I am that Dan, Kelly and Adam have been taking the Boys to Maldon

Match Reports - Ladies' 1st XI v Sevenoaks 118 October 2016
Game : Ladies' 1st XI v Sevenoaks 1
Result : 1 - 6
Date : Oct 15, 2016
Pushback : 14:00
Venue : Home - Water
Status : EHL East

Chelmsford welcomed a strong Sevenoaks side to Chelmer Park, with coach David Condon encouraging the team to continue to display their Chelmsford spirit, work rate & free flowing hockey.

Sevenoaks started strongly, with Jess Denniff opening the scoring for the away side in the first few minutes. Chelmsford looked to regain possession with some excellent midfield & forward work led by Tori Clark & Kate Taylor. However, an experienced Sevenoaks side continued to rally, and twice took advantage to take the score to 3-0 by the half-time whistle.

Committed forward running from Collette Ager & Kate Robinson allowed Chelmsford to compress and pressure the game going in to the second half. Patient outletting play from Kate Maxey & Philli Went led to periods of possession and dynamic attacking play through Georgia Davies & Antonia Kitchener. However, Sevenoaks continued to create problems for Chelmsford & were rewarded with 3 further open-play goals.

Defender Molly Redgrove calmly slotted home a short corner opportunity for Chelmsford in the dying minutes to bring the final score to 6-1.

Chelmsford are away at Southgate next Saturday, and then welcome Hampstead & Westminster to Chelmer Park in the EH cup on Sunday 23rd, 2pm start – do come along & support!!
