Weekend Roundup (13th / 14th October)
City stay top of the Premier Division. Reserves win against Basford. Ladies beat Mansfield Town Development.
City bounced back in true style on Saturday. After last weekend’s first defeat of the season, the team hit eight goals against Attenborough to record an easy away win. At the same time, close rivals Awsworth Villa were only able to draw at home to Bingham Town. This meant that City were able to extend their lead at the top of the NSL Premier to two points.
Scorers for City were Ewan Hill (3) Calum Law (2) and Oliver Clarke (2). The other highlight of the day was some questionable footwear, proudly worn by George Caudwell!
It was also a great afternoon for our reserves on Saturday. A 1-0 home win over high-flying Basford Community moves City up to 4th in the NSL Division 1. Tom Tyler was the scorer of the only goal of the game.
The Ladies team rounded off a great weekend for our Senior teams with a 4-2 league win, away at Mansfield Town Development. Jessica Wright opened the scoring after 17 minutes. Caitlin Dickinson made it 2-0 after 32 minutes. A third city goal came courtesy of Hannah Stredder in the 63rd minutes and Wright made sure of victory in the 89th minute with her second goal of the game. A great result!
