Last season our U16 side had a successful season, winning the Winchester & District Leagues and League Cup and coming runners up in the Surrey FA Cup to Crystal Palace Academy. Many of them also appeared for Hampshire U16 over the season. They are now playing senior football and have made debuts in all three sides, Firsts, Reserves and Development.
Forwards Kia Anteney and Jennifer King both scored goals in their debut league games, Anteney against Poole Town and King with her hat-trick this weekend against Wokingham & Embrook. In midfield, Lily Shergill, Tia Hooper, Imogen Twigt and Holly Shepherd have moved up, as have Manisha Kaur, Sian Bradbeer and Emily Gook in defence.
Grace Jenman, who played on the wing last year, has now consolidated her place in goal (where she played for Hampshire) and made her first appearance this weekend for Reserves. Last season's keeper, Jaime Rowlands has recently transferred to Portsmouth Ladies.
