Match reports from the weekend of 19th / 20th of November, compiled by Sean O’Kelly and written by Helen Clarke, Mandy Warrilow and Laura Latarche.

Men’s 1st Team

  • v. Didsbury Northern 1 (away)
  • Lost 5 – 2 (Goal scorers: Gary Johnson, Harry Swift)

The 1st team suffered defeat to unbeaten league leaders Didsbury in what was a bruising encounter. Didsbury had taken a 2-goal lead before Gary Johnson tapped in at the far post to reduce the arrears. Didsbury regained their 2-goal lead before a cracking finish from Harry Swift ensured an end-to-end final 20 minutes. Didsbury managed to find 2 more goals to win 5-2. Best wishes go out to Matt Ingram who suffered a broken jaw in this game. Next up is Newcastle University at the Lindum Sports Association (13:30).

 

Ladies 1st Team

  • v. Cambridge University 2 (home)
  • Drew 1 – 1 (Goal scorer: Sibyl Gassner)

The ladies remain in mid-table after earning a draw against the university youngsters. They face a long trip to Lowestoft at the weekend for a late morning start (11:30).

 

Men’s 2nd Team

  • v. Bradford 1 (home)
  • Lost 4 – 1 (Goal scorers: James Hillsmith)

The 2nds good run of form ended with a 4-1 defeat at home in a disappointing performance in comparison to recent matches. A short trip to Grimsby this weekend.

 

Ladies 2nd Team

  • v. Slazengers 2 (home), written by Helen Clarke
  • Won 3 – 1 (Goal scorers: Jo Siddans, Charlotte Simpson, Alex Carlin)

Following last week’s crushing defeat, we were ready to take control of this game. Slazenger won the toss and chose to take first push back. A quick self-pass saw their CF head straight to our goal, thankfully she was stopped in her tracks before reaching the D. After a shaky couple of minutes, we settled and soon found our rhythm. Before long the ball was worked through the midfield to the attack with confidence and Alex Carlin got the final touch to take an early lead. This gave us renewed confidence and a second goal from Jo Siddans soon followed. After half time we continued to dominate and were rewarded with a 3rd goal from Charlotte Simpson achieved with quick, accurate passing and excellent placement by Charlotte. Our only disappointment was an eleventh hour goal from a break away play that trickled in just minutes before the final whistle. This was a really encouraging game after last week with lots of positives to take forward.
Final score 3-1

Next weekend we play our 3rd Round EH Cup game away at Lichfield.

 

Men’s 3rd Team

  • v. City of York 4 (away)
  • Won 1 – 0 (Goal scorer: Andy Taylor)

A solitary goal for Andy Taylor slotting in at the second attempt sealed a tight victory in York.

 

Ladies 3rd Team

  • v. Sheffield Hallam 3 (away)
  • Lost 2 – 0

Lindum 3rds suffered their 2nd defeat in a row and fall a place to 4th.

 

Men’s 4th Team

  • v. Kingston-upon-Hull 2 (home)
  • Lost 3 – 1 (Goal scorer: Kristian Nelson)

The 4ths fell to 3rd bottom, just one point above the relegation zone.

 

Ladies 4th Team

  • v. Appleby Frodingham 1 (home) by Mandy Warrilow
  • Lost 2 – 1 (Goal scorer: Emma Wright)

Lindum lost the game after conceding two quick goals from Appleby Frodingham against the run of play.

Twenty minutes into the game and after considerable pressure on Appleby’s goal and good goal keeping by Appleby, Lindum were caught on the back foot and Appleby opened their account. 1-0. Appleby’s second goal came from a similar scenario and although Lindum made a goal line clearance it was not enough to stop the rebound hitting the back board. 2-0 to Appleby. Lindum continued to move forward but with caution not to leave the back line exposed. Half time come and the ladies grouped together to discuss how we could convert the many chances we had had in the first half. We decided on a ‘W’ formation up front and Emma Wright got the into the ‘D’ to score her first for the ladies 4s. 2-1. Lindum tried really hard to equalise but unfortunately run out of time and the game ended 2-1 to Appleby.

MOM was Emily Watson.

 

Men’s 5th Team

  • v. Sheffield University Bankers 6 (away)
  • Lost 11 – 0

 

  • v. Barnsley 1 (home), Sunday
  • Lost 5 – 3

 

Ladies 5th Team

v. Epworth 2 (away), written by Laura Latarche
Won 3 – 0 (Goal scorers: Orissa Sansoa-Twell, Sally Gregory, Laura Latarche)

After Epworth conceded the game as unable to raise a side, we agreed to play a friendly. We kept our cool in times of harsh decisions against us when play should have been stopped and corrected. Some good game play and introduction from new players meant that we still won 3-2.

 

Men’s 6th Team

  • v. Kingston-upon-Hull 3 (home)
  • Lost 3 – 1 (Goal scorer: Rhy Jones)

The 6ths remain in mid-table.

 

Under 18 Boys

(EH U18 Boys Plate – Round 1)

  • v. Boots U18s (home)
  • Won 7 – 1 (Goal scorers: Rob Johnstone (2), Cam Foster, George Johnstone, Barnaby Buckley, Angus Graham, Thomas Holm-Johansen)

Victory earned the U18s a home draw against Norwich U18s in Round 2.

 

Under 16 Girls

(EH U16 Girls Championship – Midlands League 4)

  • v. St Ives U16s (home) by Andrew Simpson
  • Won 3 -1 (Goal scorers: Gemma Barnsdale (2), Sophie Brittain)

The U16 girls braved bitter wind and rain to deliver a deserved victory in the England Hockey Girls U16 championship against St Ives on Sunday 20th November. St Ives opened the scoring with an early goal but Lindum drew level and then ahead after a period of sustained pressure, with goals from Gemma Barnsdale and Sophie Brittain giving Lindum a 2:1 lead at half time. Despite a spirited defence from St Ives in the second half, Sophie Brittain scored again to deliver a 3:1 victory for Lindum.  The girls welcomed a number of younger players into the squad for the match who played well and helped deliver a strong team performance. We look forward to meeting Leicester and Cambridge in the final matches in the group in February.
