On Saturday the Poole ladies took on Gillingham for a home match providing an exciting, high paced start to the season. Initially, play seemed to be of an even nature and Poole’s attacking players made many quick breaks showing they meant business. However, as the match progressed the Gillingham team proved their hunger to win scoring some rather unimpressive but successful shots at goal putting them in the lead. Nevertheless, Poole’s defensive players soldiered on with tight marking showing they would not give up easily. The Poole goal keeper performed well from constant pounding by the Gillingham strikers and assisted the defence throughout. The Poole team dealt well with the conceded short corners calmly and efficiently moving the ball back to the attacking end. Great team work was demonstrated by the midfield and attacking players who took advantage of interceptions and weak passes from their opponents. Notably there were some admirable attempts at goals from Poole’s strikers however the Gillingham goal keeper was on fine form and prevented their success. Overall, Poole fought well and put constant pressure on Gillingham throughout both halves utilising fast breaks and supportive plays to break down attempts on goal. Unfortunately the final seven nil loss for the Poole ladies doesn’t reflect the commendable level of play and amount of effort they put in but as their opponents are top of the league they should feel proud of their performance non the less.
