Four out of four

This week's round-up from the West Ham Ladies' camp...

Under 17s

The under 17s played away to Tigers FC and continued their good start to the season with another win; the Hammers running out 7-2 victors.

Under 15s

The under 15s opened their campaign with a 9-1 thumping of FC Clacton at the Hammers' new home ground at May & Bakers, Dagenham.

The 15s started off at a slow pace with the girls expecting the goals to flow just as they did in their first league fixture last Sunday, but some good defensive work from Clacton ensured the West Ham girls came in at half time only 2-1 in front.

A little more application in the second half saw Hannah Humphreys get into her stride and she quickly buried a double hat-trick. Grace Hill joined in with an equally impressive three from good team play, with West Ham's defence standing firm to deny Clacton any further chances.

Under 13s

The Under 13s played their first home fixture against FC Clacton and having previously met in pre season they knew what to expect from this capable side.

The game started with West Ham attacking from the off but a game Clacton side kept everyone behind the ball, making progress towards the goal hard work for the Hammers strike force. But with half time rapidly approaching substitute Mia Seeley opened the scoring with a finely struck low shot that beat the capable 'keeper.

The second half, as with the previous week, finally saw West Ham's relentless pressure start to pay dividends. With Sophie Kelly scoring a long-range shot and goals from Poppy Binding and Kelly Whealthall, the Hammers found themselves with a four-goal lead.

To their credit, Clacton kept on pushing forward (often by way of counter attack) but the game was going West Ham's way and four more goals - another from Poppy Binding , two more from Kelly Whealthall and a second by Mia Seeley - gave West Ham an 8-0 win.

Under 11s

After an excellent performance last weekend, The Under 11s travelled to Tigers FC for their second league game of the season. On a slow pitch, the girls forced the pace from the opening whistle and chances were soon being created. Eventually, some of those chances started to result in goals with some nice composed finishes.

Having secured a comfortable half time lead the girls stepped it up after the break and played some good football. Whilst not quite reaching the heights of the previous week, this was still a strong performance that the girls will gain confidence from.

The opposition defended bravely for the entire game but could not prevent a final score of 9-1 to West Ham; goalscorers on the day were Lauren Hart (3), Jada Sealy (2), Lucy Brewster (2), Lily Brewster and Abigale Ridgway.
