It was a cold morning — damp and miserable. Probably the last thing that the Haddenham U10 Girls wanted on a morning like this was a return match with a team that had beaten them by double figures the last time they met.
Berkhamsted Raiders FC looked very confident on their arrival to a soggy Haddenham Playing Fields, but they were not as prepared as they probably should have been. Berkhamsted expected an easy match again, but the Haddenham team were not going to be beaten easily!
And within the first five minutes of the game both teams could have scored two goals each but for outstanding goalkeeping, and from then on it was end-to-end stuff, a real crowd pleasing match.
At half time the score somehow remained 0 — 0 and although both teams would be satisfied with a brilliant match Haddenham were surely the more happy as they had worked so hard to keep the score level — a huge improvement on their last match.
The second half was all Berkhamsted after a few changes were made at half time, but the Haddenham Girls defended superbly, and even if the visitors did get through them they still had to beat the Haddenham Goalkeeper. Which, unfortunately, they did with only five minutes left of the match.
Haddenham heads dropped then and the visiting team played their way through the usual solid defence to score another goal straight after to seal victory at 2 — 0.
What an improvement on the last game against them, though — and the game before this one, against a strong Chesham United team. Haddenham U10 Girls proved that are ready to play football!

Training is every Saturday morning from 10 — 11.30am on Haddenham Playing Fields, Woodways HP17 8DS
