MAIDENHEAD 0-8 ARGYLE LADIES

Oct 31, 2016   //   by Jo Yorke   //   Articles, Uncategorized  //  Comments Off

A DEVASTATING spell of eight goals in just 32 minutes gave Argyle Ladies a huge win over Maidenhead United on the weekend.

To their credit, the home side held on for almost an hour before the avalanche begun and from there, the Pilgrims were exhilarating in attack.

Ezme Wells and Natasha Knapman both bagged a brace, and there were further goals from Katie Middleton, Amber Pollock, Becky Atkins and an OG from the beleaguered hosts.

Manager Dave Leonard concluded: “This was a scintilating display and just what we needed after last week’s performance. What impressd me was that they could have sat back on their laurels but they pushed on relentlessly to score more goals.”

A happy Green weekend was complete with the reserves recording an equally emphatic victory, beating Lakeside Ladies 13-2.

GIRLS ADC TOURNAMENT

Oct 28, 2016   //   by Jo Yorke   //   Articles, Uncategorized  //  Comments Off

Girls ADCA DEBUT outing for the Plymouth Argyle Advanced Development Centre (ADC) this season and it was a fantastic day for everyone.

Swindon Town Football Club hosted the event, with teams from Argyle, Northampton Town and Swindon Town competing across a range of age groups.

Full Photo Album

The under 10s played a total of four games and finished the day undefeated, beating Swindon 2-1 and 2-0, the Northampton results were 5-0 and 5-1 in our favour. The football they played was remarkable, showing true quality at a young age.

It was a similar story for the under 12s, playing two games and beating Northampton 3-1 and Swindon 4-0. Watching this team was brilliant, with the young players showing great skill on the ball and impressive team work in creating the goals.

The under 14 girls started the day with a great attitude and passion for the game, winning their first match 3-1 against Northampton with some fluid passing combinations. Their second game showed true resilience from the girls, as they all worked their hardest and continued to try and play the Argyle way. Credit to Swindon, however, who played some brilliant football and took the three points.

The under 16s had a total of three games, Northampton was first and our girls in Green were outstanding in a 5-0 victory. Their final two games were against Swindon and, similar to the under 14s, the girls never gave up, testing their conception of teamwork and toughness. The games ended 3-0 and 2-0 losses, but the girls conducted themselves admirably, showing true sportsmanship and respect towards the opposition. 

The Plymouth Argyle Girls ADC runs under the Premier League Girls Football Programme, which is delivered by around 90 clubs within England and its aim is to increase the opportunities for women and girls to develop skills and confidence, and progress within the pathway as a player, coach or official.

ARGYLE 1-1 QPR

Oct 20, 2016   //   by Jo Yorke   //   Articles, Uncategorized  //  Comments Off

A STORY of missed chances for Argyle in their latest round of Education League fixtures, as our visitors from QPR escaped with a draw.

The game was played at Seale Hayne and after an even start, the Pilgrims started to play some excellent expansive football, only for QPR to hit us on the break and lead at half-time.

The second-half was one-way traffic and yet the visiting goal continued to lead a charmed life until a dipping effort from Fletcher Cook found the corner of the net for a point, but it could have been a lot more.

ARGYLE LADIES 2-4 LUTON TOWN

Oct 17, 2016   //   by Jo Yorke   //   Articles, Uncategorized  //  Comments Off

A DISAPPOINTING performance saw Argyle Ladies dumped out of the Premier League Plate competition at the hands of Luton Town.

A bright start yielded chances for Kayleigh Brown and Becky Atkins before a clever overhead from Natasha Knapman was well saved, as the Pilgrims piled on the pressure.

Luton, however, responded with a suckerpunch, as Nicole Henman headed the visitors in front but Argyle kept piling forward with attacking intent.

The game then changed with a straight red card for Kayley Lane following an incident off the ball, leaving Argyle with a player down for the entire second period.

Despite that setback, Tori Marks equalized with a goal on her debut, rifling home on 62 minutes. The Pilgrims were still moving forward when Luton struck again on the break and some sloppy defending gifted the visitors a 3-1 lead.

Teenager Jodie Bellinger completed her hat-trick to seal the win for Luton and Kayleigh Brown’s late goal was scant consolation.

Manager Dave Leonard said: “This result came at the right time, unfortunately we were reactive and not proactive. I didn't have a go at the players after the match but what I did tell them will not be made public, let us just say we were not good enough.”
