This week saw Notts County under 10s travel to Bingham with more self belief and it soon shone as early efforts from Lucia Wardle and Phoebe-Wardle-Collins had the Bingham rear stretched. The Notts side camped in the oppositions half for most of the first period with Paris Greenham holding the middle of the park as if she owned it winning her challenges. The Bingham side struck first as a rare lapse let them in as keeper Chelsea Musgrove raced off her line only to see the ball slip pass her charge from goal. But Notts hit back quickly as from the kick off Phoebe danced through the Bingham side and tucked it away. The 2nd period saw the game open up a little with captain Elena Gale breaking down forwards and laying off great passes as did solid as ever Chloe Phillps who just seems to stop anything that comes her way with quality balls out to wide positions. Ellie Barrows dogged defending saw her release a pass the saw Notts score again with a double strike in the period by Phoebe. The next quarter was goalless with both side not having a real chance on goal but the girls decided that they was going to give it their all for the last 10mins as position changes gave Rosie Bradley a run up front and Lucia drop into the centre of the park but taking a ball in the face she left the field to get cleaned up only to return and carry on which earned her the player of the match. Notts upped the tempo as Paris dropped into defence and Elena moved up the field with great effect as link up work with Rosie and Phoebe saw Notts take the lead. As the seconds ticked down Ellie battled away to clear her lines as did Chloe clearing ever ball that crossed her path. Chelsea marshalled her goal in the closing period but a lucky strike gave Bingham a goal but our girls held firm for a cracking result. Great team effort girls.
