Wapping Ladies 1’s headed into the Saturday match with three defeats behind them and without luck on their side. Cambridge started the match strong but Wapping fought hard and managed to dominate possession. The defenders distributed the ball well allowing the midfield and forwards to show off their skills, putting the Cambridge back line under pressure, securing numerous short corners, but sadly no goal. However, just before half time Wapping took the lead with a goal from Ciara Murphy, striking it in from the P spot. 

The second half began with Wapping under pressure giving the ball away to Cambridge forcing the defence to tackle hard and Kate Branner to step up to stop them equalising. More short corners followed in the second half with Katelynn Rogs scoring taking Wapping to 2-0 up. Wapping started to build momentum and Lucy Todd managed to set Lou Song up to secure the third goal. It was a hard match, Wapping had over 10 short corners and Cambridge played hard until the end.


L2: Won  2-1 against Leighton Buzzard 1

Goals from Kate Silbermann and Emma Skinner

On Saturday the L2s travelled to Leighton Buzzard looking to secure another three points and maintain their strong start to the season.

After a half an hour delay to push back, Wapping were ready to get going and they burst out of the blocks putting the hosts under immediate pressure with the midfield trio of Fran, Henny and Sippy playing the ball in to the hard working forward line of Wardy, Babs and Jess.  Despite a number of strong early attacks, as the first half wore on Wapping's usual passing accuracy started to desert them allowing Leighton Buzzard back into the game.  Luckily Wapping's mean defence of Mooch, Skinner, Lucy, Georgia and Ruth stayed strong and batted away their attacks and helped launch a number of counter attacks back up the field. At half-time it was 0-0.

Following a half time "we can do better than this" chat from Coach Musto – Wapping set out to put things right.  The team started strongly with good goal scoring but unfortunately Bab’s goal was disallowed due to a foot foul, much to Wapping’s frustration. However, Wapping found a break through – Pascaline put in a trade mark tenacious tackle to win the ball back and moved it nicely around the midfield before reaching Jordan who got a strong shot away. The keep knocked it to Sippy who scooped it into the back of the net.  0-1 to Wapping.

The goal galvanised Wapping and they soon doubled their advantage.  The defence worked the ball up the right wing to Skinner who played a lovely one two with Sippy to put her clear through on goal and she managed to squeeze it past the out rushing keeper at a tight angle.  0-2 to Wapping and defender Skinner was back at the top of the L2s goal scoring chart!

However Leighton Buzzard were not going down without a fight and they launched a number of late attacks, winning a short corner.  The ever keen Sippy broke early which saw her sent to the halfway leaving only 3 defenders and Mooch behind the line.  Georgia did excellently to get out and block the initial shot but the ball bobbled around in the D and was eventually put away by the home side.  1-2 was the score.

The goal seemed to wake Wapping back up and in the last five minutes the team held the ball well to ensure that Leighton Buzzard did not get another sniff at goal. Wapping managed to see out the 1-2 victory!

M1: Won 5-1 against Cambridge City

Goals from Grant Aidoo Nash (3), Ollie Bull and Gaston Golstein

Wapping M1 headed into the Saturday’s match raring to go following on from the previous week’s defeat and with the hope of securing their first three points against a Cambridge based team.

The start of the match saw Wapping have plenty of chances with Ben and Ollie Bull both taking a shot on goal without success. The pressure started to build and it wasn’t until a goal from a corner from Gaston Golstein that Wapping took the lead.

The pressure continued with Cambridge finding it difficult to cut through the Wapping press and further chances fell to the likes of Will Cairns who missed an open goal from five yards out.

As the first half progressed goal keeper James Bowler was beaten by a drag flick which bounced several times before reaching the back of the goal.

The second half brought a change of fortunes. A reverse stick from Nat Crawley down the right hand side delivered a ball across to Ollie Bull, who slotted it away with aplomb. As the half progressed the Cambridge backline pushed up looking for a goal and this played into the hands of Grant Aidoo Nash who went on to score a hat trick.

M11: Won 2-1 against East London 8

Goals from Tom Scrase and Saad Ghauri


Men’s 11’s approached their first derby with East London  with anticipation. Wapping had a shaky start with East dominating possession and Wapping struggling to get the ball out from sixteens against very high pressure 16s from East London. About 20 minutes, after a fot in the D, Wapping conceded. East London scored from the penalty flick. 

A fumble from the keeper almost resulted in another goal against Wapping, however, the ever vigilant Karndeep Sidhu cleared the ball off the line. The remainder of the half saw good defensive work from Avinash Patel and Alex Jones but East London still won a few short corners, requiring strong saves from keeper Anthony Prigmore. 

After a savage half time pep talk from Aaran Fonda Wapping got back on the pitch. As the second half started Wapping kept more of the ball and started gaining confidence. More passing and moving the ball out wide early seemed a good strategy change compared to East London who were sticking with their vanilla attack-down-the-right. The friction was there as Tom Scrase was unluckily green carded for an aggressive tackle. 

Dylan Morgan and John Pinot de Moira were more coordinated in midfield distributing well to the wings. Aaran Fonda at left wing won a short corner for Wapping from a good set of passes. There was no conversion, however a plan to attack via left wing and win shorts emerged. Aaran won a couple of more short corners and on the third time, Tom Scrase got a clean hit into the bottom right to score a goal for Wapping. It was a well fought come back and the team was very confident. East London did keep the pressure on in the Wapping half, but the defence took 16s quickly to avoid East’s tight press.

Wapping equally put pressure on East London and got more shots onto goal, a scrappy goal scored by Saad Ghauri. The comeback was complete and Wapping managed to show their true talents.

There was still a good chunk of the second half left to play. Much like the rest of the game, East London had attacking chances which were defended away or channelled into a sixteen. Wapping also had a some chances including a sweet back post ball by Dylan Morgan, which was just out of reach of Saad Ghauri (no dive, typical Saad).
