CHANGES AFOOT FOR BOROUGH WOMEN

 

 

 

Haringey Borough Women start the New Year under new Management with STEVE BROWNE taking over the reins from Natalie Silva-Knight who, as Player-Manager in tandem with Team Administrator Karla Parker , has guided the Club through a rather difficult two and a half seasons during which the dressing room ambience has not always been one of  “sweetness and light”;  the Club greatly appreciates her perseverance and is  pleased that she will still be with us in a playing capacity.

 

 

 

Steve has for many seasons run the highly successful Youth League Club   S & T ACADEMY (the “T” stands for Troy Townsend) and has been coaching Borough Women as well for two months.    Many of  the S & T girls on reaching 16 have dual signed for Borough to move up into Adult football and seven of them appeared in Borough’s last match – a vital away win at the League’s bottom Club.         

 

For the remainder of this season pulling away from the relegation spots is the prime target, perhaps with a League Cup run by way of light relief, and then to “hit the ground running” to propel the Club onwards and upwards from the start of next season in pursuit of the promotion spot which would see Borough enter the Women’s Premier League.  Steve's  endeavours will be enhanced  by the efficiency of  Karla with her understanding of the Club ethos after 11 years as player and Administrator and on the coaching front  by Mickey Leslie.who has extensive previous experience at Senior  level and by Kendal Campbell who has been with the Club in that capacity for two seasons.

 

Any player (minimum age 16) who would like to "train and trial" with the Club should contact Karla by e-mail at haringeyboroughwfc@gmail.com

BOROUGH WOMEN OFF TO ABU DHABI

Borough Women are delighted to have been invited to be one of six teams to participate in a 5 a side Womens Tournament in Abu Dhabi from 26th to 31st May.     Borough will be competing in 40 minute games on a “round robin” basis against two sides from the United Arab Emirates and one each from Jordan, Hungary and Uzbekistan.

The Tournament is being organised by the Abu Dhabi Sports Council and the United Arab Emirates FA Womens Committee. The teams will be accommodated at the Armed Forces Officers Club and Hotel in Abu Dhabi and all matches will be played on a pitch within its grounds.

 Borough have been invited as winners of the “Unity Cup” Womens 5 a side Tournaments in London in both 2010 and 2011. The “Unity Cup” is an annual event started in 2007 as a commemoration of the 7/7 London bombings and brings together London's communities, social and corporate organisations and UK Government Departments.  The core aim is to encourage the crossing of ethnic and religious barriers and to unite against terrorism, extremism and Islamophobia by bringing together young people of all religious, ethnic and social backgrounds through football to create a better world through the global appeal of the game.  FOR A REPORT ON THE TRIP & PHOTOS USE LINK TO THE SEPARATE WOMENS TEAM WEBSITE

2011 in RETROSPECT

The first half of the year is best forgotten as we struggled to compete in the Premier Division with a team lacking the necessary experience and were relegated but after a dismal start to this season the side has gone from strength to strength and eight consecutive League games have been won making promotion a realistic target.

26 Competitive games were played (15 this season, 11 last)

11 were won (10 this season 1 last);   1 was drawn (this season); 14 were lost (4this season 10 last)

We scored 43 goals (39 this season 4 last) and conceded 55 (20 this season 35 last)

We kept 5 clean sheets – all this season

We failed to score on11 occasions (2 this season 9 last)

6 goals is our highest individual score – at East Thurrock United in the League this season

6 goals is the most we  conceded – to Arlesey Town at home in the League last season

PLAYERS PLAYER OF THE SEASON   -     Nadine FRANKLIN

TOP GOAL SCORER                         -     Lekesha JAMES

 

 LEAGUE CONSTITUTION ANNOUNCED FOR 2011/12

(11/3/11) A BITTERLY UPSETTING INCIDENT 

 

On Friday March 11th the Team held what was an enjoyable “Quiz Evening” at the Clubhouse.   Sadly it was marred through the theft of a “Blackberry” (not insured) belonging to Patu.     She had used it during the evening and upon noticing it to be missing at closing time the number was rung but it had already been turned off.

 

It leaves a particularly nasty taste in the mouth as no-one except players was present.

 

Maybe there is a reader of this article deservedly suffering pangs of shame and guilt ?   If so partial redemption might be achieved if the phone were to be securely packed in bubblewrap and posted to me anonymously addressed as follows:-

(10/3/11) HARINGEY BOROUGH WOMEN are pleased to take this opportunity to put on record THREE BIG THANKYOUs

 

To Sarah’s uncle - Film Director, LEE CLEARY - who kindly funded our smart new kit

 

To Miss Juney Brown, who generously donated a very welcome £400 which has enabled us to keep our subscription costs as low as possible in these ever more difficult economic times and we have Nadine to thank for this introduction

 

To  SAINSBURY’sstore in Tottenham for the

                                   support given to their local team

 

(6  Jan 2011) LEAGUE CUP DRAW PUBLISHED

The draw for the 2nd Round of the League Cup has given Borough an away game against Premier Division High-flyers BARKING. Match will be played at Mayesbrook Park on 23rd January.

 

(21 Nov 2010)   INJURY CRISIS DEEPENS

With 4 regular players (Joselina, Sarah, Zoe, Marianne) who would be automatic starters suffering from injuries which will keep them out of action for some time yet we have been forced to throw inexperienced players “in at the deep-end”. Obviously, Regional Premier Division Football is not the right forum in which such players should cut their teeth.   But circumstances have left us no option in our desperate struggle to fulfil fixtures and full credit to the few Senior players still turning out week after week (and some of them are carrying less serious injuries too) as well as the “learners” who will surely eventually benefit from their “present baptism of fire”.   So although we suffered our worst ever defeat at the hands of Peterborough today, all involved can hold their heads up high for a performance plainly against hopeless odds – and the neutral referee was rightly high in his praise for the way we kept going sportingly right to the end.

MIXED FORTUNES IN CUP GAMES

Three consecutive weeks of Cup games have brought 1 win and 2 defeats.   On 10th October Borough recovered from 0-2 and 2-3 deficits to force a penalty shoot out after extra time at Wandgas in the WFA Cup game postponed from the previous week and came through that by 4-2.     But they could not find the net in the 2 following weeks and exited the London County Cup to KIKK United at Regents Park by 4-0 on 17th followed by a 2-0 defeat by Mauritius Sports Association at the Douglas Eyre Centre on 24th to end this seasons WFA Cup campaign. In between they played a midweek Eastern Region League match at home to Barking and went down 0-3 so completing 270 minutes of football without a goal

FA WOMEN's CUP DRAW ANNOUNCED

In the First Qualifying Round on 3rd October, Borough will meet WANDGAS of the London & South Eastern Regional League – the team they defeated at the same stage last season but this time Borough are the away team.   Success would see them visiting MSA Ladies of the top Division of the Greater London League on 24th October

 

COUNTY CUP DRAW ANNOUNCED

 

The Draw for the London Senior Womens Cup has given Borough a First Round tie away to K.I.K.K UNITED FC on 17th October.  Their opponents were Champions of the Greater London League last season and thus promoted into the London & South East Regional League.    Success would see either TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR or TOWER HAMLETS visiting Coles Park in the 2nd Round in January.         

 

LEAGUE FIXTURES ANNOUNCED

 

The season opens on Sunday 15th August with a visit to Kettering Town followed by home fixtures on the next 3 Sundays against Stevenage Borough, Brentwood Town and Hethersett Athletic.     The full seasons League fixtures are now shown in the "Fixtures & Results" option.   Before the League programme there are friendly matches at Coles Park on 25th July, 1st and 8th August against   Hutton,  a Luton Town XI and Panthers FC.  

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

TWO SMALL SIDED TROPHIES ALREADY IN THE BAG

 

Haringey Borough Ladies through to the finals of the UNITY Cup to be played on Saturday 10 July 10th  -   AND ANOTHER TROPHY WAS THEN  DULY SECURED -the victorious squad being   Cherkish YOUNG,  Lekesha JAMES,  Maria GOMES,  Karla PARKER,  Annika QUARTEY,  Tanya BEVERLEY (see main NEWS page for fuller details) 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Haringey Ladies WIN the Diversity Cup in our 1st summer tournament

 on Saturday 5 June 2010  (see main NEWS page for fuller details)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

THE WOMENS TEAM NOW HAS ITS OWN SEPARATE WEBSITE AND FACEBOOK PAGE BOTH OF WHICH CAN BE ACCESSED VIA THE "LINKS" PAGE OF THIS WEBSITE

 

TEAM APPOINTMENTS FOR 2010/11

MARK TWEED who coached and managed the team for the last 5 games of the season will be the TEAM MANAGER/COACH for 2010/11.   Mark is a level 3 referee as well as holding Coaching qualifications so we will be hoping for an improvement in our not always perfect disciplinary record !

KARLA PARKER will be the TEAM ADMINISTRATOR - a new title which recognises the role which she has in effect filled very diligently for some considerable time

Preparations for next season start on 13th July and details can be obtained by clicking on the "Trials and Training" item in the Menu and then selecting the Womens Team option.

 

DISAPPOINTING END TO SEASON 

- BUT SOME WELL DESREVED AWARDS

 

After a fine first half of the season which had seen Borough looking highly likely to achieve promotion as well as putting together fine Cup runs a lack of committment and personality problems set in and cost the Club dear with mid-table  6th place being the outcome

 

Following the final match of the season on 30th May, a 4-1 home win over Cambridge University, the Annual Presentation of Awards took place in the Club House.

Top Scorer was                                AISHAH BOLAJI (21)

Most Improved Player                      ZOE BRITTON

Players Player of the Season             JOSELINA FERREIRA

There having been 3 Managers at various times in the season the usual award of a “Managers Player of the Season” was impractical but a special vote of thanks was recorded in favour of KARLA PARKER without whose perseverance in the aggravating task of administering the team in  a very dark period for the squad towards the end of the season the team might not have survived.

 

 

BOROUGH REACH LEAGUE CUP QUARTER FINAL

A much changed side returned from Cambridge University's superb "Fenners" facility on 22nd November having come back from being 2 down to book their place in the Quarter Finals with a 3-2 win.   The draw has not yet been made.   Full report on "FIXTURES & RESULTS" page

 

BOROUGH MOVE TO 2nd IN TABLE

 

A hard fought win at Peterborough on 15th November lifts Borough into 2nd place in the Premier Division table.  Only defeated Peterborough are now above by 3 points but we have 5 games in hand on them.    See "Fixtures & Results"  page for full details

 

BOROUGH IN 2nd ROUND PROPER OF THE WFA CUP

 

 BOROUGH WOMEN won the fourth match of their WFA Cup campaign and put themselves into the 2nd Round Proper draw with a fine 3-1 win over visitors Barking from the same League and Division.        An even game throughout was effectively swung in Borough's favour by an outstanding demonstration of speed, persistence, ball control and clinical finishing by hat-trick heroine Aishah Bolaji;   but it needed a gritty team performance with all Borough's players putting in a determined 90 minute shift and everyone responded wholeheartedly.   Their reward is a 2nd Round visit to LEWES of the South East Combination, the League which Borough would enter if promoted.

 

BOROUGH GET TOUGH CUP DRAWS

 

Borough now know their opponents in the early rounds of the three knock out competitions entered.

 

In the FA WOMENS CUP   they have a bye in the Preliminary Round and will be at home to WANDGAS who finished 3rd in the London & South East Regional league Premier Division last season on Sunday 27th September.

 

In the EASTERN REGION WOMENS LEAGUE CUP   history has repeated itself as they will visit WOODBRIDGE TOWN in the First Round on October 4th and that will be an early opportunity to avenge the defeat suffered at Notcutt Park in last seasons Quarter Final tie.     If they get past “The Woodpeckers” then another difficult away tie awaits as they will visit either CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY or HUNTINGDON TOWN and the University who won the Competition last season are obviously favourites to win their First Round match.

 

In the LONDON WOMENS CUP   Borough visit HAMPSTEAD of the Greater London League in the First Round on October 18th.   Victory would most result in a local derby with TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR of the South East Combination who will start as favourites in their First Round tie with HACKNEY, also of the Greater London League.    If Spurs are defeated then a National league side – either ARSENAL or WEST HAM UNITED will visit Coles Park for a  semi-final game.

A hat-trick from striker Carrie-Anne helped HFC to a commanding 6-0 victory over Bethwin A to claim the women's trophy at Your Game East London.

HFC, representing a Kick it Out initative in Hackney, produced a string of scintillating performances at the Leyton Orient Community Complex to stake their claim as potential champions at the national finals next month.

HFC had only conceded one goal on their way to the final, which they dominated from the first whistle.

Star player Sarah added two goals, one a superb finish from a mazy dribble while Jade added the other goal courtesy of a powerful long range strike.

EARLY APPEARANCE IN A FINAL FOR BOROUGH

Not only that, but our player, SARAH CLEARY, won the "Player of the Tournament" accolade.      Well done Sarah.
 
We are delighted to have received the e-mail re-produced below from the Organiser of the event and certainly look forward to participation in next years Tournament.
 
"Thank you all for entering our first ever Spurs Ladies tournament.

We hope you all enjoyed the day, and topped up your suntans because the weather was a little too hot to play football in but the effort all your players put in during the event was superb and we would like to thank each and every one of them to make our first tournament a success.   The spirit the game was played in was how football should be played and at Spurs Ladies we try to install sportsmanship into our teams from an early age and  the way your players performed and handled themselves on and off the pitch was of a very high standard of professionalism, and we thank you for that.

We will be looking at next year for another five a side event and hopefully you would all like to come again and play in our tournament.

The winners were THLFC B and the runners up were Haringey Borough and the score was 2-0

The player of the tournament was Sarah Cleary of Haringey Borough
(congratulations)

Once again a big thank you from Spurs Ladies and hope to see you all next year
