ISFA girls played their final game of the season against a quick Australia team. ISFA started slowly and after a spell of pressure from the Australians found themselves 1-0 down after failing to clear a corner. Minutes later Australia doubled their lead when a mix up at the back allowed the forward to tap home. ISFA grew into the game and created some chances themselves but were unable to find the finishing touch.

Early in the second half ISFA looked to be taking control of the game. Sarah Hill created some space after some brilliant footwork but a last ditch tackle prevented an almost certain goal. Australia broke quickly from this and almost immediately added to their lead. In the final moments the visitors added a fourth with a well struck shot from the edge of the box. A good team performance that the girls should be proud of but unfortunately fell short of the strong Australian squad.


Following the match, the ISFA Girls received their international caps.

ISFA U18 Girls 0 – 5 Welsh Colleges

ISFA battled hard but Welsh College proved too strong scoring four goals in the first half. ISFA came out much stronger in the second half, pressing Wales and preventing them from playing.

ISFA U18 Girls 3 – 1 Shropshire Schools
St. George’s Park

ISFA U18s started their St George's Park camp with a game against Shropshire Schools. Despite dominating possession in the first half, ISFA found themselves 1-0 down at half time after failing to deal with a long ball. Following some changes in the second half ISFA began to capitalise on their possession and equalised through Sarah Hill following some lovely interchange play. ISFA's confidence grew and minutes later took the lead when a Shropshire player headed into her own net from Isobel Coppel's in swinging corner. Lucy Withers wrapped the game up with 15 minutes to go with a perfectly placed 30 yard lob over the Shropshire goalkeeper.

Fenners Cricket Ground

The first half of this match, played at an historic venue, was a slightly scrappy affair with the ISFA Girls apparently showing the effects of a game the previous evening.  However, the second half proved a very different affair with ISFA taking the initiative and dominating the game. Francesca Scott opened the scoring with a powerful finish across the goalkeeper and ISFA were soon 2-0 up when Anna Jowle's free kick was palmed out by the Cambridge keeper and Izzy Emmett was on hand to nod the ball home.  A remarkable strike from Marie Stute from inside the centre circle was next and the scoring was complete when Khalea Lewis-Vaike burst through and Sydney Conway added a fourth to seal a very impressive second half performance and a most encouraging Cambridge Camp.

at Huntingdon Town FC

The ISFA Girls started the game very strongly and played with a real attacking intent from the first minute. Some excellent midfield passing created early chances and it wasn’t long before they took the lead when Francesca Scott opened the scoring with a tidy finish after some excellent build up play.  ISFA soon doubled their lead when Izzy Emmett finished after she was set-up with a delightful back heel From Francesca Scott. Anna Jowle then added two goals, the second a 25 yard screamer that gave the goalkeeper no chance, that saw the ISFA girls race into a 4-0 lead after 20 minutes. Cambridge City soon hit back with after some wonderful build-up play was finished off and the score remained 4-1 until half time.

ISFA once again started the second half strongly and produced some excellent football passing the ball through the thirds and creating chances, with the pace of the forwards creating a constant threat. Francesca Scott got her second goal of the game with a low drive across the keeper before Cambridge City rounded off the scoring with a precise chip over the goalkeeper.

The game finished 5-2 with both teams contributing to an excellent game with some exceptional football on display.
