ISFA U16 Girls 3 – 1 Scotland ISFA
St George’s Park

ISFA started slow allowing Scotland to maintain possession and put them under pressure at the back. Scotland lead the game 1-0 at half time. In the second half ISFA adopted a new shape and distributed the ball positively. ISFA were soon rewarded when Brogan Moore crossed the ball and a Scotland defender knocked it into her own net. ISFA striker Sophie Gillies worked hard up top securing two more goals for ISFA. ISFA maintained a solid defensive performance in the second half and ran out 3-1 winners.

ISFA U16 Girls 3 – 5 Shropshire Schools
St. George’s Park

ISFA U16s started strongly against Shropshire schools maintaining their shape and dominating possession. The girls hard work was rewarded as Leila Emmerson broke through the Shropshire back line, but her shot came back off the post which Ella Needham quickly reacted to and calmly slotted home.  Shropshire were quick to react to this scoring three quick goals to put them up at half time. In the second half ISFA played some attractive football building up from the back and playing through to the striker, resulting in two more goals from Ella Needham and Brogan Moore. As the ISFA girls tired Shropshire managed the game well and slotted home two more goals to secure the victory. 


Thursday 27th October
at Huntingdon Town FC

The ISFA U16 Girls national representative team got their season off to a perfect start with a spectacular second half display against Cambridge City. 

The opening 30 minutes were very even with both teams creating plenty of chances and Cambridge City missing the best of those when they shot just wide of the post after a terrific through ball sent their striker through on goal. Just before the half hour mark Sophie Gillies pounced on a loose ball to finish well and give ISFA a narrow lead at the break.

Early in the second half Leilana Nesbeth scored a screamer from 30 yards and this goal proved the turning point as the ISFA girls found their shooting boots and quickly raced into a commanding lead. Brogan Moore added ISFA’s third and fourth goals with two excellent finishes from outside the box, before Leila Emmerson produced the goal of the game, skilfully beating a player on the edge of the box before finding the top corner.  A free kick from Leila Emmerson and a neat finish from Sophie Gillies completed the scoring and gave the ISFA U16 Girls a 7-0 win on their first game of the season. Despite the score line the game was very close for large periods before Cambridge City tired in the second half and ISFA punished them with some lethal finishing.
