Birthday girl steers Shanklin home

Birthday girl steers Shanklin home - 30 Mar 2009 - Women's Football NewsShanklin Reserves won a competitive and enjoyable match 4-2 against Portsmouth University Reserves to lift the Hampshire FA Intermediate Cup at Havant on Sunday. 
 
The Isle of Wight side got off the best possible start when birthday girl and player of the match Sarah Wright turned the ball home in a goalmouth scramble in the second minute. Portsmouth University hit back in the 28th minute with a looping header from Paige Seeley but the Islanders regained the lead in the 41st minute when a free kick from near the touchline was volleyed home by Talley Deacon. A third goal by Shanklin when Ali Cushen hit a beauty from long range, right on half time, seemed decisive.
 
The Uni reseves team, in ther first ever season and comprised of a mix of students and local young players, mounted a strong fightback down the slope and reduced the arrears with another Seeley goal, a precise finish from a right wing cross on 56 minutes.
 
Despite mounting pressure, it was Shanklin who broke away and Wright scored with a fine volley over Sherry Fowler from 15 yards with fifteen minutes remaining. The Uni girls had a glorious chance to get back into the game when Becky Harman was brought down after having gone past three defenders, but the penalty was missed and Jo Hulford-Funnell in the Shanklin goal had few further alarms in the final minutes.
 
Delighted Shanklin skipper Kirsty Bennett lifted the Cup to great applause from the supporters who had crossed the Solent to witness their success in a match played in a sporting and whole hearted manner by all participants.
