There were highs and lows this week for Watford FC Girls, which gave an excellent opportunity for all the sides to reflect on the progress they have made this season.

The under-14s hit the biggest result of the day, thrashing Luton Town Ladies 6-1.

Grace Craven hit a brace and there were single goals for Lucy Kirby, Mille Tugby and Charlotte Forster, while an own goal rounded off the scoring for the Golden Girls.

The under-16s were also big winners, hitting five past Pro Direct Academy Herts under-18s in a 5-1 friendly win.

Holly Reid opened the scoring against the older opposition before goals from Charli O’Connor, Amy Drew, Leah Knapp and Aimee Charman wrapped up the game.

The under-18s travelled to Sport London E Benfica Development on Sunday and recorded a 4-1 win to close the gap at the top of Division Three North to just two points.

Sydney Graham was on the scoresheet twice, Chloe Fletcher netted once, and Maggie Bristow came off the bench to cap the scoring.

The team now have two games in hand over the league leaders.

There was also victory for the under-13s in their League Cup game away at Bury Rangers as a goal in each half from Rhianna Wood led her team to a 2-0 victory.

There was no such luck for the under-15s though as they suffered their first league defeat of the season against a resurgent Tottenham Hotspur Ladies side.

Three first half goals were added to by a single goal in the second half to leave the Golden Girls defeated 4-0.

In the under-9 games, the Yellows were up against Hitchin Belles at Sun Postal Sports Club, with Amelia Mariappa scoring twice for them, and the Greens won against Meninas Rio thanks to five goals from Daisy-May Bird, three from Amelia Baskiewicz, two from Olive Mitchell and solo goals from Drew Brady and Heidi Bekteshi.

Finally, the under-10s, under-12s and under-14s all took part in the Regional Futsal Tournament in Bedford on Sunday.

The under-10s took Cambridge under-10s all the way to the final of their age group but had to settle for a runners-up spot, while the under-12s and under-14s put in excellent performances, despite not winning their groups, in their first ever futsal tournaments.
