Wells Scores Twice in Draw & Lambe Unused
Nahki Wells scored twice as Huddersfield recovered from being two down to draw 2-2 with out-of-sorts Ipswich.

The fact that Wells who had watched from the bench for the last two games came back fresh and healthy would indicate to the local Bermuda Press continue reporting ant let the manager of a Professional Football Team do the coaching and selecting the team!

Wells scored from the penalty spot before heading home from close range to cap an amazing fight back from the visitors.

Ipswich center-backs Tommy Smith and Christophe Berra had put the home side ahead.

Before the second half drama, Grant Holt, so often a thorn in Ipswich's side when leading the line at rivals Norwich, should have given Huddersfield a 13th minute lead.

Jacob Butterfield broke clear before releasing Holt but he poked a shot wide of the far post when he should have made Dean Gerken work.

And the striker was made to pay for the miss after 20 minutes when Ipswich took the lead with their first effort on target.

A succession of corners ended with Teddy Bishop's flag kick finding the head of Tommy Smith who nodded in at the near post.

The lively Wells went close in the 32nd minute when Paul Dixon's through ball somehow made its way through to the Huddersfield striker.

His instant shot was blocked by Gerken and the rebound came at him too quickly as he headed it over.

Huddersfield had responded well, but almost fell two behind when Bishop's free kick went all the way through to Smith who deflected the ball onto the post before Alex Smithies just about gathered the rebound.

Wells had Gerken scampering across his goal in injury time, when his audacious first-time volley from an acute angle was tipped around the post by the alert Ipswich keeper.

Ipswich doubled their advantage nine minutes after the restart when McGoldrick controlled Jonathan Parr's clip over the static away defense and the striker's low cross was turned in by the unmarked Berra from close range.

Halfway through the second half, Huddersfield keeper Smithies was called upon to expertly use his head as McGoldrick ran at the goal.

Out of nothing, Huddersfield got themselves back into game following a hotly-disputed penalty.

A deep cross into the area saw Chambers and Holt go to ground and referee Richard Clark had no hesitation in pointing to the spot.

Wells made no mistake from 12 yards to grab a deserved goal before substitute Harry Bunn shot at Gerken's legs as Huddersfield went for the equalizer.

Murphy drilled a shot just wide and then had a header which lacked power to trouble Smithies before Huddersfield equalized with eight minutes remaining.

Substitute Sean Scannell's cross found Wells who headed home from the edge of the six-yard-box.

Reggie Lambe

On-loan striker Daniel Carr scored on his debut to earn Reggie Lambe’s Mansfield a point and deny Russ Wilcox his first York win.

Lambe was an unused substitute yet again for this match.

Diego De Girolamo turned on the edge of the six-yard box to fire the hosts into a 20th-minute lead.

Carr volleyed home Mansfield's equalizer just after the hour mark.

IslandStats.com
The Bermuda Football Association (BFA) announced that BFA Executive member Shequita Parson and BFA Women’s National Team Coach Naquita Robinson will be representing Bermuda at the CONCACAF Women’s Seminar “Let’s Develop Women’s Football” to be held this weekend in Philadelphia.

Parson is attending as the representative of the BFA whilst Robinson is attending as a presenter for one of the workshops at the seminar. Going forward, Naquita Robinson will work closely with CONCACAF to tailor make a Women’s Football development plan for the region.

BFA President Larry Mussenden stated that CONCACAF recognizes that the future of Women’s football is in the hands of the member countries, and through close collaboration we have the opportunity to open the door to the numerous benefits and opportunities that football offers to thousands of young girls in our region. In Bermuda, we know we have hundreds of girls in the school system who love to play football. We are keen to provide regular football development and activity to those girls and we look forward to re-establishing our football for girls. Likewise, we want to have an exciting league for our women’s football. Our women’s and girls’ national teams have had huge success over the last few years and we encourage more players to come out and get involved. We are also encouraging any girls who want to be referees to get involved.

The main objectives of the “Let’s Develop Women’s Football” seminar are:
• Current status of Women’s Football in CONCACAF
• Common needs in the Region
• Strategic Planning

Parson is the chair of the newly re-established Women’s Committee. She also serves as a member of the Caribbean Football Union Women’s Committee. She is also a very experienced Match Commissioner for CONCACAF whereby she travels to international matches and is responsible for all aspects of the organization and playing of the match.

Robinson is a long standing Women’s’ National team Coach and a former national team player. She attended the CONCACAF D License course in Cayman Islands in 2013 where she was successful in obtaining her CONCACAF D License.

We extend best wishes to Parsons and Robinson in representing Bermuda and we look forward to their future participation in developing and establishing the game in Bermuda for the benefit of all Women and Girls.

Bell and Hitch Return to Winning Ways

IslandStats.com
Tahj Bell and his Hitchin Town teammates were finally back to winning ways after defeating 10-man Banbury United at Top Field.

Hitchin did not have the best of starts, with both Ben Walster and Matt Lench picking up a yellow card within the opening ten minutes.

Jonny McNamara, however, did give the hosts the first shot of the game, although it was well off-target.

Then, an in-swinging ball from Charlie Smith looked promising, but a lack of Hitchin bodies in the box resulted in an easy catch for Banbury keeper Leigh Bedwell.

Moments later, Bedwell was alert in sensing the danger of a poaching Robbie Burns, and intercepted the ball in from Lench.

Sam Barker then had a shot from long-range but it went straight in to the arms of Bedwell.

It was Josh Shama who was first to create opportunities for the visitors - heading over the crossbar from a corner taken by David Lynn, and minutes later seeing his shot go just wide of the post after he was once again given space inside the box.

A poor corner from Burns then gave Banbury the opportunity to counter-attack, and it was Adeyinka Talabi who stormed up the wing - his shot just curling over the crossbar.

Hitchin then saw some good build-up play wasted. It was Burns who initiated the move - lifting the ball in to space for McNamara, who in turn drove in to the box where he was eventually given support through Donnelly and Burns. Donnelly let McNamara's pass run to Burns, who was immediately crowded out by the Banbury defense. Burns lay the ball off to Barker, who had time and space on the edge of the box, but his shot was wild and well off-target.

A straight red for Banbury's Harry Jervis in the latter stages of the first-half gifted Hitchin with a man advantage, in turn giving the visitors a difficult task in the second-half.

Within seconds of the sending off, heroic keeping from Bedwell denied Donnelly and McNamara in what was Hitchin's best opportunity to take the lead.

The last chance of what was a fairly uneventful first-half, fell to Donnelly, who headed over the crossbar after McNamara had chipped the ball to him in the box.

Hitchin took the lead five minutes in to the second-half - Dan Webb left completely unmarked at a Hitchin corner and heading the ball with ease in to the back of the net.

Marvin Martin then took a shot from long-range but it went straight in to the arms of Bell.

Bell was then called in to action moments later - pulling off a great save to deny Leam Howards, who had skipped through the defense with ease.

McNamara then tried a curling shot but it was off-target.

After continuous pressure, Burns put the home-side two goals ahead in the 68th minute. It was Donnelly who provided the assist.

It then looked like it was 3-0 to the Canaries, but Lench was flagged offside after heading an in-swinging ball from Lewis Rolfe in to the back of the net.

Moment later, an off-target shot from Burns flashed across the box, almost providing the perfect cross for Donnelly to tap in. The power of the shot, however, just took the ball away from the feet of the Hitchin forward.

Bell then finished the game with a great save to deny the visitors any consolation spreading himself wide to block a shot from Shama.
