2017-18 Season: Bank of England (2s) 1 – 1 Berrylands

A usual close encounter v Bank who had suffered a heavy defeat in the first week of the season. They had a full-strength team and for a lot of the match were on top, despite Berries having several good shots on goal (Cairalee – you were on fire, bad toe or no bad toe) but the stand-in goalie for Bank denied us any ...

2017-18 Season: Berrylands 0 – 7 Camberley & Farnborough (2s)

We were due to play table toppers Camberley and Farnborough ….. we only had eight players. Luckily Helen V stepped up, and Beth and Lish were drafted in as new players.

2017-18 Season: Berrylands 7 – Surbiton 2

They were quick and skilful but luckily we also had speed on our side with Grace and Phoebe carrying the ball up to the Surbiton goal ….. and it wasn’t too long before we had taken a convincing lead. Surbiton’s heads were never down though and with a ... More

Guildford (3s) 4 – 1 Berrylands

Leatherhead (2s) 5 – 2 Berrylands

Goals Sharon, Sofie D The sun was shining at Therfield School but as we took to the pitch, we were two players short ….. Canela and Sofie had been stranded by an uber driver somewhere in deepest Surrey and were desperately trying to find their way to the ground. They finally arrived about 15 minutes late, courtesy ...

Berrylands 0 – 1 London Eds (4s)

So near and yet so far ….. once again, London Eds defeated us by one solitary goal which came half-way through the first half. They had bought a full squad of 16 players. Berrylands were without Vix who has picked up a bad toe injury from the Bank game (nothing broken) and Helena who had a slight groin strain. There was ... More
