Saturday 21st September saw a fantastic start to the 2019/20 Norfolk Division 1 league season, with a convincing win over Great Yarmouth and demonstrating fantastic teamwork. Beccles had two players who were very new to the team, Anya and Claire Clarke, and what an excellent performance they both put in. Beccles being the stronger side on this occasion, were allowed space to play their game and come together so well as a team. Another member who has made a comeback is Sarah Webster, who also had an excellent game showing great skills and strength. Beccles had most of the possession but took a while to get on the score sheet as Yarmouth defended well, especially their keeper who had been ‘promoted’ from the development team.
After 20 minutes Sarah broke the deadlock shortly followed by a goal from Jodie Sharp to make the half time score 2-0. The second half was much the same with Beccles constantly pressing the opposition, and Hannah Eaton, Claire Clarke and Ruth Swann, all added to the final tally of goals, making this a fantastic team effort, with 5 different players scoring.
