Blues destroyed a poor Reading side with Agg leading the way putting the ball in the onion bag.

Blues were back to their best on Wednesday night at the Select Car Leasing Stadium against a really poor Reading who could be looking at back-to-back relegations under the leadership of Liam Gilbert. You have to remember that Reading are now a part time side after the difficult financial problems after the men’s team got relegated they lost the gaffer in Kelly Chambers who I got so much respect for after the job she has done at Reading. For Blues the goalscoring bug is back in the girls with Moore, Smith and a double from Agg and now are just four points away from top spot where Sunderland are holding the position.


The first chance of the game came for Blues when a corner came out to Claudia Walker whose shot hit the post in the 3rd minute.

Then in the 12th minute the breakthrough came for Blues when Claudia Walker won the ball back brilliantly high up the park. Walker then played it to Lily Agg who found Jade Moore. Moore then riffled it into the top corner past Emily Orman.

Blues should have doubled the lead in the eighteenth minute when Libby Smith was put clean through on goal, her shot beat Orman, but it hit the inside of the post.

In the 25th minute Rebecca Holloway delivered a brilliant ball into the box, but there wasn’t a Blues player to put it away

Then in the 31st minute the move of the game when Lucy Thomas played a delightful ball into Neve Herron, she played it into Libby Smith who looped her effort over Orman to make it 0-2 for the girls in red a brilliant team goal.



The first chance of the second half came for Blues when Jade Moore wanted to make it a brace from long range, but Orman made an easy save in the 51st minute.

Then in the 57th minute Lily Agg charged down the Reading goalkeeper Orman and a cheeky back heel into the net to make it a great Wednesday night in Reading.

In the 77th minute a Lily Agg free kick found Captain Louise Quinn but her sliding effort was saved from Orman.

The last chance of the game came in  the 80th minute when Agg made it a brace after Neve Herron’s cross was headed home by the Republic Of Ireland international.




Like I said a really comfortable night for the girls and our ruthlessness is back and remember we are missing players like Pennock Fuso, Harris and Ellie Mason from the team. The thing that I wanted from the last couple of months is that our UIi finishing was ruthless. It was great to see Libby getting her fourth of the season, Jade getting the ball rolling with a great strike and Agg putting in a POM performance with a cheeky third and a header for her fourth to round of a great night in Reading.

Also, it was great to see two of are academy products getting a taste of the first team on the pitch in Riya Mannu & Millie Pullen two great future prospects.


I have to go for Lily Agg who came into the squad tonight and was so comfortable her goals made it a comfortable evening for the girls in blue her cheeky back heel for the third goal which Reading goalkeeper Emily Orman would not look with great fondness and a great header from Neve Herron’s great ball into the box a brilliant night for the Republic Of Ireland International.


We back at St Andrews on Sunday against Lewes a 14:00 kick off
