v St Mary's Calne U15C Won 5-0
v Marlborough U15B Lost 2-5

Marlborough 4ths came 3rd in their first match of the season on Saturday in the Wilts and Dorset County Tournament. In the first of 3 close matches, they were pipped to the post by St Mary’s Calne Bs (1-2) having fought off SMC thanks to committed all round defensive play and some solid goal keeping from Lorna (Breen). Captain Poppy (Grenville-Collins) stirred the 4ths up again for the next match against SMC Cs. Eylul (Toksov) making her first appearance as goal keeper, displayed a natural flair for the role not letting in a single goal. Thanks to determined defending and some speedy transitional play the 4ths won the match 5-0 with Poppy, Lorna, Kate (Hawthorn) and Layla (Phillips) scoring. Finally, the 4ths met the other Marlborough team in their pool, the U15Bs. The 4ths threw everything into the last 20 mins with Eylul making some impressive saves and Zara and Xanthe scoring goals, but the U15Bs managed to close the match 5-2 and indeed, win the tournament.
