Ex-Beacon Hill Player leads on FA Respect Campaign

Amy Purser learnt her football as a player for Rovers’ Girls then Women’s teams. When she was 15 she took advantage of the Club’s offer to support qualifying as a referee, now she’s working her way up the refereeing pyramid and recently spent some time at St George’s Park being filmed as part of the current FA’s Respect Campaign: https://www.englandfootball.com/explore/inclusive-football/Respect/respect-the-


Over the weekend it was Hill’s Women’s result that grabs the attention with their 16-0 (sixteen-nil!) defeat of Chelmsford City Reserves in the County Trophy. The Men’ssquads achieved the result of getting four teams out on Saturday and the spirit was good across the teams in these difficult times at the moment. Sometimes it’s a win just to get out on the field and work hard to support your mates; do that and play to the best of your ability qualifies as a win. The Firsts went down at home to Runwell when a 0-1 deficit with ten minutes to go ended 0-3 as Hill pushed for an equaliser, a battling Reserves lost 1-4 at Stock and the Vets’ unbeaten record went to Harold Wood 1-2. The A’s picked up a 2-0 win at Wakering.

Hill’s Youth Teams on Sunday were led by the 15s who won at Aveley by the odd goal in eleven, the 13s lost 1-5 to Intersports, 11s beat Hannakins Farm 4-1, 10s won 4-3 against Maldon Saints, the 9s did well to stick together as a team against a very strong and physical Braintree team (1-5) and the 8s beat Maldon and Tiptree 4-2.
