Reigning champions held by Hutton

Hutton held last season’s champions, Keynsham Town, to a draw in their opening game.

HUTTON Under-15 girls entertained last season’s county champions, Keynsham Town, in their opening game of the new season.

Keynsham’s few forays into the Hutton half were met with a solid defensive wall of Anya Lawrence, Georgia Ferdinando, Hannah Capes and Eva Ferdinando, who all had excellent games with stand-in keeper Hannah Worley seeing little action.

The Hutton central midfield partnership of Bobbie Perrett and Lauryn Nigh were quickly onto any loose ball and with Danni Williams and Meg Lewis working well on the wings, Keynsham began to get stretched and both Tia Craig and Gabby Massey brought good saves from the visiting keeper.

As the first period drew to a close, it was Keynsham who threatened to break the deadlock as the Hutton girls took their foot off the pedal.
