Banbury Piranhas – 3 Gerrards Cross 3’s - 0
For those not that familiar with the Wham 80’s classic “Young Guns (Go for it!)” ….(I fear I may have alienated half the club), the title accurately summed up a great “Coming for Age” performance by the Banbury Piranhas and sealed a well-deserved and needed win at Gerard Cross.
After a week ...
Banbury Piranhas - 0 Eastcote 5's - 1
The Piranhas could only muster a scratch team slightly more scratchy than the scratch team finalists in the "scratch & sniff" World Cup final. But scratch we did and off to a mid table clash in the wilds of Ruislip we went for a scratch match v Eastcote.
Key players were missing through injury - Captain ...
Slough 2 Banbury Piranhas 3
The Piranha team numbers for the very attractive 4:15pm push back time away at Slough had swelled and ebbed like a High and Neap Tide during the week. Captain Allman’s shoal peaked at 14 only to be reduced to 10 Saturday morning …. but after some last minute phone calls and a quick pitch side selection at the 2pm meet ...
Banbury Piranhas - 0 British Airways 2’s - 3
This week saw the Piranhas face league leaders British Airway 2’s at home. The Piranhas line up was their usual mix of youth and experience although the experience does seem to get older each year …. and don’t the cabin crew seem to get younger as well !
Expecting a tough game as British Airways ...
West Hampstead 8’s - 2 Banbury Piranhas - 1
Now when you think about Andy’s Aerials you may think about the the way Campy’s hair seems to have a life of its own these days……. or you might think of his love of the Disney classic “The Little Mermaid”…… or even possibly his skill with a certain brand of washing powder whilst dealing with ...
Banbury Piranhas - 2 Tring 2’s - 1
The season started in earnest on Saturday for the Piranhas with our 1st league match against Tring 2nds who were relegated last year from a tight division 6 last year….. so we knew that we would be in for a tough game. To motivate the team, Captain Allman replaced the previous team awards “Golden Balls” and ...
A disjointed match for the Banbury team as they sought to bring in new faces, try new positions and brush off the summer cobwebs, but eventually two goals (one from an accurate Alice Offord cross) both scored by Vicky Wallington turned the final result into a 2 - 1 win for Banbury.
This was a fast end to end match which was dominated by the Bloxham girls showing excellent passing and support play. The defence from the Banbury team was under a lot of pressure throughout as clearances were recycled for more attacks. Bloxham lead from early on via a short corner, but it was a five minute period in the first half that really separated the ...
An open game played by two young sides with a core of experienced players ended in a 3 - 2 win to Banbury. Towcester lead twice, the home side came back with a short corner goal slotted home by Helen Robey and a exciting individual run from Molly Levene from the half way line.
The final goal came also from Molly following a quick penetrating pass from ...
Missing several experienced players, Banbury started strongly, but, were soon caught on the counter attack leading to Wayferers first goal despite the best efforts of defensive line Becca Edwards, Kristina Bull and Lotty Dee-Andrews.
Banbury snatched an equaliser through some nice team play starting with new recruit Emily Hogg and finished through new ...
