Blankendal impresses on UK debut

Bermudian Cally Blankendal turned in an outstanding performance for Denham United's Under-15s who beat Flett Town 7-0 in the Surrey League in the UK recently.

Blankendal became the first female member of Bermuda Brazilian Football School to play in a competitive league in the UK.

The daughter of Bermuda Football Association first vice-president, Cal Blankendal, Cally in her first semester at Hare field Academy and just joined her club team, for her first ever match in England, making her debut alongside another new signing, defender Meredith Ceribelli of the United States.

Denham had two goals apiece from Chelsea Pledge and Megan Payne as Denham led 4-0 at the half.

Pledge opened the scoring after just four minutes when she pounced on a goalkeeper error. Payne then added a second from a Tamara Golder free kick before Golder got on the scoresheet when she cut in from the left and fired a rasping right-footed shot. Payne made it 4-0 when she pounced on a ball and rounded the ‘keeper.

After the break Pledge scored with a header from a corner, then Ella King got her reward after hitting the post and the sidenetting when she scored with a well-taken strike into the bottom corner. Ellen Wardlaw completed the scoring.
