Neston South Wirral ladies 4s   0    Whitchurch ladies 1s    14

Yet another stunning victory for our Whitchurch Ladies 1st this weekend with an astonishing 14-0 victory over Neston. This away game saw fast passed action from start to finish, with Whitchurch building on their previous success to gain the biggest goal difference to date.

Our team had a stunning conversion rate in our short corners, resulting in commendable goals. Jane ‘Crow’ Williamson scored an extraordinary goal with a run all the way up the field to the opposition’s goal.

Debutante Nicola Workman saw plenty of action as she went on to score five of our goals with panache and Chloe Crump, one of our younger players went on to score a fantastic three goals for the team.

Sue Read, whilst scoring one of her four goals, literally ran around every player in the Dee to score with flare.

Both Catherine Gresty and Jess Kimberley made some superb shots into the Dee setting up some great goals. Hannah Morgan-Wynn really championed pushing the ball forward to enable the goals we scored, with Julia Neale working relentlessly on the wing to support our victorious efforts.

Monique Higgs our goalkeeper didn’t see much action this Saturday as the fabulous defence team Claire Roberts, captain Catherine Reece-Gresty and Jane Williamson guarded the goal valiantly as Neston attempted to push forwards.

Lisa Sullivan got the Whitchurch player of the match and the final goal.

The 1s entertain Crewe 3s in their next match 12.00 start at the Whitchurch Leisure Centre.

The first half of the match was evenly balanced with both teams having plenty of chances on goal. There were some blistering runs down both sides of the pitch from Ellie Windsor and Phoebe Jones but the team just lacked the finishing touch. A quick break by Crewe’s player of the match saw the opening goal just before half time.

Crewe started the second half with more determination but thanks to great work by debut keeper, Emily Hilton, the goal tally remained unchanged. Constant pressure from midfield players Becky Brookfield, Charlotte Ridgeway and Hayley Busby thwarted many of the Crewe offensives.

Crewe squeezed a second goal from a rather untidy short corner in the closing stages of the game. The Whitchurch players never gave up and can take heart from a good performance and look forward to their next match at home against Neston South Wirral 3s starting at 15.00 at the Whitchurch Leisure centre.
