Ladies 7th team v Dragons 8 (Home (L) W 3-0)
With a chilly, Siberian wind blowing across the pitch, we started our late afternoon match. Every ball was hard-won with lots of running, tackling and blocking so when the ball finally got to Dragon’s circle, we were delighted when Annie Lancaster, with sheer determination, smashed the ball past the keeper. Dragons came back with a vengeance but we had a strong team and with some expert dodging and a fast pace, young Ella Spear took the ball past their defence and sent the ball home.
Our skipper, Daphne Beckett, reminded us to look up before passing and this certainly helped during the second half. Dragon’s did take the ball to our circle but our goalkeeper, Katy Davy, played superbly as did the defenders. A short corner, struck by Jo Meyer, was received by Shirley McAllen who calmly hit it straight into Dragon’s goal. Shortly
