Jess Perkins scores on debut for Yellawomen

Derby delight for Ascot United Ladies

Ascot United picked up only their second win of the Southern Region Women’s League Premier Division on Sunday as they defeated Barton Rovers 5-0 in a Berkshire derby.

The Yellawomen were only a goal up at half time after Lauren Broadhurst scored after 7 minutes but a second half blitz saw Jessica Perkins score on her debut as well as goals from Lucy Holzman-Clarke, Darcey Young and Katie Vince earn the points in Reading.

There was no fixture for Woodley United who remain fourth in their first season back in the Premier.

In Division 1 Wargrave earned a 2-2 draw on the Isle of Wight against Shanklin while Wokingham & Emmbrook’s trip to Southampton Women’s Development was postponed.

In Division 1 of the Thames Valley Counties Women’s Football League, Eversley & California beat Launton 3-1 thanks to an own goal and strikes from Katie Hougham and Megan Averill.

In Division 2 East, Binfield edged a tight tie at Guildford Saints 5-4 thanks to goals from Ruth Bowerman, Kiah Owen and Ariesha Stephenson-Lewis along with two own goals – making up somewhat for a penalty shoot out defeat in the League Cup in November.
