It was a bit of a rout for Ascot United Ladies in Division 1 of the Southern Region Women’s Football League at the weekend as they beat Winchester City Flyers 9-2 at Ascot Racecourse – a game watched by a famous face.
Current Chelsea Ladies and England attacker Fran Kirby was watching on as Amy Woollard (pictured with Fran above) hit a hat-trick in the match.
Kirby tweeted later ‘Congrats on the win’!
Congrats on the win ☺️⚽️ https://t.co/sVGcK4YkJg

Kirby scored 67 goals in 42 games for Reading FC Women before making the move to Chelsea in 2015 scoring 7 goals in the recent 2016 FA WSL1 season.
We spoke briefly to the @ascotladiesfc twitter account who said: ‘Fran was their just to watch as she is a close friend of a couple of players. Tried to get her to sign but she’s sticking with Chelsea.’
