In the first of our women’s football round-up, we take a look at how each of our local clubs got on in the Southern Region Women’s Football League, and Thames Valley Women’s Football League.
Southern Region Women’s Football League
Premier Division: Caroline Paterson scored the first goal for Bracknell Town Ladies back at their Larges Lane home in a 4-2 Chairman’s Cup defeat to Milton Keynes.
A fairly even game all round as the Robins came from behind twice – Tina Leahy grabbing the other goal – but a timely substitution late on gave the visitors a path to the next round with two late goals.
Division 1: Also in Chairman’s Cup action, Woodley United suffered a 6-0 defeat at Wycombe Wanderers
Thames Valley Women’s Football League
Division 2 South: Just the one league fixture in the division as a lively Bracknell Town Ladies Development were beaten 6-1 at home by Flackwell Heath.
In spite of the score, there were plenty of positives for the Robins who played some good football on the ground while Loren Cardy grabbed her fourth goal in eight games, finishing a brilliant move started by Ariesha Stephenson-Lewis on the left wing, played across by Michelle Melia and calmly finished by Cardy.
