Woodley United did East Berkshire neighbours Ascot United a huge favour in the Southern Region Women’s Football League Division 1, taking all three points off Barton Rovers in a 3-0 win in Reading.

The Kestrels are on a superb five match winning run and weathered a bit of pressure early on in the game with May Hamblin opening the scoring on 28 minutes after her initial shot was saved.

Barton looked determined to get back in the game, switching to a front three after the break but Tiff Newland extended Woodley’s lead on 50 minutes and Rosie Page-Smith rounded things off with the third of the afternoon as well as a terrific clean sheet for goalkeeper Emily Sherwood.

Over at Ascot United, the Yellawomen ended their sequence of two draws with a 4-1 win over Wargrave Ladies.

Amy Woollard, Lauren Broadhurst, Hannah Evans and Courtney Gibbons all scored for Darrell Evans side who are four points clear of New Milton Town at the top of the table.
