Binfield Ladies can feel aggrieved not to have taken anything their home tie with high flying Holyport in the the Thames Valley Counties Women’s Football League Division 2 East on Sunday afternoon.

The Moles were lever at 1-1 at the half time break after Connie Wilson had followed up Ruth Bowerman’s cross and equalised after poor defending from a corner gave the visitors the lead.

Bowerman had a great chance to put Binfield ahead as well, latching on to a through ball but was just unable to get enough on the finish.

A slow start to the second half allowed Holyport to take a 3-1 lead but more good work by Wilson earned Binfield a penalty which Michelle Melia (pictured) stepped up to take and finish.

A strong end to the second half saw Binfield push for the equaliser with Nicky Edwards having the best chance only to somehow see her effort ruled out for offside.

Elsewhere in the Division Sandhurst Town were beaten 4-1 by Abbey Rangers Ladies, Nicola Dixon scoring for the Fizzers while Ascot United Reserves were beaten 3-1 at Harefield United, Hannah Woolf scoring for the Yellawomen.
