Magpies IV 2 Magpies V 0
Martin and Acock Norfolk Women’s League
THE Ladies 4ths first match of the season saw them facing Magpies Ladies 5ths, certainly a game both sides would very much want to win!
The first half saw the 4th’s take the early initiative, winning any fifty fifty balls and making some positive attacking plays into the 5th’s defensive third. The 4th’s got their deserved breakthrough when a Laura Schultheiss shot from a short corner fell to Rosie ‘Roo’ Barker well-positioned on the penalty spot to slot the ball home. The 4th’s continued to enjoy the majority of possession, and another short corner ended with another Barker goal, from the same position as her first!
The second half, however, was a different story. The 4th’s seemed to lose their shape somewhat and the 5th’s were having much more possession, with most of the play happening in the 4th’s defensive third. The 4th’s held strong though, the defence battling to stop any shots on goal, with Karen Hunt, Claire Snelling, Bella Hall, Sarah Legg, Megg Eglington and Ginny Crawford making valuable contributions.

Mention also for Beth Alexander playing left forward who tirelessly battled back to defend. Credit must go to the 5th’s who never gave up until the final whistle.
A brilliant start to the league season for the 4th’s, an important three points and a deserved victory. Well done girls!
