Allison Cowling: 7

Comfortable performance, taking her opportunity for a start in goal. She made a few good saves, and showed good distribution of the ball throughout.

Emma Kelly: 8

A very solid game from a midfielder playing out of position at the back, she was also really good going forward.

Neve Herron: 8

Again looked soild playing out of position, the young star was full of confidence and produced some great balls forward. Has Sweetman-Kirk in her pocket most of the evening.

Louise Griffiths: 7

Played well at centre half, but quite as not as good as she does playing as a fullback. Nevertheless, she showed why she’s so valuable to this team.

Faye Mullen: 7

A quiet but comfortable game for Faye before she was withdrawn in the second half.

Libby McInnes: 7

Seemed to struggle slightly with the physicality of the match but performed really well overall.

Maria Farrugia: 6

A busy game, gave her all and worked as hard as ever, but didn’t always choose the best options going forward.

Holly Manders: 8

Full of energy, never stopped running until injury forced her off.

Emily Scarr: 7

As versatile as always, started leading the line, ended the game at full-back. A real team player and a solid performance as ever.

Eve Blakey: 7

Made some great runs and held up the ball well on her return to the side, she gives the gaffer options as the season progresses.

Abbey Joice: 9

Probably the best game I’ve seen her play. She was all over the park and full of energy, played some great balls forward, and showed her quality.


Keira Ramshaw: 8

That is how you take a penalty.

Jess Brown: 7

Did really well when she came on, exactly what you need from a second-half sub.

Iris Achterhof: 7

The Dutch player was unlucky to miss a chance to get a goal toward the end.

Grace Ede: 7

Good to see a debut for the 16-year-old prospect, and she really didn’t seem out of place in the side. Exciting times.

Player of the Match: Abbey Joice


Whether you trust the process or not, they’re going full steam ahead regardless
