Claudia Moan - 7/10
Didn’t have a lot to do, but did it well. Slotting in nicely as a Championship keeper.
Megan Beer - 8/10
Energetic performance from the full back. All of her hard work coming to fruition.
Grace McCatty - 7/10
Solid as a rock. Doesn’t always get the plaudits she deserves. Her experience is invaluable.
Charlotte Potts - 7/10
Again rock like at the back. Fantastic free kick delivery for the first goal.
Louise Griffiths - 8/10
Very, very good. Up and down the left all afternoon - a player that’s raised her game to Championship level.
Jessica Brown - 8/10
Tailed off in the second half, but only because she was so fantastic first half. The Blackburn left-back was subbed off before she was sent off, up against her.
Emma Kelly - 8/10
Took over the captain’s armband. Disciplined performance from the midfielder. Kept things ticking along and her experience helps the young players around her.
Neve Herron - 9/10
What can I say? Wow. Unreal today. Goal and a fantastic through ball for the second. Covered the whole pitch and put her body on the line with two brilliant blocks.
Abbey Joice - 8/10
Not a player I’ve seen a lot of due to the pandemic BUT full of energy out wide. Does a lot of unselfish work. Caused Blackburn problems in the first half.
Maria Farrugia - 9/10
She was full of tricks, running and energy. What a player this girl is. Close to getting a goal in the first half and her performance certainly deserved one.
Emily Scarr - 8/10
Did very well up front by herself. She had plenty of support from out wide and deserved her goal. Ran herself into the ground.
(SUB) Holly Manders - 7/10
Worked hard and slotted in well.
(SUB) Eve Blakey - N/A
Wasn’t on long enough for a mark, BUT this girl will be a big member of this squad no worries about that. Natural goalscorer. Watch out for her.
(SUB) Faye Mullen - N/A
Again too late for a rating but Mullen will play a lot for the lasses this season, and is a valuable member of the squad.
Player Of The Match: Neve Herron
She was everywhere. Pretty much the perfect central midfield performance - a goal, an assist and a goal saving block.
