Saturday saw the Ladies’ 2s at home to face Northampton, who just dropped down into Midlands Prem. Continuing in similar vein to last season, the ladies fought back from a half time 0-1 score line to win 4-1, with all four goals scored by different players.
Next week: Away vs Leamington Spa 1 (12 noon pushback)
In the first game of the season, a very junior 3s team faced Beeston 4s. The 3s went out with intent and started strong with 2 goals early on. With communication and confidence developing throughout, the 3s were 4-0 at half time. In the second half, a further 5 goals were scored, with goals from Charlotte & Georgina Mablethorpe, Jenna White, Phoebe O’Hara, Esme Thompson & Fran Stonier. The 3s were very lucky not to concede as the 4s fought back hard, but just couldn’t find the back of the goal.
Next week: Home vs Worksop Ladies 1 (5pm pushback)
Next week: Away vs Nottingham University Ladies 2 (2:30pm pushback)
Ladies’ 5s were at home with a young side to Nottingham Players Ladies 2s. After an end to end first half, Beeston were down 0-1. A change in formation and a considered team talk saw the 5s dominate possession. Unfortunately, it was the opposition who made the most of their opportunities in front of goal and the game finished 0-3, despite the efforts of young goal keeper Tia Powell.
Next week: Home vs Worksop Ladies 2 (4:30pm pushback)
The Ladies’ 6s battled hard in their 1-0 loss to West Bridgford 4. A close game with some excellent movement of the ball and continued resilience of the Beeston defence, the 6s were unlucky not to come away with points.
Next week: Away vs South Nottingham 1 (12noon pushback)
Next week: Home vs Trent Vale (10am pushback)
