Fleetwood Town Wrens Ladies were back in action this weekend, with the First Team and Reserves getting back to winning ways over the Easter Weekend.
First-team: Fleetwood Town 4-0 West Didsbury & Chorlton
The match was played at Poolfoot Farm, and in front of a good crowd on the 4G pitches, the ladies turned up and made sure they picked up a valuable three points on home soil. The win has now taken them into 5th place in the league, with FC United of Manchester up next for the Cods.
Two goals from Emily Slater and a brace from Emily Jones ensured the red and white army got over the line. It was a dominant performance, with some great football played throughout the 90 minutes. One that really pleased the coaching staff in the dugout.
Emily Slater was the Player of the Match at the weekend, not just for her goals but for her overall performance

Carmel Daniel scored four goals in the match, with Lydia Wright and Emily McCarthy scoring a brace. Further goals from Ruby Farrell and Mollie Mullender sealed the victory in Accrington.
The hosts did score one after the break and one later in the second half, but the game was over at half-time with the score 0-5 to the Cod Army. Ruby Hodkin was named Player of the Match, but all 12 who made an appearance were worthy winners of the accolade.
