It’s been another positive week for the Fleetwood Town Wrens Ladies as the first-team managed to pick up yet another win, beating Blackburn Community 2-1, making it seven unbeaten in all competitions!
First-team – Blackburn Community Sports College 1-2 Wrens Ladies
After what was probably the worst start possible in which they conceded in the first minute of the game, the Ladies put their heads down and got to work trying to find a way back into the clash in Blackburn.
They had to wait until the 51st minute to bring the game back to level terms as this season’s top scorer, Emily Jones found the back of the net for the seventh time this campaign for the Wrens.
The Ladies weren’t done there though as another goal came 12 minutes from time by Beth Gregory, which meant they were able to complete the comeback and bring all three points back to Lancashire.
Wrens Ladies First-Team: Cardwell-Wilsdon, Crawshaw (Woods 31’), Hunter, Jones (C), O’Neill, C.Parkinson, E.Parkinson, E.Slater (Gregory 65’), S.Slater, Warbrick (Brown 46’), Hendry.
Reserves – Bury FC Womens 6-1 Wrens Ladies
It was a first league loss of the season for the Reserves on Sunday afternoon as they had to battle against not only the weather but also a tough terrain at Gigg Lane.
The home side took the lead early on as Kimberley Tyson found the net 16 minutes in, but the Reserves fought their way back and it back to 1-1 five minutes later as Carmel Daniel added an 11th goal to her tally this season.
After this equaliser though, the side – who now find themselves in second one place behind the Wrens – found another goal through Ella Mooney and it was a prolific performance from Phoebe Duckworth from the bench, who netted four times in 19 minutes at the end of the game to secure the result for Bury.
Wrens Ladies Reserves: Aitken, Daniel, Duffy, Hodkin, McCarthy, Richmond, Stritch, Thompson, Wilcock, Wright, Mullender.
Development Squad – Wrens Ladies P-P Bolton Wanderers Girls
Finally, the Development Squad couldn’t continue their recent run of form, which has seen them win three in a row, as their home game against Bolton at Bruce Park had to be postponed due to an unplayable pitch.
The Wrens find themselves in midtable after beating Blackburn Community, and Morecambe Ladies both home and away in the last few weeks - their next fixture will be a local derby against Blackpool on Thursday.
