Ladies suffer last minute equaliser after strong Bury performance

Fleetwood Town’s Wrens Ladies First Team were back at Poolfoot Farm at the weekend as they played out a score draw against Bury FC Women on Sunday.

In the typical fashion for our Ladies, they started the game strongly and quickly asserted dominance on the opposition, putting Bury’s goalkeeper to work in the opening stages, but she pulled off two brilliant saves to keep the score at 0-0.

This seemed to be how the rest of the first half would go as the woman between the sticks was putting on a valiant performance throughout the opening 45, meaning that it was all still to play for after the break.

Our Ladies restarted the game the same way they did in the first half as they created huge spells of possession but were unable to find the back of the net and put themselves into the lead.

Eventually, Town took the lead as our player of the match, Holly Hunter, produced a venomous strike from 25 yards which clashed with the bar and flew into the net 20 minutes from time, which was more than deserved for the Wrens.

Unfortunately, they were unable to hold onto this lead as in the closing stages of the game, Bury pressed to at least salvage a point from the league clash, and that they did, as in the 89th minute, they levelled the game up meaning the points would be shared.

The positive to take from the game was the performance, but the result didn’t go their way - they will be looking to get back to winning ways next time around. The same goes for the Reserves who lost out to Mossley Ladies at the weekend.

An away clash was on the cards for the Reserves and was against a tough side, who were in top form from start to finish. Even though Town was unlucky not to go ahead early on through Ruby Hindle, it was the hosts who struck first.

A strike from Louise Stritch levelled things up soon after, which was a much-needed boost for the Ladies, but the hosts started to take control of the game and found the net multiple times in quick succession, putting the game to bed.

A shout-out goes to Sarah Cook, who was the player of the match in this game for the Wrens as the goalkeeper had to play out of position in this game, featuring in the midfield for a one-off occasion.
