Leamington Ladies secure first win of the preseason
Leamington Ladies travelled to newly promoted North Conference side Bedford on Saturday. With 2 games already played preseason and now win Leamington were hungry to defeat the odds and secure the win. Coach Grimshaw having tested different formations set the squad up in a newly instructed formation 3-2-3-2 which seemed to click from the off. Vicki Waring resumed the form she displayed last season making some incredible saves to keep her well deserved clean sheet with help from her defensive unit. Leamington broke the deadlock in the second half with Rachel Bradshaw breaking through the heart of Bedfords defence enabling her to take a shot from the top of the D, Bedfords keeper made a fantastic save but could only plant it on Lucketts stick which she placed into the gapping goal.
