Sat 6th October. Leamington 3’s V Shipston 1’s.

On a slightly wet morning it was always going to be hard to set off at high tempo and Shipston were quickest off the blocks and came out fighting. However after the first 10 minutes Leamington found their form and shots on goal were made, but halted - in particular a well played move between Amy Cooper-Tutton and Lucy Strange. After a feed in through from central midfield Nat Carrol scored a corker hitting the top left hand corner and Leamington were ahead. However Shipston were determined not to be outdone and with a lucky break equalised with a few minutes to go before half time bringing the score to 1-1.

Into the second half and both sides upped their game determined not to go home with one point a piece. The Leamington side pressed Shipston fantastically causing them to sweat and after 10 minutes of attacking play within their 25 it looked like Leamington would be rewarded with a goal from a Nat Carrol reverse stick move, but no a short was given instead. Again Shipston had a few breaks causing chaos in the middle, but the Leamington defence of Polly Powling, Rhian Thomas, Elysia Macwhinnie and Kirsty McMullan stayed strong and managed between them to save a goal on the goal line.

Milly Hemmings retaliated with a great drive up the right of the pitch finding Lucy Strange in the centre, but Leamington were denied further goal success after a strike on goal which missed by inches. Further goal attempts were launched from the midfield with a hit into the D from Erica Wright deflected by Nat Carrol, but again frustratingly narrowly missed the far right post.

The end score was 1-1, one more point added to the league table, player of the match to Polly Powling and as we’re still waiting for Laura Zeidan at the Bowling Green pub she was nominated our Wally of the game...
