Runcorn Linnets Ladies recorded a comprehensive 5-1 win over Tranmere Rovers Reserves in their latest friendly at the Millbank Linnets Stadium tonight. First half goals from Molly Hewitt and a brace from Lile Ashley put the Linnets three up before a shell shocked Tranmere side could get a foothold into the game. It was only then that the visitors regardless of the score line started to play some entertaining football. With Manager John Pickering pleased with his team`s first half performance the Linnets made four substitutions at the half time interval. Two further goals by Captain Becky Barker increased the Runcorn lead before Tranmere pulled a late consolation goal back with 14 minutes of play remaining.
