Young ladies lose to Leafield

WITH league safety secured, TNS Ladies took the opportunity to play some of their youngsters in a 5-1 home defeat at the hands of Leafield Athletic.
Keeper Izzy Foster made her first start for TNS watched by regular stopper Ang Birkett, who found herself unexpectedly playing an outfield role in the second half!
With just 11 players it proved to be too much of an ask for our youngsters who went behind after 25 minutes.
Kate Doster equalised a minute later when she chipped the keeper from 25 yards, but a somewhat fluke effort put the visitors back in front before half-time.
On a very hot afternoon, the unwell Sian Skelton was unable to continue after the break and, with loaned boots, Birkett was introduced.
Leafield were dominant in the second period and added three more goals to complete a well deserved win.
Next up is the short trip down the M54 to Wolves this Sunday May 16, kick-off 2.00pm.
