Fleet sail into first round of Women's FA Cup
& Northfleet Ladies eased into the Women’s FA Cup first round proper
yesterday after convincingly beating Oxford-based team Carterton
a second round qualifying tie, and previous to that disposing of MK Wanderers
in their first qualifying round, writes Stephen McCartney.
match was played at the Fleet Ladies home venue, AEI sports and Social
club in Gravesend.
some stern words at half time and a well deserved kick into action from
manager Valter Antunes, Fleet ladies returned much more focused for the
second half and put together a fine performance, using a more incisive and
quicker passing game they tore the opposition apart and the goals
did mange to score a consolation goal in the dying minutes of the game,
leaving a very convincing 6-1 win for Gravesend & Northfleet Ladies,
taking them into the first round proper for the second consecutive season.
The next round draw is eagerly awaited by the ladies side to find out whom
they are to play.
week Fleet ladies return to league action at home to Crowborough Athletic
ladies, 2.00pm kick off, all support welcome.
and Northfleet Ladies are currently seeking an experienced goal keeper,
and centre back to enhance their squad and a linesman/woman to help out on
home games, qualification not essential but experience would be good.
Please contact the club for more details.
