Fleet stretch unbeaten run to six matches
Another fine performance from a
Gravesend & Northfleet Ladies team, growing in strength and confidence
every game they play, sees them go six games unbeaten and settling in third
place in the London and South East Regional Premier League table,
writes Stephen McCartney.
After gaining promotion last
year, it has been a great start to Fleet ladies season, who are taking
nothing for granted in this new league, as they are working hard every
week to improve team performance and strengthen as a squad.
they faced another tough test in the league facing former South East
Counties team Crowborough Athletic Ladies, who twice managed to narrowly
take points from Fleet Ladies last season.
Fleet ladies were more than up

The game finished a well earned
1-0, and was a good strong all round team performance. Next week Fleet
Ladies travel away to Tottenham Ladies in the league, where they hope the
good run continues.
& 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.
