East Midlands Ladies’ League

South Derby 8

Grantham Ladies 15

Grantham Ladies had their second away fixture this week, facing South Derby in the newly-formed East Midlands Ladies’ League.

Grantham started well and secured two early goals through India Wilkinson in the pit, and a well-executed one from Millie Stewart who made her mark in the first period.

The second quarter saw two quick return goals from Derby early on, before Grantham returned fire through Stewart (2), Alex Barnett and Giorgia Bosworth.

The third quarter had Grantham attacking the deep end with some elegant set-plays and confident passing which delivered four more goals with Rose Bitowt’s accurate corner shooting and Bosworth (2) and Wilkinson adding to the tally. Naya Patel kept the Derby attack under control, saving several power shots from Derby.

Entering the last quarter, Ellie Robinson notched her first of the game through some great team support, whilst Derby rallied to score three more.

Grantham Ladies (goals): Patel, Bitowt (1), Stewart (3), Kirke, Wilkinson (5), Bosworth (4), Peters, Robinson (1), Cox, Underwood, Barnett (1).
