Notts County Ladies 1st team had to switch their pitch at short notice due to a waterlogged Coronation Park as they entertained a struggling West Bridgford side. With almost a minute on the clock the lady pies found the back of the West Bridgford net when April Bingham ran the ball forward slipped it inside for striker Lauren Yeomans to pop it over the advancing keeper 1-0. From the restart County almost doubled their lead when Anna Horton’s shot hit the post but only 2 minutes later they doubled their lead when Natasha Watson ran the ball from the half-way line to cross the ball in front of goal for striker Courtney Walters to hit first time into the bottom corner 2-0. On the 8th minute from a wide angle Anna Horton smashed the ball with her left foot into the far top corner 3-0. We had to wait a full 10 minutes for number four as Aprils cross was converted with a first time shot for Natasha’s first goal for the club 4-0. West Bridgford put up a battle and worked their socks off but county’s quality of passing and movement was difficult to contain. Just before the break county were awarded a free kick wide of the penalty area of which Jasmin Bear floated in for the ball to drop over the keeper into the far bottom corner 5-0. Early in the second period Natasha made way for Nicola Tomkinson and on 60 minutes keeper Laura Allcock played the ball out wide to Jas, whose forward pass found April who set the ball back for Jas to hit over the top into the path of Courtney who stabbed the ball passed the advancing keeper 6-0. Five minutes later deep into County’s left corner Anna Horton turned her marker played the ball to the feet of Jas who again found April who ran 30 yards and played a square ball into Courtney who hit first time into the bottom corner for her hat-trick 7-0. Not only a good result but an excellent team performance, displaying passing football at its best. Player of the match was awarded to wide midfield player April Bingham who was instrumental in numerous goal scoring chances and a work rate seconded by no other on the pitch. The team next week look forward to an away trip to Retford.
