Hull Kingston Ladies V Hull United Women's Development

Hull United Ladies faced Kingston Ladies in today’s game. A few absences in the squad enforced some slight changes to the line up and positions.

Captain Nellie Rawson opened the scoring for United on 10 minutes with a well taken goal coming in from the right wing.

United were immediately on the attack after the restart which resulted in Jamie Leigh Neale-Wright lobbing the ball over the keeper into the net. United’s third goal came from a hard working Emma Johnson in the centre with a well placed shot past the Kingston keeper. A mistake in defence by Hull United allowed Kingston to capitalise and make the score 3-1. A Kingston own goal from a United cross pushed the score to 4-1 in United’s favour. United kept possession well for the remaining minutes of the first half, with a fantastic display from Emma Johnson who scored two further goals before the half time whistle.

HALF TIME 6-1

United started the second half in a lethargic fashion that allowed Kingston to score first. Carmen Hall continued to work hard in the striker position, but through balls were a little bit heavy from United’s midfielders, that negated any chances to be converted. Jamie Leigh Neale Wright scored the next goal for United after cutting inside from the right wing. Another lapse in concentration allowed Kingston to breakaway and score their third goal. The match became very scrappy for the last 20 minutes with both teams giving away possession on numerous occasions. A final own goal by Kingston saw the game end with an 8-3 victory for United.

Coach Dave Blain was pleased with the result but unhappy with some elements of the performance that will be addressed in United’s training this week.

Player of the Game was awarded to Charley Sutherby for relentless effort from her wing back position.
