Women's Development Team V Pinefleet Wolferton

This Sunday Hull United Women’s development faced Pinefleet at home.

With the visitors having picked up some impressive results throughout the season, the home side knew it would be tough to take the full 6 points away from the two fixtures.

The game started quickly with both sides getting stuck in straight away, but it was Pinefleet who had a greater share of possession, creating changes down both wings. The midfield of Groves, Workman and Holmes worked tirelessly to get the home side up the pitch, creating some good chances for the front 3.

27 minutes gone and Manager Marsden introduced Opketa for Hughes and Derbyshire for Groves. Late into the first half, Ibbotson up top won a free kick near the corner flag, giving United a great opportunity to go ahead, but Ayre’s freekick was cleared off the line by the Pinefleet defended. The ladies went into half time all level, 0-0 with the only real opportunity for the home side coming from Lauren Holmes, who forced the keeper into a great save.

The second half came and the home side started quickly, with Derbyshire in the middle linking up the play well. Greenly replaced Holmes and slotted straight into left back and did brilliantly. United won a corner 10 minutes after the break which saw Groves whip it straight into the Pinefleet goal. 1-0.

Kerrison and Holmes were reintroduced and had an immediate impact. With Holmes getting on the score sheet with 25 minutes to go. The back four of Greenly, Ayre, Pinder, Watson and keeper Cooke kept the opposition out well and managed to see through the 2-0 victory.

A much improved second half after being second best for much of the first. Another big 3 points for the home side leaves them 5th in the table with 2 games to go.

Player of the match was awarded to Lauren Holmes, she hassled the Pinefleet midfield and never game them a moment of piece. Her work rate and desire set the standard and she topped her performance off with a well taken goal.

Next week United face Preston away in what looks to be another tough game.
