Women's Development Team Vs Malet Lambert

This Sunday the ladies welcomed Malet Lambert to Steve Prescott in what would be an exciting game as they looked to build on their midweek fixture as they hadn’t played Malet since earlier on in the season. The home side started well with their new formation and a new starting 11. The home side dominated the game and looked in control but were unable to convert their chances. The back four of Watson, Greenley, Holmes and Bentley and keeper Cooke limited the opposition’s attacking threat stopping them in their tracks. United took control of the game with some great battles in the centre of the pitch between Workman and Pinder against the opposition. Mansell and Ibbotson posed a great threat on the wings troubling the Malet defence with Groves and Derbyshire looking to latch on to the final pass but were unable to challenge the opposition keeper. A couple of personnel changes with Neale-Wright and Hughes coming on for Derbyshire and Ibbotson. Groves broke the deadlock to put United ahead a few minutes before the break. Neale-Wright quickly added another. United 2 – Malet 0.

After the break United came out with the same work rate and determination shown in the first half and it wasn’t long before Neale-Wright was on the score sheet again with a long range strike giving the opposition keeper no chance. United 3 – Malet 0. Kerrison, Whitfield and Witty were introduced to the side adding some fresh legs and energy on a very hot day. United continued with their high press and troubled the opposition all over the pitch and United got their reward with Neale-Wright getting her hat-trick. Malet had a bit more of the ball. However the hull United defence along with Cooke in goal dealt with everything brilliantly! Ibbotson added the icing on the cake and finished the game off, sealing another 3 points for the home side. For the remainder of the game United kept control, despite the consistent pressure and hard work from the visitors. The final score was 5-0 to the home side, leaving them 5th in the table.

Player of the match went to Jamie-Leigh, she causes the opposition no end of problems and created us lots of chances and brilliant hat-rick. Next week the ladies welcome Pinefleet Wolfreton. We won 2-1 previously in what was a very close game, so this should be a great game, one the girls are looking forward to.
