Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Front Page -

ASH­FORD Ladies recorded their sec­ond suc­ces­sive 4-0 victory when they trav­elled to Meopham on Satur­day.

The re­sult took them to the top of the Kent Women’s Premier Divi­sion, just ahead of Sevenoaks 3A on goals scored.

Both teams have a goal dif­fer­ence of plus 20 but Ash­ford have man­aged one more goal than their op­po­nents.

Satur­day’s win was Ash­ford’s fifth in a row dur­ing which time they have scored 19 goals while con­ced­ing just two and they took con­trol from the start against Meopham, with for­wards Kim Cameron and Kate Reed hav­ing a few early shots on tar­get.

Ash­ford went ahead when Ka­rina Green­smith beat four play­ers be­fore tuck­ing away the first goal.

Soon af­ter, some su­perb pass­ing by Me­gan Thomas and So­phie Hunt set up Reed for num­ber two.

Then an­other drive from mid­field saw player-of-the-match Emily Whit­taker fire home from the top of the D.

Cap­tain Hay­ley Richards then rounded off an­other good day for Ash­ford when she de­flected in a short cor­ner.

Ash­ford are at mid-ta­ble Holcombe 2nds this Satur­day.

ASH­FORD bowed out of the EH Women’s Vase on Sun­day when they went down 5-2 at home to Wor­thing in their sec­ond round tie.
