ASH­FORD Ladies lost their po­si­tion at the top of the Kent Women’s Premier Divi­sion af­ter slip­ping to their first league de­feat of the sea­son on Satur­day.

The re­sult al­lowed Sevenoaks 3A to take over as out­right leaders ahead of the mid-sea­son break af­ter they beat bot­tom club Rem­nants 40.

Ash­ford were con­fi­dent af­ter suc­ces­sive four-goal wins but they made a a slow start and lacked the co­he­sion they had shown in ear­lier games.

Nikki Timms and Char­lotte Kite pro­duced some ex­cel­lent de­fen­sive work, but they could not pre­vent Ash­ford from fall­ing be­hind.

In­stead of up­ping their game Ash­ford heads went down and Holcombe looked the stronger side for the re­main­der of the first half.

A stern team talk from cap­tain Hay­ley Richards saw Ash­ford come back a lot stronger but de­spite shots on tar­get from Ka­rina Green­smith and Emily Jake­man they were un­able to peg back the deficit.

Ash­ford re­sume their league pro­gramme on Satur­day, Jan­uary 16, 2010, when they en­ter­tain Old Wil­liamso­ni­ans.
