Macclesfield Express - - TRAVEL -

MACCLESFIELD Town Ladies FC U18s wel­comed last sea­son’s cham­pi­ons Manor to Back Lane and as soon as the whis­tle blew they knew there were in for tough game.

Manor started well and were first to ev­ery ball, but this woke up MTLFC and soon started there tick tacky foot­ball style.

MTLFC soon took the lead with with foul on Tay­lor with re­sult­ing set piece taken by Booth, with swing­ing free kick flicked on by Wil­liams to Fries­ner who buried the ball in the back of the net.

The sec­ond was great vol­ley by white­head in top cor­ner af­ter com­bined ef­forts by Fletcher, Fries­ner and Wood­head.

Manor were not to be out done and showed great fight­ing spirit to put pres­sure on the Macclesfield de­fence to score two quick goals to draw level.

The sec­ond half started with Manor pil­ing on the pres­sure, the de­fence of Wood­ward, Fog­a­rty, Ben­nett, Mot­ter­shead pro­tect­ing Coombes in net, but with Manor’s skill they took the lead.

MTLFC don’t give up and it was Manor’s turn to de­fend, with Tay­lor win­ning ev­ery­thing in the mid­dle along with Wil­liams Booth and Fletcher set­ting up the at­tacks, a cross from Fletcher re­leased Fries­ner to vol­ley the ball past the flail­ing Manor goal­keeper to draw the scores level.

MTLFC weren’t set­tling for a draw, Fries­ner turned provider and sent Booth through on goal, run­ning from half way only had the keeper to beat who pulled out dra­matic save, only for Booth to pounce on the re­bound to bury the ball in the back of the net to se­cure a great vic­tory for this young tal­ented team and their ded­i­cated coach.
