Under nines back in winning style
MACCLESFIELD TOWN LADIES FC
ANOTHER frosty morning saw a the majority of games cancelled, only MTLFC under nines games defied frost, and being the first game for them for the new year, saw them kick off in fine form.
Their first game against Appleton ended in a draw, although they dominated possession with their passing and movement.
They struggled to break Appleton’s defence down until captain and girl of the match Josie Broadhurst rolled her defender on the halfway line with a scintillating run. Holding off Appleton’s defenders, she calmly slotted the ball into the bottom left hand corner, leaving the keeper with no chance.
Appleton soon scored from the kick off to level the scores.
The second game saw more great vision and passing to beat Crewe FC comfortably, with Emily Davies finding the back of the net twice with two cracking well deserved goals.
Once again captain Josie Broadhurst was on the score sheet, along with Anna Davies who showed great commitment to get the ball over the line.
Crewe responded with with a consolation goal, but couldn’t capitalise as defenders Rebbeca Thraves, girl of the match, and keeper Maggie Davies who both pulled off a string of exceptional tackles and saves to maintain Macclesfield’s lead and ultimate win.
Last week saw MTLFC under 18s pitch up against Leek who they dispatched 7-2, but unfortunately their opponents this week were Manor, last year’s league winners who beat them 3-0. This leaves them fifth in the league seven points off league leaders Rylands JFC.
