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.
