MAC­CLES­FIELD TOWN LADIES FC

THE only team to rep­re­sent Mac­cles­field Ladies Football Club last week­end was the U13s team, their op­po­nents be­ing Cross­fields U13s.

The first fif­teen min­utes proved a cagey af­fair with both teams prob­ing each other’s de­fence, nei­ther find­ing a weak­ness with both de­fences stand­ing up to the sus­tained pres­sure.

It was MTLFC who broke the dead­lock. Olivia De­lany slot­ted a through ball to Lilly Fal­lon who smashed the ball straight at the Cross­field goal­keeper.

It re­bounded into the path of Sara Dale, lurk­ing out­side the six yard box, and she calmly stroked it home.

It looked like this was go­ing to turn into a rout with MTLFC hav­ing nu­mer­ous chances but none con­verted.

Cross­fields stuck to the task with sus­tained at­tacks, the Mac­cles­field de­fence soak­ing it up led by girl of the match El­lie Pol­lard who was con­stantly clear­ing the ball out of the dan­ger area.

The sec­ond half con­tin­ued much as the first half ended with Cross­fields con­tin­u­ally on the at­tack. This pres­sure was re­warded with a well worked moved that pen­e­trated the Mac­cles­field de­fence to bring the scores level.

Not to be out­done, Mac­cles­field re­sponded with an­other, once again Olivia De­lany find­ing Lil Fal­lon whose an­gled shot found the back of the net.

Other no­table chances went to Sara Dale who clat­tered a shot into the post and Susie Brid­gette who puts her all in ev­ery match.

It was an en­ter­tain­ing dis­play from both teams, the re­sult keep­ing Mac­cles­field third in the league, two points be­hind lead­ers Run­corn lin­nets.

The U18s were also in ac­tion but were beaten 8-0 by sec­ond place Frod­sham, not a good day at the of­fice by this ta­lented young team.

If you are in­ter­ested in play­ing girls only football the club hold reg­u­lar taster train­ing ses­sion Mon­day and Wed­nes­day evenings for age group U7-U18, and also have an open age football team.
