Threave add Jaekel to squad
The girls were slow out of the blocks, allowing Queens to put them under pressure. The visitors’ first goal came as Kacey tried to clear and unfortunately put the ball in her own net.
Threave girls created limited chances in the first half with balls being played with slightly too much on them. Queens extended their lead with a shot from outside the box. The girls continued to play well in defence, stopping Queens getting clear cut chances through some good blocks and clearances and good saves from Heather.
The best chance Threave got in the first half was when Alice burst through the Queens defence before firing a shot wide.
The girls came off at half-time Threave Rovers have continued building for the new season with another new signing.
Defender Ben Jaekel has agreed to join from St Cuthbert Wanderers.
He is Sam Warren’s fifth new signing of the season, following Dalbeattie Star duo Hugh Cameron and Lewis Todd, former Queen of the South youngster Shaun Handling and defender Bryce Wilson.
Warren said: “I’m happy to get Ben sorted out for next season. He’s been a long-term target, having been a consistent player at Saints for the past couple of seasons.
“He’ll be an asset for the club, and we’re excited to see how he gets on at Meadow Park.”
The Threave boss has also secured the signatures of several members of last season’s squad including Adam Uphill, Jordan Patterson, Jack McMurdo and top scorer Dan Thom.
Warren added: “Dan was one of the players from last season we were desperate to keep a hold of, so I’m absolutely delighted that he’s made the decision to stay at Meadow.
“He’s been one of the top performers in the South of Scotland League for a number of years now, and because of this we know there has been interest from one or two other clubs, so we’re happy that he’s agreed to remain where he is and hopefully he keeps his performance levels as high as he can.”
