The Round-Up ERWFL 18/02/18

The Round-Up

Sunday 18th February

ERWFL Division One North

A much shortened version of the ERWFL Round-Up to bring you this week but that doesn’t mean alot of games were called off just thee sides were off elsewhere taking part in their various County Cup competitions and will pop up in another Round-Up eventually… Two games were postponed however in the Premier Division so we start in ERWFL Division One North. One game played and at last Wymondham Town Ladies go top of the table was only a matter of time unless someone could end their unbeaten run in the league that wasn’t to be this Sunday at home to Cambridge United WFC Reserves.

Wasn’t the best of starts to the game however for Wymondham as striker Nadine Basson was forced off injured a real concern as she has suffered long term knee injuries in the past. Hoping the damage isn’t too serious and I’ve already spoken to her extend my wishes here too for a speedy recovery. Wymondham have plenty of goals in their side without one of their strikers and top scorer Laura Nicholls kept up her fine goal scoring form opening the scoring in the 15th minute, 1-0 was son 2-0 Brooke Cheal with the shot to score for the hosts. Five minutes before the break Wymondham were leading 3-0 with Nicholls moving scoring again to move onto 35 for the season. 

  Kayleigh Holloway getting on the scoresheet early in the 2nd half extended Wymondham’s lead further. Cambridge pulled it back to 4-1 in the 53rd minute captain Ebony Rule with the strike from distance. Vice-captain Leah Newcombe getting a goal on the hour to make it 5-1 to Wymondham, Kristen Hummel also scoring for the home side in a 6-1 win to take them top.
