The Round-Up

Sunday 25th February

Suffolk Women’s Division

 Three games played in the Suffolk Women’s Division this Sunday and thing’s a starting to look close at the top as leaders East Bergholt United Ladies are held to a point for the 3rd successive game after a run of 8 straight wins. 

  Were away to 2nd placed Brantham Athletic Ladies on Sunday goals from Jessica Clark and Charlotte McGrath seeing East Bergholt into a 2-0 lead Brantham pulling it back to 2-1 before half-time. Brantham kept plugging away 2nd half eventually getting the goal to earn them a point from the game, Lucy Dunnett and ex-East Bergholt player Jodie Sharp with the goals. 

  Despite earning a point however Brantham Athletic Ladies drop a place to 3rd in the Suffolk Women’s Division as Bacton United Ladies move back above them into 2nd spot as they extended their unbeaten league run to 11 games with a big away win at bottom club Hadleigh United Ladies on Sunday. Lois Balfour top scoring in the match getting 4 goals. Maria Smith and Rebecca White both getting a brace each too with Francesca Rainbird also getting on the scoresheet in a 9-0 victory. Close the gap to East Bergholt United to 3 points now with Brantham Athletic a pint further back but with a game in hand. Games in hand too for Walsham Le Willows who have played just six league games to date to the title race is far from settled.

   A fourth league win of the season for 6th placed AFC Kesgrave Ladies too on Sunday as they claimed the 3 points with a narrow win away to Coplestonians Ladies on Sunday. 0-0 after the 1st half a brace from Lina Nagib seeing the visitors clinch victory with a 2-1 win.
