The Round-Up – Suffolk 14/04/19

The Round-Up

Sunday 14th April

Suffolk Women’s Division

East Bergholt United Ladies are the Champions of Suffolk for a 2nd successive season winning back to back titles. Not quite the way they would have wanted to as the 3 points were awarded after opponents Walsham Le Willow Ladies forfeited their game at the weekend. Nonetheless a fantastic achievement defending their title with a long winning streak losing just the once to 2nd placed Needham Market Women. The aim now to make it a back to back league and cup double as they look to defend the league Cup on Tues August 30th at Hadleigh FC against Needham Market Women.

  Congratulations to East Bergholt United Ladies on this season’s league title.

  Needham Market Women newly formed this season pushing East Bergholt all the way to ensure they didn’t run away with things at the top of the table a runners-up finish confirmed and they are also in the finals of both the League Cup and County Cup two great games to look forwards too. This Sunday they were at home taking on another newcomer Brettvale Ladies who have improved as the season has gone on and things are looking positive for next season. This Sunday however they were soundly beaten by Needham Market who are way out in front in terms of goals this scored in the league 114 to date 5 of those added against Brettvale. Francesca Rainbird top scorer with another goal taking her tally to 29. Amber Sparks up to 20 for the season also on the scoresheet. Abbie Wilkinson, Jemma Wessels and Nicola Anderson also getting their name on the scoresheet.

   Another new side this season enjoying a successful campaign are Woodbridge Town Ladies climb up to 3rd in the Suffolk Women’s Division table with a narrow 2-1 win at home against Alresford Colne Rangers. Goals for Kimberly Edwards and a 19th of the season for top scorer Jenna Liverpool securing the 3 points, strong in 2019 with just 2 defeats from 12 played. Jo Harvey scoring the goal for Alresford.

   Leiston St Margarets Ladies are looking good now to secure a top half finish in the Suffolk Women’s Division as they  like Woodbridge enjoy a strong 2nd half to the season again just 2 defeats from 10 played so far this calendar year. Were at home this Sunday taking on Chantry Grasshoppers Ladies and despite Charlotte Archer scoring her 12th goal of the season for the visitors goals from Sarah Cooper and Justine Young saw Leiston St Margarets win the game 2-1.

  Coplestonians Ladies were away to bottom side University of Suffolk Women this Sunday and despite being short on numbers held a narrow lead at the break.
