Lydney vs Ladies 2nd

This Saturday saw the ladies 2nd team travel to Lydney to take on Lydney’s 2nd team in an away game. Yate put pressure on the Lydney defence from early on, building the play to get a number of shots on goal. Striker Natalie Summers scored the first goal for the Yate side followed by a second goal by Jen. The second half saw some more attacking play from Lydney, however Yate defended well and managed to keep out any goals. After a number of unsuccessful short corners the Yate team finally managed to connect and took a third goal. This sees the Yate team continue their positive start to the season in Berkeley Division 1, having beat Pucklechurch and Old Bristolians in recent weeks. Last season the team narrowly missed on out promotion so will be hoping to finish top of the table this year. Player of the match went to Ruth Belcher for some brilliant midfield play.
