The first game of the year for PNE Ladies ended in defeat as they lost three nil against a strong Cammell Laird side. Preston started brightly and had the best of the early play but Laird gradually started to get their game together, pushing PNE back as the half went on.
At half time Preston trailed by one goal and there wasn’t much in it. The second half continued as the first had finished though with Cammell Laird the stronger team. They sealed victory with two more goals and it was a deserved win for the visitors. A disappointing day for PNE Ladies. PNE battled right till the end and I’m sure they won’t have to wait too long for a first victory of 2019.
