In Pictures: PNE Ladies v Leigh RMI

I was back at UCLan for the game between Preston North End Ladies and Leigh RMI today. Leigh had the best of the opening exchanges but Preston started to dominate the game and at half time led the visitors by two goals to nil.  A goal apiece in the second half saw the game end with a deserved victory for the home side in what was a really good team performance. Here are the photos:

Fylde Ladies put on a great performance under the lights at Mill Farm Stadium to record a served win against a strong Huddersfield Town Ladies side. It was really strong performance with Fylde finishing 2-1 winners.  Here is a set of pictures from the game.

The last day of September and it was a chilly one as Fylde Ladies took on Yorkshire rivals  Sheffield Ladies. It was a game that Fylde dominated and the score line of 4-1 just reward for a strong team performance. Well done Fylde.

Here are a few photos from the game…


In Pictures: Fylde Ladies v Blackburn Rovers Ladies

A mid week local derby on the Fylde was a real battle of a game between two good teams. Rovers were the side that looked most likely to score throughout the game but they didn’t manage to create many clear-cut chances and Fylde defended brilliantly, playing more like the away side. In the end Rovers got their goal and it came from a goalkeeping error.  That one goal was the difference between the teams in the end.

From a photographic point of view it was near impossible to get decent pictures under what are really poor floodlights down at Kellemargh Park – the game having been switched from Mill Farm. Here’s are a few picture I did get…



In Pictures: Sir Tom Finney Ladies -v- Penrith Ladies

A hard fought game down at the UCLan Arena finished in a defeat for the home side as Penrith took all three point with two goals in the last 10 minutes. STF had been leading following a bit of a strange deflected second-half goal but on the balance of play they can’t have too many complaints about the result. Penrith pressed STF throughout the game and worked hard for their victory.

Here are some pictures from the game.


In Pictures: Fylde Ladies v Nottingham Forest Ladies

In the FA Women’s National League Norther Premier Division, Fylde Ladies took on Nottingham Forest Ladies on what was a damp day on the Lancashire coast. 

The game, which was played at Squires Gate Football Club’s ground finished 0-0 but Fylde will probably think themselves a little unlucky not to take all three points.  In a game of few real chances, Fylde certainly showed the most attacking intent but the closest they came to a goal was a shot that came back off the bar in the final minute of the game.

Defeat for PNE Ladies in final game

Preston North End Ladies suffored a disappointing 3-0 defeat in their final game of the season against Carlisle Ladies.  There was an inevitability about the result today, as Preston only managed to field nine players but even so, the performance was a bit lack-lustre.

Carlisle struggled for a while but went into the break one goal to the good. Two second half goals sealed it for them.   Not much else to say really – the season just petered out.
