n THE NOTTS County Ladies Development team were too strong for Teversal in a 2-1 league victory.

Desire to win the ball resulted in the first goal with with Lauren Betteridge leading the way and Sammy Barlow and Kirsty Peat interchanging brilliantly, a Barlow shot eventually parried and Charley MacLaren scoring the rebound.

Notts continued to create chances and the second goal came when Carolanne Clark spun with her back to goal and fired home.

Teversal pulled one back but Notts held on to win the game.

Player of the match was Laura Muir.

n NOTTS County Ladies’ first team were dumped out of the League Cup 4-1 by Ellis Town.

Despite a depleted squad Notts started well and Hazel Clark in goal didn’t have a save to make in the first period.

Their goal came on 40 minutes when Jasmin Bear’s cross was deflected in by a defender.

Poor finishing would, however, be the home side’s downfall as Ellis Town went on to hit four in the second-half, including a hat-trick for Team GB Olympic hockey bronze medallist Sal Walton.

n NOTTS County U10s were in great form as they hammered Gedling Southbank 8-1 in the League Plate Competition at Church Lane.

Chelsea Musgrove took on goalkeeping duties and produced a fine display throughout, while there was also a debut for Lydia Sears.

Paris Greenham was working hard in the middle of the park and the goals soon came as Lucia Wardle, who has the knack of being in the right place at the right time, scored two super strikes.

Ellie Barrow marked the Gedling forward throughout the game making it hard for them to break clear, and as this was going on goal machine Phoebe-Wardle-Collins netted a double hat-trick, which came about from quick counter attacks and dogged defending from Elena Gale who released great long range passes up to midfield.

n NOTTS County U11s travelled in the opposite direction as they faced Gedling Southbank, also in the League Plate, but lost 3-1.

For the first time this season Notts were to play four 15 minute quarters and the girls adapted to it without a second thought.

With a first quarter goal for Tashan Keeling it looked like the plate game was going to go Notts’ way.

A a great team performance saw Emma Hodges at the heart of most of the action aided by Megan Green, Phoebe Harris and Lucy Walton.

The midfield of Keeling, Freja Strom, Eliza Dodsworth, Nell Bemrose and Jasmine Hallam was kept busy but were a match for everything that Gedling decided to throw at them.

The three Gedling goals were all that separated the two teams in a brilliant game that saw Nell Bemrose pick up Player of the Match.

n A HEFTY 7-1 defeat was handed to Notts County Ladies Under-13s by Wollaton in the league.

It was far from a one-sided affair despite the scoreline. Heather Briggs had an early goal disallowed and Notts went into half-time 2-0 down, which soon became 4-0 early in the second-half.

Amy Wainwright set up player-of-the-match Lisa Miller whose long-range effort was expertly followed in by Alex Mills for Notts’ goal, but three more for the visitors sealed Wollaton’s win.
