Stafford Rangers LFC 0 Chasetown Ladies 15

This Staffordshire County Women’s Football League encounter looked like a mismatch on paper and so it proved as high-flying Chasetown dismantled struggling Stafford.

Rangers had not managed to field a full 11 players all season and this was no different as they battled away with nine. Despite their numerical disadvantage, Stafford kept plugging away and saw their goalkeeper produce a string of good saves.

But Chasetown were able to play possession football right from the start. The problem was that they had so much possession they seemed determined to set up everyone else to score rather than taking responsibility and shooting on sight.

With two extra players, Chasetown went in at the break 5-0 up. The interval saw a couple of substitutions as Abi Picken and Holly Cooper were welcomed back into the team following injuries.

As the game wore on Stafford began to tire and Chasetown scored six goals in the last ten minutes of the match. The last two goals were powerful strikes from the edge of the box by Katy Bridge and Charlotte Bull.

Under these sorts of circumstances good players can grab themselves a hat full of goals and the damage was really done by Jade Arber scoring three and Sinead Treanor scoring eight.

Chasetown’s player of the match was Heather Loynes.

Chasetown: Sarah Thompson, Natasha Whitehouse, Nicci Barter, Chelsee Spencer, Katy Bridge, Jodie Edwards, Jodie Kinsey, Lyndsey Turner, Heather Loynes, Sinead Treanor, Jade Arber, substitutes, Charlotte Bull, Holly Cooper and Abi Picken.
