Hereford Lads Club Ladies Edge Closer to the Title
Hereford Lads Club Ladies knew their game on Sunday at home v Wyre Forest Ladies was going to be tough. The last 2 away meetings had ended in defeat, with Wyre Forests small pitch not suiting the Hereford Side. Playing at home on the County Ground meant Lads Club could play their preferred style of football. With Lads Club needing to win their last 2 games in order to secure the league, everyone involved knew the importance of the match against Wyre Forest. As a result there were some nervous players before the game.
As expected Wyre Forest were an equal match and the first half saw strong play from both sides, so much so Lads Club headed into half time at 0-0. After a team talk from Coach Clive Powis, they headed out ready for the 2nd half with a clear objective. By now the players had settled and started to utilize the full pitch, playing some good football. At last half way into the 2nd half Elle Williams buried the ball into the back of Wyre Forests net, 1-0 and now with a little pressured released Lads Club Ladies got into their stride. A few opportunities missed but they still kept the pressure on, before Sophie Turner took her chances scoring a further 2 goals to give a convincing 3-0 win. As always the whole team gave their full effort and were rewarded with a much needed result. Lads Club Ladies are now just one win away from Lifting the Midwest Ladies League title for the third time in 4 years.
