In only their third friendly, Draycott finally recorded the result their hard work and talent deserved.

The game started in perfect fashion as Eviee Smith scored within a couple of minutes, the first of her seven goals in the game.

The management team, Tim Richens and Mark Smith, were delighted to see the ladies keep a clean sheet with two real contenders for player of the match, Lesley Smith and Milly Harris, alongside debutant Sian Snelgrove.

Draycott played some great passing football with Hannah Rood and Mollie Smith dominating the midfield, helped by Harris and Issy Milne, leading to Smith scoring a further five goals.

Even when Draycott gave Lesley Smith and Sian Snelgrove a rest, Katie Milne, Amelia Keevil and Ella Ugoji stepped in, while Mia Cleaver and Charlotte May both worked hard.

The second half saw the same with Smith adding two more goals, with Anni Drennan also able to make a cameo appearance.

The goal of the game was Draycott’s eighth when a superb run by Charlotte May saw her unleash a shot from the edge of the box which the keeper could not hold.

Thanks again to the team’s sponsors, Cheddar Self Storage. Both teams then retired for food, and drink, generously supplied by the Strawberry Special Pub.
