Fry’s Ladies 3rd XI 1
Winscombe 3rd XI 1
WITH Fry’s languishing at the bottom of the table, Winscombe were held to a surprising draw.
Several good Winscombe attacks were started when left-back Becky Matthews found the excellent Imogen Marsh in midfield. Marsh gave her defender a torrid time all match and laid off good passes to team-mates Shirley Hartshorne and Emma Caney.

Further breaking attacks from the Fry’s forwards needed a couple of excellent saves from keeper Vicky Whittaker to keep Winscombe in the match.
Good work by Sarah Kempster, Emma Whitehead and Ella Byrne set up Gail Izzard to score Winscombe’s well-deserved equaliser.
Further chances fell to Helen Sinclair, Hartshorne and Caney, but the Fry’s keeper made superb saves to deny Winscombe victory.
The John Hodge Solicitors’ player of the match was Emma Caney.
