Winscombe Ladies 3rd XI 0

The thirds travelled away to Corsham, with their opponents lying fourth in the table.

In spite of great will and determination by all the Winscombe players, it wasn’t enough to hold back the tide of attacking prowess and skill.

Right from the start, Corsham attacked in waves, carving their way through the Winscombe midfield and defence to put themselves two goals ahead within the first 10 minutes.

More goals followed in spite of valiant defending by Joanna Hann, Tia Rendall and Georgina Glossop and some excellent goalkeeping from Georgia Tulip.

The second half was to prove a much better performance from Winscombe, although Corsham scored more goals.

Winscombe midfielders Elener Philips, Maddie Bawden, Emma Whitehead and Gail Izzard continued to press strongly and linked well with forwards Dulcie Glossop, Jasmine Honour and Trudie Lynham, with excellent support from Gill Harvey.

The Quilter Cheviot player of the match was Georgina Glossop.
