Redditch Ladies are edged out

REDDITCH LADIES produced a valiant display at high-flying Bromsgrove Ladies on Saturday but the hosts recovered from a goal down to prevail 2-1 in Worcestershire League Division One.

Redditch took a deserved lead when they broke from a Bromsgrove penalty corner and the ball was eventually fired home by Becki Clarke past the helpless keeper.

Bromsgrove were much-improved in the second half and forced Beth into numerous fine saves but they eventually levelled and then took the lead, although the Kingfishers were still enjoying decent periods of possession.

The visitors saw Kirsty Stafford sin-binned but still had chances to equalise and maybe snatch victory but they just could not take them.

Emma Preston was player of the match for Redditch, who host second placed and unbeaten Harborne Ladies 3rds tomorrow.

GOALS from Sue Ellis and player of the match Anna Cardy earned Redditch Ladies 3rds a 2-2 draw at Stourport Ladies 5ths in Worcestershire League Division Three.

Ellis opened the scoring but the visitors found themselves 2-1 down in the second half until Julie Jones equalised.

This was a great result and the team played really well and they will be hoping to build on this when they host Droitwich Ladies 2nds tomorrow.

JOEL HASLAM struck a last-gasp equaliser to earn Redditch Badgers a 1-1 draw against Bromsgrove.

An open first half ended goalless and in the second half midfielders Josh Baker and Connor Adams impressed for Redditch, but it was Bromsgrove who opened the scoring with ten minutes remaining.

This sparked Redditch into life and a great pass into the D from Callum Amos-Pace was picked up by Ben Tominski but neither he, Joe McInerney or Charlie Ralph could convert the chance.

A penalty corner was awarded to Redditch at the death though and Haslam injected the ball, Amos-Pace missed the shot but Haslam was eventually there to score the equaliser.

The Badgers host Worcester tomorrow.
