Grimsby Town Women Maintain Fine Form

Sunday saw us make the trip to Sleaford Ladies for a League match.

The game started lively and stayed lively throughout the whole match, with Emily Blyth putting us ahead after good work from Eden Pedersen provided an excellent far post cross which Emily bundled home.

In a very open game, it looked likely that GTWFC would score more goals but failed to capitalise on numerous opportunities to further the lead held. The second half saw a noticeable uplift in attacking opportunities from the home side bringing our goalkeeper, Danielle Richardson into the action far more than we had anticipated.

She was on top form and made three vitally important saves to keep that precious clean sheet which allowed us to take away a 1-0 win. Credit to Sleaford who made this a really tough match, and to GTWFC who dug in deep worked really hard to gain an important away win and vitally the three points.

Of note was the very capable referee performance from Joanne Mackenzie who performed admirably throughout the whole match.

Injured skipper Kim Brown said “I felt first half we were completely dominant but just couldn’t get more goals on the board. The second half went a bit flat but we grafted and got the win which was the most important. The 3 points were crucial and we came away with them”.

Central midfielder Danielle Brighton added, “A game where we had plenty of chances to extend on our lead but unable to finish them. The girls put in the shift needed to come away with the 3 points which is another step in the right direction”.
