Pools’ Women’s Team will look for their third successive win on Sunday when they entertain Castleford White Rose at Brierton Sports Centre (2pm kick-off).

Craig Devon’s girls will be high on confidence after back-to-back wins over South Shields and Wallsend and will hope to keep the pressure on near the top of the table with another victory this weekend.

Pools currently sit third in the North East Regional Women’s Football League Premier Division, one point behind second-placed South Shields on whom they have a game in hand.

Opponents Castleford lie second-bottom in the table having collected just four points from ten games so far and Pools thrashed them 7-0 when the sides met in West Yorkshire back in September.

After another strong performances over the past twelve months, Pools will be hoping that they can sign-off in style in what is set to be their final outing of 2018.

The game is to be played on the 3G pitch at Brierton Sports Centre at 2pm and entry to all supporters is free so pop along and give the Women’s Team your support if you can.

Pools Women’s Team moved back up to second in the NERWFL Premier Division on Sunday after smashing eleven unanswered goals past Castleford White Rose at Brierton Sports Centre.

It was a third straight win for Craig Devon’s in-form outfit and the result helped them leapfrog over South Shields in the table and move back 15 points behind leaders Durham Cestria with three games in hand.

After a slow start to the game, Pools gradually began to move through the gears and, when Justine Robinson rattled the underside of the crossbar with a ferocious shot on 17 minutes, the visitors struggled to fully clear the danger and Caitlin Bates rammed in the opening goal.

It was 2-0 just after the half-hour point when Jade Pye measured a cross for Lottie Portas to coolly finish at the back post before Robinson lashed home a brilliant goal from twenty yards to make it 3-0.

Portas returned the favour by setting up Pye for the fourth goal on 41 minutes and it was 5-0 by the break after a classy turn and pass from Robinson sent Bates away to finish first time for her second of the game.

The exceptional Alisha Smith drove home a wonderful sixth goal not long after the restart before substitute Lucy Hammond-Garrington made an impact by scoring the seventh with a thunderous shot after yet more good work from Robinson.

Skipper Robinson then grabbed her second of the afternoon with another unstoppable strike from long-range to make it 8-0 and then turned provider once again with a low ball across goal for Hammond-Garrington to steer home the ninth.

Pye showed her ability to shoot from long-range when she hammered in to make it 10-0 and then Hammond-Garrington completed her hat-trick with a smart turn and shot to round-off the scoring.

“We started the game in quite complacent fashion – possibly thinking it would be too easy after beating them 7-0 in the away fixture earlier in the season,” admitted Devon afterwards.

“Eventually we began to put in the work that was required for the goals and they started to flow.

“I was also really happy to see the clean sheet because that shows the levels of concentration we have in the squad now.

“It was a great result to finish 2018 on and it gives us something really positive to build on moving in to the New Year.”
