Hartlepool United Women’s Team return to action for the first time in 2019 on Sunday when they play host to Farsley Celtic in the NERWFL Premier Division at Grayfields (2pm kick-off).

Craig Devon’s high-flying outfit haven’t played since thrashing Castleford White Rose 11-0 in early December but will hope to pick up where they left off this weekend.

Pools kick-off the New Year sitting second and 15 points behind Durham Cestria, though they do still have three games in hand on the runaway leaders so hope remains they can keep the pressure on.

Sunday’s opponents Farsley Celtic have suffered a frustrating campaign so far by their standards – having finished fourth last term, the West Yorkshire side sit down in seventh ahead of the weekend.

The game at Grayfields Enclosure on Sunday is free entry to all supporters so make sure you get along and give your backing to our Women’s Team if you’re able to.

Women's Team Make It Four In A Row

Jenni Duffy-Smith scored the only goal of the game as Pools Women’s Team kicked-off 2019 with victory over Farsley Celtic on Sunday afternoon.

The influential defender pounced on ten minutes to find the net with what proved to be the decisive strike as Craig Devon’s high-flying outfit stayed second in the NERWFL Premier Division table.

The game - played at Grayfields - was always likely to be a tightly-contested affair, with both teams keen to hit the ground running upon their return from a Christmas break.

However, the key moment arrived early when Justine Robinson was felled on the edge of the area and Duffy-Smith got on the end of Alisha Smith’s free-kick to put Pools in front.

The visiting goalkeeper then had to produce a series of decent saves as Pools pressed for a second goal but the game remained locked at 1-0 going in to the half-time break.

It was a more end-to-end affair in the second half with Farsley Celtic offering a greater attacking threat and both sides playing some good football at times.

Pools were able to see things out though and claim a fourth successive win and keep some pressure on runaway leaders Durham Cestria.

“The girls showed a different side to them today,” Devon enthused afterwards.

“With tired legs and a constant onslaught, we remained together and gained the result as a team.

“It was a true show of grit and determination to keep hold of the lead and pick up another three points.”

Full Time: Pools 1 Farsley Celtic 0

Pools: Campbell, Bartlett, Stabler, Stuart, Duffy-Smith, Rowbotham, Hampson (Ingram 60), Robinson, Carter (Hammond-Garrington 40), Smith, Pye.
