Northampton Town Women joint-manager Josh Oldfield says his side’s 6-1 win away to Kettering Town in the first round of the Northamptonshire FA Women’s Cup on Sunday was an enjoyable win.
Rachael St John Mosse scored a brace and Gracie Williams, Alex Bartlett, Charlie Cooper and Alex Dicks scored the Cobblers’ other goals.
Speaking after the match, Oldfield said: “We haven’t played Kettering in a long time.
“It’s a local derby, it’s one we wanted to win and it was an enjoyable one.
“We dropped below our standards in the first half but that’s something we corrected in the second half.”
Oldfield and Lou Barry’s team travel to Tamworth in the Vitality Women’s FA Cup third qualifying round next week.
Barry added: “It’s a competition that we want to go as far as we possibly can in because it’s an opportunity to play against teams in higher divisions and earn some prize money.
“We don’t know a lot about Tamworth so we’re looking forward to it.
“However, there were a couple of injuries today that need to be managed.”
Goalkeeper Jo Daniel made her 100th Cobblers appearance in Sunday’s win, and Barry said: “It’s brilliant for Jo, she’s been an ever-present, a fantastic character and a really good goalkeeper over the years.
“The girls value her and respect her a lot.
“To reach that milestone is special and hopefully there’s at least another 100 to come.”
Daniel added: “I’ve been here for a long time so it’s a proud moment for me.
“I’m honoured and really proud.”
