NORTHAMPTON TOWN WOMEN SECURE IMPORTANT WIN AT SHEFFIELD

A report on Sunday's action

5 February 2023

Northampton Town Women won 2-0 away to Sheffield in the FA Women’s National League Division One Midlands on Sunday afternoon.

Jade Bell scored both of the Cobblers’ goals as they came out on top in a scrappy contest.

The visitors controlled the first half and created the first chance early on when Bianca Luttman played Alex Dicks in behind and she squared for Bell, who was unable to slide in and turn home from close range.

Fay Noble won the ball on the halfway line and found Dicks on the quarter-of-an-hour mark, and the forward dribbled into the area before forcing Shanae Thomas into a save with her feet.

Noble was key in another free-flowing Cobblers move a few minutes later, playing the ball out wide to Abbie Brewin, her cross was flicked on by a defender and captain Zoe Boote’s header was pushed away from goal by Thomas.

Northampton eventually made the breakthrough 10 minutes before the break when Kim Farrow played Bell in over the top and she found the bottom corner with a composed finish.

There was very little action in the second period, the Cobblers losing their hold on possession whilst the hosts failed to fashion any clear opportunities despite having more of the ball.

The second goal was vital, and the visitors scored it going into the final 10 minutes when substitute Mia Richards played a great through ball to Bell, who set herself and fired into the top corner.

Josh Oldfield and Liam Williams’ side travel to bottom-of-the-table Long Eaton United next week.
