NORTHAMPTON TOWN WOMEN DEVELOPMENT SQUAD RECORD PRE-SEASON WIN

A report on Sunday's pre-season fixture

30 July 2023

Northampton Town Women Development beat Biggleswade United 7-1 in a pre-season friendly on Sunday.

The Cobblers dominated possession in a strong and commanding performance.

Kitty Crouch opened the scoring with a left-footed strike from the edge of the area.

Ellie Barker doubled the lead after some free-flowing build-up play, winning a challenge with the ‘keeper and ensuring the ball rolled over the line.

Biggleswade United halved the deficit, but Barker restored the two-goal advantage with her second goal when she followed-up after the ‘keeper parried a shot.

Barker completed her hat-trick after linking-up with Georgia Tear, and added her fourth as she turned Eva Ladyman’s square ball home. She has now scored seven goals in three pre-season fixtures.

Ruby Oxley slotted across goal and into the bottom corner to make it six with her first goal for the Development team, and another first-time Devs scorer, Ilanna Stelfox, rounded-off the scoring when she broke into the area and finished one-on-one.
