Northampton Town Women joint-managers Josh Oldfield and Liam Williams were proud of their side after their 4-2 win against Sutton Coldfield Town in the FA Women’s National League Division One Midlands at Sixfields Stadium on Sunday.
Jade Bell scored a hat-trick whilst Alex Dicks scored the Cobblers’ other goal as they came from two goals down to secure all three points in front of 741 supporters.
“The first 20 minutes were tough and Sutton Coldfield presented us with problems,” Oldfield said.
“It took us some time to get to grips with the game, and we were disappointed with the goals that we conceded.
“After that, a lot of character and energy was shown to keep us in it.
“It felt comfortable in the end, and that’s because we’ve got players that can create and score goals.”
Williams added: “It’s never ideal to go two goals down so early in the game, but it was a big test of character and we stayed calm.
“We stuck to the plan and carried on doing what we were doing well.
“The togetherness was second-to-none.
“We knew we had that in this group and they showed it today, so we’re proud of them.”
The Cobblers host recently-relegated Boldmere St. Michaels in their second midweek fixture of the season on Thursday. Kick-off at Fernie Fields Sports Ground is at 7:45pm, and tickets are available at ntfcdirect.co.uk and on the gate.
