NORTHAMPTON TOWN WOMEN MANAGEMENT DUO TAKE POSITIVES FROM DERBY DISPLAY

Reaction to Sunday's action

30 October 2023

Northampton Town Women joint-managers Josh Oldfield and Liam Williams were pleased with their squad’s performance despite their defeat at home to Derby County in the FA Women’s National League Plate second round on Sunday.

Kim Farrow and Zoe Boote scored the Cobblers’ goals as their FAWNL Northern Premier Division opponents progressed to the quarter-finals of the competition.

“It’s disappointing to lose the game and be out of the Plate, but we couldn’t be more proud of the girls today,” Williams said.

“We knew it was going to be a tough game, and we knew we had to be up to the challenge.

“We defended really well on the whole and made Derby work hard for their goals.

“The scoreline flatters them slightly because we were well in the game.

“The two goals either side of half-time killed our momentum, but it was nice to get a goal at the end, and we could have had a couple more.”

The Cobblers return to FAWNL Division One Midlands action at home to Leek Town next week. Bell scored a brace whilst Richards, Boote and Dicks netted the other goals in a 5-0 win when the sides met in the FAWNL Plate first round at the beginning of October.

“We’ll prepare in the same way that we do for every game, and we want to get three points,” Oldfield added.

“Whilst cup games are nice, there’s nothing more satisfying than winning in the league.

“We have knowledge of Leek having played them recently in the Plate, and we know that they changed their manager and signed lots of new players in the summer.

“Hopefully we’ll put in a good performance with and without the ball and earn another victory.”

Sunday’s fixture at Fernie Fields Sports Ground will kick-off at 2pm. Season tickets are valid, whilst individual match tickets are available at ntfcdirect.co.uk and on the gate.
