Bradford City women held after Danby strike
Bradford City had a good start to their FA Women’s Premier League Cup campaign when they took an early lead in their group game at Newcastle United through Sarah Danby but the home side hit back after the break to force a 1-1 draw.
City, still without a win in Premier League competitions, go to Wolves in their next game before finishing the group stage at home to Stoke City on November 10. But, before that they travell to Sporting Club Albion tomorrow at Halesowen Town.
In the Reserve Cup a strong City side swamped a young Huddersfield Town team 11-1 at Rawdon Meadows with the help of six goals from Rosie McDonald. Also on target were Chelsey Faulkner, Abi Garland, Abi Parkin, Mel Garside-Wight and sub Caroline Omboyi.
City also entertain Stoke City in the reserve competition on November 10 but are back in league action tomorrow with a visit from Leeds United.
Huddersfield’s disappointment at Bradford was tempered by their first team’s 2-1 win at Tranmere Rovers in the Northern Combination. Alice Linsell and Kate Mallin were the Town scorers in that game and the two sides will now meet in the return at Storthes Hall Lane tomorrow.
Unbeaten Guiseley moved into second place in the North East Regional League Premier Division when they won 5-3 at Hessle, with goals from Kerrie Zserdicky (2), Tanya Rich (2), and Caroline Hulme, and they now take on bottom club Scunthorpe and Bottesford at Nethermoor tomorrow.
Bradford Park Avenue disappointingly went down 3-2 in their FA Cup game against Ossett Albion, at Dimple Wells, as the home side shook off their poor start in the North East Regional League to record their first win of the season.
Albion could not have had a better start as skipper Jo Atkinson, moving up from defence to force home a corner, and the pacy Nicky Swift, living up to her name, hit two more before Avenue were able to make any mark on the game.
Sarah Huby pulled one back for the Bradford side before half-time and, feeling they had deserved more in the first 45 minutes, were determined to stage a fightback after the break.
Laura Wolfenden did reduce the arrears further but Kim Nallon was outstanding in the Albion goal to seal their win. Avenue now take on Amaranth in the West Riding League Cup and Farsley, beaten 4-0 by Steel City in the FA Cup are in Premier Division action at home to Brayton Belles. Keighley Oaks entertain Harrogate Railway.
In Division Two Dewsbury Rangers gave a good account of themselves before going down 3-1 at home to Hebden Royd in their first league game of the season despite an early goal from Fran Senior. A cup tie against Premier side Wortley is next up for the Dewsbury side.
Bradford Park Avenue Reserves, beaten 5-3 at Brighouse Sports reserves, and Bradford City A, 10-2 winners at Middleton, are at Deighton and home to Crossley respectively in Division Three.
