SLIDESHOW: Worksop Ladies take on high-flying Derby

Battling Worksop didn’t gain the points but they had plenty to be proud of in their performance at home against second-placed Derby.

Worksop started strong and worked hard for the ball from the off, applying pressure to the Derby defence and making runs and creating chances.

It only took ten minutes for Worksop to get the reward for their hard work, while applying pressure in the D.

Esther Gray created a chance which Tracy Fuller calmly put in the back of the net to give the hosts an early lead. Both teams continued to work hard with Derby creating more chances. Neither team could seem to create goal scoring opportunities until Derby created a chance that they slotted into the bottom corner, leaving the score 1-1 at half time.

Worksop started the second half a little slow and Derby, on the other hand came out fighting and quickly got the lead in the second half.

Excellent defence from Worksop, including man of the match Helen Williams, meant that they couldn’t find the back of the net again.

However, Worksop were also not able to capitalise on pressure, leaving the final score 2-1 to Derby.

Worksop showed perseverance and passion in this game, and although they did not come away with points they should be really proud of their performance.

Elsewhere, Worksop II travelled to Southwell II this week. Southwell were only one place behind Worksop in the league and Worksop knew they were in for a tough game.

Worksop started well, creating several good chances, finally opening the scoring after a lovely cross from Amanda Young was finished by Jules Draycott.

As the second half got under way, Worksop pushed on looking for that killer second goal but with no luck until the ball broke to Amanda Young who smashed the ball into the net.

Sian Jago added a third late on giving Worksop the convincing win their hard work deserved. Player of the match was shared between Amanda Young and Samantha Badger.

Meanwhile, with one of Worksop Ladies IV team defenders being injured during the warm up the team started their match at home against Newark IV team on the back foot.

The previously seen teamwork took its time to show again and Newark took advantage of this, with a break from the halfway line scored midway through the first half.

This seemed to have a positive effect on Worksop who came together, putting more of the play into their attacking half. Lots of chances were created in the second half, many turnovers created by man of the match Ashleigh Stevenson.

Goalkeeper Jane Cartwright showed excellent keeping skills with both foot and stick preventing Newark from extending their lead.

The loss of Worksop forward Caitlin Barton to injury did not deter the team who kept the ball in their position for much of the last quarter. Despite many circle penetrations and shots on goal by Worksop the score remained 1-0 to the opposition at full time.

Worksop Ladies Masters welcomed Driffield Veterans to Worksop College for the first round of the Investec O35s Women’s Masters Trophy this Sunday.

Last year both teams made it through to the fourth round with Worksop going out to Wilmslow and Driffield losing out to Crewe Vagrants.

Caroline Robinson deft touch at the back stick put Worksop ahead before Tracy Fuller skilfully stormed into the D and calmly lifted the ball over the advancing keeper for number two. Fuller missed a penalty flick but Worksop advanced into round two.
