Allen strikes to see off plucky students from Loughborough.
Our ladies team made it back-to-back wins in the FA Women’s Premier League as a second half strike from Emma Allen helped them to a 1-0 success over high-flying Loughborough Students at Kirklington Road this afternoon.
The midfielder pounced in the 55th minute of the game to give the Stagettes maximum points for the second weekend running after their win over lowly Curzon Ashton last time out.
The Stagettes remain in 10th position in the league table, but widen the gap over second-bottom Steel City Wanderers to nine points ahead of next weekend’s trip to second-placed Loughborough Foxes.
Team: Gascoyne, Braithwaite, Bodle (Mullen), Gelson, Davis, Flood, Walton, Allen, Douglas, Watton, Webster (Kiernan).
