Ladies 3rds 0 v 2 Nuneaton 3rds

Player of the match: Donna Harvey

The hotly anticipated match against local rivals Nuneaton started with a minutes silence in remembrance of popular Nuneaton player Nikky Winchester who was known to both teams and sadly passed away during the Summer break.

Friendships parked when the whistle was blown, the game started passionately and pacey with both sides hungry for victory. Attacking play was dominated by Atherstone in the first half with a number of opportunities failing to convert including two short corners. Nuneaton took advantage of converting a short corner into a goal to take the lead in the first half.
In the second half Nuneaton responded more strongly and the Adders team failed to get back in possession. Nuneaton scored a second cracking goal from open play sealing the victory and concluding the game.
Despite the 0-2 scoreline Atherstone demonstrated great teamwork and further improvement. Recognition should be given to Hannah Matheson, Donna Harvey, Nicky Lancaster and Harriet Townsend for great match play.
