Excellent team performance from girls

Belper Town Girls under 15s earned a fine 3-1 win over Ashbourne Aztecs Girls U15s on Saturday.

An excellent team performance by the whole squad of 16 led to this opening day win.

Despite the absence of their first choice goalkeeper, Belper restricted Ashbourne to just one goal.

Meanwhile Elyse Fearnley scored two goals from through balls by Anna McKay with Lucy Moss confirming the result by turning in a superb corner from Elyse Fearnley.

The result justified Belper’s dominance, and at times, slick passing game. Perhaps Belper could have had a more comfortable win had some good opportunities been taken, particularly in the first half. That said, the coaching staff were extremely pleased with the attitude and performance, which bodes well for the season.
