Ladies secure a place in semi-final

Alfreton Ladies were back in action this week in the Challenge Cup quarter-final.

Alfreton started the strongest and within minutes created two or three good chances. Ashbourne grew into the game and there were some strong tackles from both sides.

Then, in the 28th minute, Warrender picked up the ball from a pass by Maxted and took on an Ashbourne left back and she fired home to make it 1-0.

The game carried on in a similar vein towards half time when Alfreton had an attack that broke down, and an Ashbourne counter-attack made it 1-1 at the break.

Alfreton stepped up their game and put Ashbourne under pressure. Alfreton won a penalty which was missed but the winner came from Stevenson’s delightful chip on 81 minutes.

Alfreton are looking for a goalkeeper for the second half of the season. If you interested, phone 07880 319380.
