Our Women’s final game of the season – and the 14th game in 9 weeks – saw a squad decimated by injuries travel across the Mersey to face an energetic Wirral Phoenix side. After a strong, competitive start, the opener for the hosts saw them take control and hold a 4-0 lead at half-time.
The women refocused and reorganised, and put in a superb performance in the second half. Injuries not only reduced the women to 10, but saw keeper Eva Boyle put in a sterling shift up front. Not only did they not concede, but also scored the only goal through Hannah Brookfield.
