Ladies out of Kent County Plate
Beaten by the better team
Tonbridge Angels Ladies were brought down to earth in a disappointing exit from the Kent County Plate. Their younger counterparts were sharper and fitter throughout the first half and raced into a 5-0 lead in the first half although Abigail Skilton's long-range effort in first-half injury time kept the visitors interest in the competition alive.
A much improved start to the second half was disrupted by a long stoppage to the game for a serious injury to the Phoenix captain and we wish her well in her recovery. From the restart Phoenix scored a sixth goal and never looked back, going on to win 9-1.
Team: Edwards, Foster, Syrett, Gilden, Kemp, Brett, Saxby, Smith, Skilton, James, Simpson. Subs: Coulter, Law.
