MATCH REPORT – Saltdean United 2 v 2 Dartford FC Women

Saltdean v DFC Women

Saltdean United 2 – 2 Dartford FC Women

Our first league game started off really well in tough conditions for both sides.

Our 2 new signings Shauni Griffiths and Kimberly Green both got on the score sheet.

Griffiths goal came after a great run on the left and her cross come shot lobbed the opposing goalkeeper.

Green had a free kick just in the opposing half had another cross come shot which left everyone standing and it ended up bouncing over the keeper’  and into the net which was very pleasing against the newly promoted team.

The second half came and Saltdean upped their game. They also had the wind in the second half.

Their opening goal was scored from a long ball over the top and their striker finished well on the half volley. Their second goal was a bit special. From about 35 yards out the number 10  just hit it and it rifled into our goal.

They didn’t have many chances but when they did they took them.

Overall it’s a good point and a fair result due to the conditions but we look to go again this week against Denham United and straighten out mistakes and bring back the 3 points.
