It’s Lorna doom!

London Colney 0 Manford Way Ladies 1

MANFORD Way Ladies battled hard to see off London Colney and rip up their unbeaten record in the process.

Playing positive football from the start, Manford secured their first win of the season and could easily have been three or four goals up in the first half.

Manford have lost concentration at the start of the second half in several games but not this time and they continued to play good football, much of it instigated by player-of-the-match Vicky Staples from midfield.

They were rewarded with a goal 15 minutes in when Anna Michael's free kick found Lorna Estherby's head and the ball looped over the advancing Colney goalkeeper's head.

London Colney had a shot cleared off the line by Laura Luxton and began to press for the equaliser but Manford held firm to record a notable triumph.

Manford Way Ladies: Pawley, K Staples, V Staples, Michaels, Farrell (Collins) (Lifshack), Luxton, Estherby, Carter, Stephanou, Grafton, Curtis.
