Report: Rovers Ladies 5 Guiseley Vixens 1

Natasha Flint scored her 30th league goal of the season

5 May 2019

Rovers finished off the league season in style, beating Guiseley Vixens 5-1 at Bamber Bridge.

Saffron Jordan and Natasha Flint both scored twice, with Natasha Fenton adding the other goal, in what was a comfortable afternoon for Gemma Donnelly’s side.

Lynda Shepherd was given a guard of honour on her final league appearance for the Blues.

It took just five minutes for Rovers to open the scoring - Jordan clinically finished in the box.Her strike partner added a second on 13 minutes, Flint acrobatically volleying Lagan Makin’s cross into the back of the net for number two.

And Flint grabbed a brace when she rounded the keeper after being played in by Holbrook.

Fenton scored her second goal in as many games, heading in Holbrook’s corner before the break.

Chances were few and far between in the second-half. Fenton’s turned provider to cross for Alex Taylor, but her header was well saved by the legs of Bethan Davies.

At the other end, Guiseley scored with their first attempt on goal. Charlotte Gill curled in a free-kick from 25 yards out.

Jordan netted her 32nd league goal of the season – the most in the division – before the end, beating the offside trap before chipping Davies, to ensure the champions recorded a 23rd win out of 24 league games.

Next up is Thursday night’s Lancashire Challenge Cup Final against Fylde Ladies at Leyland, (7:30pm).
