City of Peterborough Ladies 1, Lowestoft Ladies 3

LOWESTOFT started the new campaign with a trip to Peterborough with the team all keen for a return to the East Premier League as their end of season target.

Making her league debut for Lowestoft Ladies, Julie Gowland converted the visitors' first goal after some tireless work from Chloe McMorran and Charlotte Holland down the right, found Gowland on top of the D to sweep home the first goal.

It wasn't long before the lead was doubled as Nic Pollard forced her way down the left wing, supported by Pickles, Gowland and Charlotte Bond.

Pollard evaded the tackles and squeezed the ball home from the tightest of angles, frustrating the home team's defence.

Lowestoft finished the half with another goal from Pollard, again getting the vital touch through a very busy Peterborough defence.

The second half saw Peterbrough attack the game more, but many opportunities of getting out of their defensive area were thwarted by Izzy Rothon on the right, and the persistence of McMorran in midfield.

Peterbourgh did score a consolation goal with a well struck short corner, which saw the ball squeeze through the tiniest gap to offer them a glimmer of hope.

Lowestoft's player of the match was McMorran for her tireless display in the midfield.

Lowestoft Ladies II 3, Castaways 1

THIS was a superb start to the season for Lowestoft Ladies second team.

With a driving midfield consisting of Jo Lockwood, Sophie O'Neill, Harriette Goldspink and Lauren Ayers piling the pressure on the Castaways midfield pushing the ball into their half of the pitch for the majority of the first half it was only a matter of time before the cracking forwards Abbey Child, Sarah Rodgers and Hannah Davey created the opportunities.

So much so that Child and Rodgers both scored before the break to make it 2-0 at half time.

Despite conceding a goal, the Lowestoft players didn't let their heads drop and the team really pulled together for the last few minutes as Rodgers added to her own tally to complete the scoring. Player of the match: Gracey Lawrence.

Lowestoft Ladies IV 1, Christchurch II 1

IN this their first game in the Suffolk Ladies League Division 1 for the newly formed Lowestoft Ladies fourth team against Christchurch second team, the girls produced an excellent game.

This was a big step up for the girls from the development league last season.

But despite this the team went out strong and finished with a creditable 1-1 draw. PoM: Lizzie

Loddon Ladies III 0, Lowestoft Railway Ladies II 2

RAILWAY travelled to Loddon for their opening league match of the season hoping for a win.

They started with confidence and soon had the ball deep in to the Loddon half causing the home side to defend in numbers.

The Railway back four of Emily, Sharon, Sue and Emma were alert to the danger and soon fed the ball back up the pitch.

Railway continued to attack with Jo in particular having several shots at goal culminating in a fine strike, which the Loddon keeper had no chance of stopping.

After the break, the Railway midfield gradually took control of the game with Lauren producing some skilful moves.

Railway's second goal came when Jess made a powerful run at the Loddon defence and slipped the ball to a waiting Claire who took a superb shot from a tight angle. 121 Driving School PoM: Emily.
