Bedford 'Bolts' put in Lightning performance against the Welwyn Pegasus Azures Women

Bedford Ladies & Girls FC Development team, 'The Bolts' play in the third division of The Beds & Herts Women's Football League. It is their first year playing at Ladies level.

The team travelled to Welwyn on Sunday 2nd December for what promised to be a very competitive match between two top of the table teams.

Having suffered a few injuries 'The Bedford Bolts' started with only 10 players.

Undeterred Cayleigh Jackson kept her cool in front of goal following a great pass in from Captain, Jess Bunnage, opening the scoring at 8 minutes into the match. This was followed quickly by another Jess put in to Susannah Hall who scored the second goal of the match, and in her debut appearance, but unfortunately Susannah received an injury in the process which saw her unable to continue the match.

After the restart Welwyn found the target but were denied by the Bedford goalie, Alex Shore. Her experience in her debut appearance for the Bedford Ladies First Team the previous week obviously fresh in her mind. Alex put in a great performance but with the opposition keeping up the pressure they were eventually rewarded with a goal putting the scoreline at 2-1.

The Bedford Bolts dug in with Paige Abraham working hard on the wing and creating lots of chances. The team continued to press and Jo Makin stormed forward to receive a sweet diagonal through ball from Katy Peters allowing Jo to find the back of the net. Welwyn responded with a neat finish into goal, leaving the half time score at 3-2 to 'The Bolts'.

John Frost, 'The Bolts' coach asked the ladies to stick to the game plan and continue with the same commitment in the second half and he was not disappointed.

Bex Lenton in midfield was covering every blade of grass on the pitch and commanding her area ensuring the team retained possession. Added to which Lauren Cotterell caused lots of problems for Welwyn Ladies with her forward running and pressing high. Holly Wisson won the ball and played an accurately weighted pass for Jess Bunnage to chase, resulting in a confident finish and putting the scoreline at 4-2.

With a great team effort the Bedford Ladies played out the game creating more chances and keeping the opposition at bay but could not find any more goals.

A very exciting, competent and creative display from 'The Bolts' ended the match with a final score of 4-2.
