All three of Reigate Women FC’s squads were in action in December, in the second weekend of the new Surrey FA Women’s Flexible League.
RWFC Lionesses played their first away fixture, travelling to south-west London to take on Sheen Mounties. The Lionesses finished up 2-1 winners, with both goals scored by Becky Keogh, although Jess Dorman was unlucky with her shot hitting the crossbar. The win propelled the Lionesses to the top of the league, as the only team to have the maximum six points from their first two games.
At Priory Park, the RWFC Tigresses played their second club derby in a row, this time taking on the RWFC Panthers, who were making their league debut. It was a close game in the first half, with the Panthers unlucky to go a goal behind when a goal mouth scramble ended in an own goal. They recovered quickly, with Becca Nesbitt scoring an equaliser before halftime. In the second half, Holly Stroud and Zoe Perkin both scored for the Tigresses, before Stroud got her second, taking the RWFC Tigresses to a 4-1 win.
The third round of the league’s fixtures will be played on Sunday 13 January 2019.
The competition is made up of seven-a-side games between teams across the county, with matches on the second Sunday of each month.
Reigate Women FC was founded in September 2017, and is open to new players, both novices and those who are returning to the game. Recreational sessions are held on Sundays at Reigate School – details on the club’s website (link below).
