PREVIEW Plymouth Argyle Women v Oxford United Women

Women prepare for first away game

26 August 2022

Oxford United Women travel to Devon to face Plymouth Argyle Women this weekend in their second league game.

This Sunday, the 28th of August, the U’s will make the long journey down to the Manadon Sport’s Ground. Kick-off is at the slightly later than usual time of 2:30 PM. Tickets are £5 for general admission and free for Under 3’s. Tickets can be purchased through Plymouth Argyle’s website or on the gate.

It’s the Yellows’ first away game of the season, following their 2-0 opening day victory over Bridgwater United last Sunday.

Manager Liam Gilbert knows the importance of continuing with winning ways this weekend.

“We’ve worked on things this week that we’ll put into practice on Sunday and hopefully we’ll see a
Argyle finished 10th in last season’s Southern Premier Division, just one place above the relegation zone.

“No one is to be underestimated in this league. The level of quality has grown massively. If you looked at Plymouth around Christmas time, they were in the relegation zone, they really improved as the year went on. I’m sure they’ll be wanting to get back on the pitch as soon as possible after losing last weekend.”

“We can’t be complacent. Plymouth will pose different challenges to what Bridgwater did and we need to make sure we are aware of that, and we are proactive in dealing with those situations rather than be reactive.”

The U’s enjoyed playing against Argyle last year, winning 3-0 at Court Place Farm and taking all three points and a clean sheet on their travels, with a 5-0 victory.

Keeper Rose Kite believes the U’s will deliver another strong defensive performance.

“It’s really important that we keep going. We kept a clean sheet last weekend, and we need to keep that going for the rest of the season. The defenders kept the doors closed and I didn’t have much to do. It was massive for the back five’s performance” said Oxford’s shot stopper.

The U’s will travel down on Saturday, offering the squad further chance to gel as a team on and off the pitch.

“We’ve got quite a few new faces and some similar faces from last year so we’re all looking forward to bonding this weekend,” said Kite.

Oxford United Women return to home action the following Tuesday, 30th of August, to welcome visitors London Bees to Court Place Farm.

Women make it two wins from two games

29 August 2022

Oxford United Women continued their strong start to the Southern Premier League season with an excellent 2-0 victory over Plymouth Argyle Women on Sunday.

Leah Burridge scored twice, once in the second minute and once in the 53rd to send Oxford back home with all three points.

The U’s named an unchanged side from their 2-0 opening day victory over Bridgwater United, and the high spirits that followed that result were evident right from the start. Barely a minute and a half into the game and a high press led to Sarah King’s cross finding Burridge in the box to fire emphatically past Jasmine Read in the Plymouth net for her first of the season.

The Yellows didn’t show any signs of slowing down. In the 5th minute, Carly Johns’ corner was glanced just wide by the towering Riva Casley, who almost replicated her goal from a week ago. Five minutes later and more great football from the Yellows led to Haynes' first-time cross finding Daisy McLachlan whose volley flew just over the bar.


Plymouth didn’t have a sniff for the first 30 minutes due to the excellent pressing and mesmerising football played by the away side who should have been 2-0 up as Johns poked an effort just wide of the post.

Plymouth had a tame effort saved by Rose Kite on 31 minutes, which was followed by Casley’s bicycle kick being tipped just over the bar by Jasmine Read. The Plymouth keeper had had a busy day at the office already and five minutes after the restart Burridge should have had her second of the game but fired just over. Seconds later, Naomi Cole's strike rattled the left-hand post.

Finally, the second goal that Oxford deserved came. In the 53rd minute, Carly Johns let the ball roll across her body and picked out a deep, pinpoint cross to the back post. Leah Burridge obliged, sending a fantastic diving header past Read to double the lead and her tally for the afternoon.

Kite made her first difficult save of the evening with half an hour to go and Plymouth found some momentum in the last 20 minutes, and had a few chances go wide, but none that massively troubled United’s defence.
Overall it was a confident and dominant performance from the Yellows, who continued their perfect start to the season, leaving the South Coast with three deserved points and a clean sheet.

Now it’s a quick turnaround as they look to make it three from three as they host London Bees at Court Place Farm on Tuesday night.

UNITED
Kite, Stevens, Casley, Beaver, Provan, Cole, Haynes, Burridge (Wynne 90), King (Oliver, 24’ – Gray, 45’), Johns (Prescott 90), Mclachlan (Gotch, 76’)
