PREVIEW Women Host Argyle

OUWFC look to earn back-to-back wins

15 September 2023

Oxford United Women welcome Plymouth Argyle Women in the FAWNL Southern Premier Division on Sunday 17th of August.

Kick off is at 2PM at Court Place Farm, with tickets available on the gate. Tickets are priced at £7 for Adults, £3.50 for Concessions, £1 for Under 16s and FREE for Under 5s.

The U’s look to build on an impressive and important first win of the season last weekend, as they cruised past Chatham Town Women with a 4-0 win, with four different attackers getting on the scoresheet.

Argyle also won their first game of the season last time out, beating Cheltenham Town Women 3-2.

Winger Izzy Cook spoke to us after scoring her first United goal last weekend

“It’s always nice to score and getting the third for the team was really great. We had a brilliant performance considering the start to the season and everything we’ve had to go through as a club so far.

“We did really well to get the win and it was nice to finally get the three points we deserve.

“Plymouth have just come off a win so they’re going to be up for it and we’re going to be ready and raring to go.

“This year we’re a brand new team and it’s going to take time for us to learn to work together and build relationships on and off the pitch.

“We’re getting there and hopefully last week was just the start of a new winning streak at Court Place Farm".

Five Star Women Beat Plymouth

OUWFC 5-0 Plymouth Argyle Women. Match Report.

17 September 2023

Oxford United Women beat Plymouth Argyle Women 5-0 at Court Place Farm this afternoon to earn back-to-back victories.

Izzy Cook and Taome Oliver gave the U’s a 2-0 lead at the break, before Zoe Barratt, Cook and Sarah King made it three, four and five in the second period.

Plymouth like Oxford, fresh off the back of their first win of the season, started well and stopped United from creating anything dangerous for at least the first 15 minutes; Paris Sercombe the first keeper called into action, coming out and sliding in to make an important clearance as Ellie Sara broke through the middle.

The Yellows stepped it up and the pressure told; Jaime Gotch had three headed chances narrowly fly wide, and Leah Burridge saw her curling effort tipped over excellently by Jasmine Read.

Within that spell, and in very quick succession, Lucy Hack received two yellow cards for late challenges on the U’s wingers Sarah King and Cook, and Argyle were down to ten women.

From that point on there was only one outcome, and minutes after seeing her effort come off the inside of the post and roll across the line, Cook had her second goal in as many games.

Space opened up and Lily Stevens exploited it, fizzing the ball into Cook who rifled the ball past Read at the near post to open the scoring.

In honesty, it could’ve been four or five at half time – King saw her thunderous effort rattle the crossbar and bounce on (or with goal line technology possibly over) the line.

Five minutes before half time, the U’s did double their lead. Oliver, returning to the side at left back as Shelly Provan was rested, broke forward and was fed by Stevens again before firing her effort into the bottom right corner.

A strong half, aided by the Plymouth dismissal, but when United get going moving forward the pace and technique is really exciting to watch.

The U’s didn’t hesitate in capitalising on the player advantage and scored a fourth and fifth in quick succession.

First Barratt latched on to a beautiful through ball from Kate Wiseman to tuck her home her 6th of the season in the 51st minute before Cook doubled her tally for the day, nicking the ball back high up the pitch and slotting home a fourth.

King then rounded off a five star performance with an excellent strike in the 67th minute, arrowed into the top right corner.

Jenna Legg made her first appearance of the season from the bench, returning from injury to see out the final fifteen minutes.

The U’s played some scintillating football throughout the afternoon and thoroughly deserved the win.

Now, a big week of training before an away trip to last seasons’ title rivals Portsmouth Women on Sunday 24th September.

LINEUP: Sercombe, Oliver, Wellesley-Smith, Gotch (Sherwood 66’), Hoare, Wiseman, Stevens, Burridge (Legg 75’), Cook (Trinci 75’), Barratt (Swaby 78’), King
