PREVIEW Oxford United Women v Gillingham Women

Women get set for first game of the National League season

12 August 2021

Oxford United Women begin their Women’s National League campaign this Sunday (2pm KO) when they welcome Gillingham to Court Place Farm.

The two sides also met on the opening day of last season with the U’s running out 1-0 winners thanks to a Carly Johns goal.

TEAM NEWS

Looking ahead to the season opener United boss Liam Gilbert said: “We want to push ourselves as high up as we can.

“It’s the trend we have set and it’s something I expect us to carry on.

“I have been really happy. We have brought in quite a few new players and they’ve bought into what we want to do.”

With seven new signings adding to an already strong squad Gilbert admits he has good selection problems ahead of Sunday.

“I haven’t got a clue who I am going to start at the weekend, lucky me, lucky us.”

Match Reports

Women Start Season With a Win

Oxford United Women 2 Gilingham Women 0. Full time report

15 August 2021

Oxford United Women kicked off their new season in the National League with an excellent 2-0 win against Gillingham this afternoon

A Sarah King goal in the first half and a header from defender Riva Casley after the break were enough to get the new-look U’s off to a flying start at Court Place Farm.

United settled fastest and had the first chance after 20 minutes when Emily Wallace drilled a cross in but it was just out of the reach of the dangerous King, arriving in the box.

King then opened the scoring 10 minutes before the break when Hannah Mackenzie stepped forward and lofted a ball behind the Gillingham defence and King ran on and delicately lifted the ball over the keeper.

United could have doubled their lead in added time following a huge scramble in the Gillingham penalty area at a corner but nobody in yellow could force the ball in.

The second half followed a similar pattern to the first. Lily Stevens went close from a Wallace cut back as United looked to make the game safe but it wasn’t until seven minutes from time that they got their second goal when Casley headed home from a Lauren Haynes corner.

A very solid start to the league campaign for United

United: Kite, Alexander, Casley, MacKenzie (Williams 86), Wallace (Grove 69), Sims, Haynes, Hines, King, McLachlan (Lumsden 46), Stevens (Baker 74).
