PREVIEW Women Welcome the League Leaders

Big game for Oxford United Women this Sunday

16 December 2021

Oxford United Women have a huge game this weekend when they welcome Ipswich Town Women to Court Place Farm (2pm)

A convincing 3-0 win against Keynsham Town moved the U’s up to second place in the Women’s National League last weekend and has set them up nicely to play the unbeaten league leaders.

Manager Liam Gilbert commented, “The girls played some really good football and were very patient when they needed to be and now we have to take that into Sunday’s game.”

Not only have Ipswich gone 11 games unbeaten, they have won all 11 with a goal difference of 37 and will pose a real threat to an in-form United side.

“We can’t wait for it, Liam told us. “Ipswich have goalscorers in many areas of the pitch and dangerous strikers but we have been strong at the back and it will be interesting to see who comes out on top.”

It should be a fantastic game of football so come along and support the U’s on Sunday afternoon at Court Place Farm

REPORT: Women Stun the Leaders

Oxford United Women 3 Ipswich Town Women 1. Full time report

19 December 2021

Oxford United Women enjoyed their best win of the season this afternoon when they became the first team to beat leaders Ipswich Town in the National League this season.

Goals from top scorer Beth Lumsden, Daisy McLachlan and Sophie Baker gave the U’s a convincing 3-1 win at Court Place Farm to keep them hot on the heels of their previously unbeaten visitors.

The U’s got off to a perfect start when they took the lead after just five minutes through Lumsden and were two goals up at the break when McClachlan punished a defensive mistake with a drive from the edge of the box.

Knowing that Ipswich would come at them after the break United got the second half off to a perfect start when Baker was fastest to react to a loose ball after a good save from the visiting keeper, and United then showed tremendous determination until Sarah Brasero-Carreira gave Ipswich renewed hope with 15 minutes to go.

However the U’s, unbeaten at home in 2021, were not to be denied a famous win: scoring as many goals in 90 minutes as Ipswich had previously conceded all season.

Manager Liam Gilbert told us

“I am so proud of the players. We worked extremely hard in the build up, we knew the way we wanted to play and I thought we showed real character. We played some good football, we always do that, but we were clinical and the result makes things really interesting now for the second half of the season.”
