South West Women’s League
Premier Division
Callington Town 4, Bishops Lydeard 4

A LAST-MINUTE own goal denied Bishops Lydeard Ladies in a see-saw encounter away to Callington Town Ladies on Sunday.

Lydeard twice fought from a goal down to level it up at 2-2 at half time, and twice they led in the second half, with their goals coming from Nicola Brown, Amber Guy-Kemp, Holly Miller and Abi Parr.

But Eleri Griffiths, Amy Hemingway and Keri-Ann Moxom were on target for the hosts, who snatched a point in the dying seconds when a cross came off a Lydeard defender and went into the net.

The result sees Lydeard drop to fourth in the Premier Division standings, and this Sunday they travel to third-placed Marine Academy Plymouth (ko 2pm).


IN the Somerset County Women’s League, Bishops Lydeard Ladies Reserves also scored four away from home, but hosts Combe were without reply.

Jodie Dingle, Andrea Selene, Ellen Broadway and Helen Wye found the net for Lydeard.

Wellington Ladies suffered a 3-2 home defeat against Pen Mill Reserves, despite goals from Charlotte Phillips and Ashley Grabham.

Ash Rangers Ladies were unable to raise a team for the trip to Division 1 leaders Frome.

In Division 2, bottom side Hamilton were beaten 16-0 at home by Cheddar, while Porlock lost 6-2 against visitors Purnell Reserves.

This coming Sunday, Ash Rangers host Combe, Lydeard Reserves entertain Burnham United and Porlock visit Crewkerne Rangers.
