Fylde 2 (F) 0 - 2 Lymm 1 (F)
North West Women's Division 1
They play away, Is it going to be our day? Feeling festive, tunes were on, The first pass has been played and off it’s gone! Fylde worked well and up they pushed forward and steady, We knew they were going to try and win as they were born ready! Lots of passes across the midfield, Someone got hit and then they loudly squealed, With the ball being passed from left to right, We were able to work on getting some height. Natasha, Sally, Kelly and Mia moved the ball round the back, Everyone stopped as a toy came flying from Santa’s sack, A frisbee was thrown onto the pitch, It was time to call for the ball and make the switch. Sally R and Olivia J-H worked well at the top, Movement was good and work rate was nonstop, A disciplined team we were when we played, Thankfully no one today needed 1st aid! The game was a challenge and sadly we conceded twice, Despite our efforts we did pay the price, We battled, challenged and put some pressure on, The time ran away and then was far gone. We finish now reflecting and for the festive season, We think of what happened today reason for reason, In the new year we go again as a team in Jan We stand tall, heads held high and thanks to all who believe we can.

Chorley Phoenix 1 (F) 4 - 1 Fylde 4 (F)
North West Women's Division 3 North (Central)
This week saw the Fylde Ladies 4th Team travel away to face top of the table Chorley Phoenix 1st XI. A nervous start from Fylde resulted in a goal being conceded in the first few minutes. The opposition went on to dominate the 1st half with constant attacks and a second goal. Numerous saves made by keeper Felicity Flood-Whittle kept the hopes of the Fylde team alive. Following the regrouping at half time Fylde came out with fire in their bellies. Several attacks down the right from Amy Carter showed great promise. A solid break from the back instigated by Lauren Appleyard went down the left to birthday girl Grace Tomlinson. A short pass on to Patsy Crowther striking from the top of the D and adding herself to the scoresheet. However the experienced opposition were clinical in converting breaking attacks into 2 further goals. Despite the loss some great hockey and team play was demonstrated across the pitch. The team enter the Christmas break mid table, foundations built in the first half of the season ready for the New Year.
