The youngsters travelled to Weetwood with an inexperienced squad, no goalkeeper and several players out with injuries.

However, they stepped-up to meet the challenge with Rosie Mills dominating midfield and Millie Brierley and Sophie Holland both shining in attack and scoring fantastic goals.

Lauren Wood made some great runs down the right and was unlucky not to score, Thea Godson and Kate Eley were excellent in defence and Lorna Godson gave up her own opportunity to play outfield for the B team to play in goal.
