Ladies' 1s played their first friendly of the new season against a Wimbledon side featuring Gold medallist Crista Cullen. The match was played at a very high intensity and certainly was a fantastic first pre-season game to play. They lost 5-1 but there were a huge number of positive areas which shows good promise for the season ahead. Lucy Stewart in particular was on fine form, showing great strength and skill in the midfield. Their goal came from a lovely deft touch from Annie Denly off a long through ball. The Ladies 1s National League campaign starts on 23 September.
