Brandon hit top spot after gr-eight win

BRANDON LADIES had a comfortable 8-1 victory over Shotley Rose, taking them to top spot in the Suffolk Women’s League.

After early Brandon pressure Shotley scored with their first attack but they responded well scoring at regular intervals through Forshaw (3) and Brame.

Credit to Shotley who continued to work hard but could not prevent further strikes from Forshaw, Brame, Love and Wolverton. Walton worked tirelessly in midfield for Brandon giving the visitors few opportunities with the defence mopping up well when needed.

This victory has put Brandon in a great position going into the last few games of the season.

It really is in their hands.

Great battling on the right by Ellesse, winning the ball and crossing to find Millie, who finished well on 21 minutes to give the Lasses a well-deserved lead.

BRANDON LASSES U13 confirmed their place as league champions with a hard-fought away victory at Kirton Kestrels.

Zawiasa, O’Malley, Slater and Jamgochian worked tirelessly in a crowed midfield feeding Masters up front. Brandon took the lead from an Oderbrecht corner tucked in at the far post by Masters.

She then scored her second late in the half breaking from her own half and then tucking the ball away. Zawiasa made it three with a lovely finish after picking the ball up wide left for a half-time score of 3-0.

Kirton worked hard throughout the game and changed things at half-time with good effect pulling a goal back but the Lasses responded well with further goals.

Jamgochian produced a good finish across the keeper and Master completed a well deserved hat-trick after good work in midfield by O’Malley. Well done to whole squad for a great achievement.

Now they will be aiming to finish the season off in style.
