Cup frustration for Bungay
Royston Town Ladies 2, Bungay Town Ladies 1
Another frustrating week for Bungay in the League Cup.
They went down to a side that were second best for most of the game and once again lack of clear-cut chances and silly mistakes cost the team dearly.
After a long trip to Hertfordshire, Bungay started very well and didnt allow Royston any of the ball within the first fifteen minutes. They were unlucky not to go ahead when Lauren Mickleburgh’s first-time effort just went over the bar and a number of other chances went begging.
In similar fashion to previous weeks two soft goals were awarded to the other team, which meant despite being on top for the majority of the half, Bungay went into the break 2-0 down.

Half time saw a number of changes, but much to Bungay’s dissappointment Jo Oakley sustained a knee injury and was unable to continue leaving Bungay down to ten with a least twenty to play. The spirit of the team did however shine through and a good ball from Leo Daulby put Michelle Stanborough through who calmy chipped the keeper to give Bungay some hope.
These were Royston’s best moments and a player-of-the-match performance from Remy Dowe kept the score at a respectable level.
