Bluebirds scored 5 at Glebe

The ladies team started their long awaited 20/21 league season away in Chislehurst to a well organised and physical Glebe womans team.

Last season saw a two way battle at the top of the league with Maidstone so from the very first whistle of the year the Bluebirds knew how important the 3pts were and they didn't disappoint.

The gate controlled the early tempo with some really slick passing and ball retention and broke the deadlock as Ashleigh Brookes beat the offside trap and slotted home.

Kara Richardson's electric pace on the wing created chance after chance and on 25 minutes she doubled the lead with a trademark finish cooly firing home after finding herself 1 on 1 with the home keeper. Ash Brrokes all but put the game to bed with her 2nd before the break giving the bluebirds a 3-0 advantage at half time.

The home team never gave up and came out with even more determination in the second half as they pressed and tried to get back into the game only for Wiktoria Bukowska to dent their ambitions with a rocket of a volley that arrowed into the top corner.(4-0 Margate)

With the game apparently in the bag the blues seemed to switch off for a crazy five minutes and momentum swung in Glebes favour,firstly a poor clearance and a goalmouth scramble saw the hosts pull one back and within minutes the gates stopper Lauren Watson was lobbed from distance and Glebe had halved the deficit. (4-2)

With 15 still to go the next goal was going to be crucial and when the ref gave Margate a free kick 25 yards out up stepped Nicole Adams with an unstoppable strike that no keeper in the league would of saved.

By full time both teams knew they had been in a match and given their all but it was Margates ladies who took the points and a deserved 5-2 win on the road.
