Archant

March Town Ladies were unlucky to end their opening game of 2018 empty-handed.

The Hares side were beaten 2-1 by Newmarket Town in the Cambridgeshire Women’s Premiership last Sunday.

A terrific one-on-one save from goalkeeper Tori Sharpe kept March on level terms a in a goalless opening half.

Shannon Shaw then fired March ahead on the hour with her 10th goal of the season after being picked out by a terrific Chas Miller pass.

Newmarket levelled with 20 minutes to go and then snatched a late winner when the match had looked set to ended in deadlock.

March aren’t in action again until January 28 when they go to Isleham for a county cup fixture.

This Sunday it is the turn of another Fenland side – Park Ladies – to entertain Newmarket in the Cambridgeshire Women’s Premiership.

Bottom-of-the-table Park are still searching for their first points of the season after seven successive defeats.
