Ladies League Springs into Action!

March 2, 2012 | Nathan Reid

Active8 Sheffield and SHCFA’s small sided ladies spring league has got off to a flying start over the last two weeks. Seven teams have now had a least one fixture and the competitive edge is starting to kick in.

Both SUWFC’s A and B sides got off to winning starts by beating Bend it like Victoria Beckham and Handsworth Ladies respectively. It was not all bad news for Handsworth as they saw off Hallam Harriers during week 1 of the fixtures so they remain on a healthy 3 points after 2 games. Hallam rectified there first week defeat by beating Bend it like Victoria Beckham in their second game. The final two teams, Badgers FC and Leg-ends, got there campaigns underway last night in a high quality game against each other. Leg-ends came away with victory but Badgers FC had more than enough of possession and chances, one that could have easily gone either way.

We now have our 8th entry, meaning that the only team yet to play are the inventively named Bend it like Harper Beckham, who kick off against Leg-ends next week!
