On a day of changeable weather Bishop Auckland Ladies Development squad put in a consistent performance that lead to their first hard earned win of the season.
A clinical 4 goal haul from debutant Katie Huntington was a key factor in the win for Bishop Auckland with her first goal coming within the first few minutes of the match putting the two blues on the front foot.
The overall play from Bishop was a real step up from their previous match letting the team dominate position and create numerous chances with the full squad of 16 players being utilised, with each one contributing to the win.
A worrying ankle injury to captain Fay Burn, who had been dictating the play, was a cause for concern, but after taking time to recover managed to shake it off.
In the meantime box to box number 8 Sam Moody kept stability through the middle aided by Dani Stephenson who deputised at centre midfield dropping back from striker. The Bishop defence kept a disciplined back line marshalled from goal by Ash Kell who got her first clean sheet of the season. Emily Eggert scored a lovely lob with the outside of the foot to add to the 4 goals from Katy, with a goal from Dani and and Sophie Mitton to take the teams tally to 7 making the final score 7-0 to Bishop Auckland.
