Newark Town Ladies get 2-2 draw against Nottingham Trent University in Nottinghamshire Girls and Ladies Football League Division One contest

IT WAS a tough game at home against Nottingham Trent University that saw Newark Town Ladies scrape a 2-2 draw in their Nottinghamshire Girls and Ladies Football League Division One fixture.

Julie Roberts' side welcomed the fellow league contenders to the YMCA Activity Village which saw around 50 spectators watch the game.

Both sides had the same player score twice as the defensive factions of the teams struggled to keep up.

Connie Forman made it look easy with her brace as she tapped both goals in nonchalantly.

Her first goal beat three defenders as she passed to Sophie Packer who immediately returned the favour before Forman converted.

At the other end, Lana Wearne hit a nice goal from the edge of the box as the ball sailed high above Alex Parker and into the back of the net.

Wearne hit her second goal and although Parker initially got hands onto the ball, it was fumbled into the net.

Forman then rose to the challenge to again tie the game.

Forman's speed, calmness, and accuracy caused Nottingham Trent's defence all manner of problems.

Forman ran through the middle of two defenders, rounded the keeper, and calmly placed the ball into the netting in what was a classy goal.

It was a close game between both sides but The Blue Army were unlucky not to get three points.

Chloe Parr who had played earlier in the day for the club's development side came off the bench for the team and played in several positions.

Utility player Parr had been instrumental in helping the development team achieve a 4-4 draw against West Bridgford Colts where she scored two goals.

Newark Ladies sit at the top of the table in their division and will next travel to Hucknall Town on Sunday (kick-off 10.30am).
