Harriers Ladies got their 2019 underway with a 4-2 victory on Sunday.
The Ladies travelled to face Kingfisher, who they had already played twice in league and cup action this season, winning 5-0 and 4-1 respectively.
Due to a number of players being unavailable, Ladies manager James Astle had to rotate his team and utilise his squad’s versatility to play a number of players in unfamiliar positions.
Kingfisher opened the scoring with 15 minutes played – a free kick from just outside the box was lifted over the wall and keeper, and in.
On a difficult surface, Harriers struggled to create chances, but drew level via Alex Nicklin – mopping up after a goalkeeping error.
Harriers grabbed their second soon afterwards – Anne Johnson blasted home to put her team ahead.
In what became an entertaining encounter, Kingfisher equalised after working their way back into the game, but just before half time, Kirsty Roberts finished off a good passing move for Harriers.
In the second half, Harriers tried to step the tempo up as Kingfisher looked to be tiring – a fourth came through Alex Nicklin with a shot from the edge of the box to seal an important three points.
