Arsenal Ladies development team have taken a huge step towards winning the League ( Southern Division). They won 2-0 away at London Bees with a brace from Evie Clarke. They are in the lead with 37 points and a +45 goal difference. Their final game will be on Sunday at Millwall. The Lionesses have 28 points a +18 goal difference and will play Arsenal at home, Chelsea away and Reading away.
Arsenal Ladies development therefore need a point on Sunday or should they loose, hope that Chelsea or Reading take points from the Lionesses or that the Lionesses don’t catch up on the goal difference.
The girls will also play the FA WSL Development League Cup final on Saturday the 31st of May at Sutton Coldfield against Liverpool Ladies development team. Their players got a few first team outing recently due to the unusual amount of injuries to their first team players.
Tonight’s team was :
Chelsea Coles, Leigh-anne Robe Vyan Sampson Meg Ryan Phillpa Cowley, Frances Steele Taome Oliver Carla Humphrey, Alice Hassall Evie Clarke Bianca Bragg
Sub used : Abigail Mills, Alysha Stojko-Down
Evie scored her first goal from a long ball that went past Bees center back for a one on one finish. Her second ball came from the quick free kick on the edge of the area played by Bianca and she hit the ball in the top left corner.
Overall a competitive and entertaining game for the girls and much better performance than 2 weeks ago when they lost at home to the Bees.
