After 2 good results to start the season the 2nd team had a match in the sun at Claremont looking to continue their good form.
Unfortunately a slow start not helped by the pitch pulled it into a scrappy match and players started to wander from their positions and our ability to pass suffered. However despite this the finishing that was lacking in previous game was clear as we raced to a 3-0 lead at half time.
In the 2nd half the passing play was generally much improved, however poor decision making further up the pitch meant that we created far less chances than we should. A goal around 10 minutes into the 2nd half for Jersey Ladies threatened a comeback but a goal for Ella Brennand via a Jersey Ladies foot moved it to 4-1 to settle any nerves.
After this result Nomads are currently top of the 2nd division but will look for an improved team performance next week.
