Tamworth 0 – 4 Stafford
Stafford 4th travelled to Tamworth on Saturday with a very changed team from previous weeks.
All started well with a goal from Bev Leng for Stafford within the first minute. Then the rain came and the conditions became more difficult to play in, slowing the pace of the ball and making it hard for both teams.
Stafford applied most of the pressure throughout the match but the Tamworth defence kept solid and whatever chances Stafford had to up their score was either saved by the opposition keeper or cleared by the Tamworth defence.
Half time score remained as 1 – 0 to Stafford.
Stafford continued to press after the break and a flurry of goals within 10 minutes saw them take the game away from the home side.
Three further goals from Maggie Neville, Dora Adams and a diving sweep into goal by Sue Harwood to make it four goals.
Stafford defence thwarted any attacks that Tamworth had throughout the match, giving no scoring opportunities.
This result moves Stafford up to 4th in their division.
