Angels ahead with derby win

ASHINGTON Ladies cemented pole position at the top of the table following a comfortable win despite a below par performance against Bedlington Town at Pegswood Welfare on Sunday.

Danny Clasper opened the scoring after ten minutes for the Angels with a shot from inside the box before Rebecca Caldow hit the bar and Stacey Naples shot narrowly wide.

In the second half it was more of the same with Ashington on top but chances few and far between.

Substitute Kristie Fenwick drilled home the second goal ten minutes from time and Clasper added a third five minutes later with a well taken effort to seal the result.

Ashington Ladies: Powell, Sayer, Kavanagh, Hogg, Hooper, Caldow, Naples, Murphy, Clasper, Latto, Wright. Subs: Tighe, Fenwick, Betts.
