AFC Rushden & Diamonds Ladies 0 Northampton Town Ladies 7

On a hot Sunday afternoon at Bozeat, AFC Rushden & Diamonds Ladies felt the full force of going up a division when they ended up losing 0 – 7 to a very strong Northampton side. With six goals coming in the first half it looked very much like one-way traffic, with Diamonds struggling to keep possession and create very few chances going forward.

Diamonds Ladies managed to stem the flow of goals in the second half, and carved out several chances to score themselves, however Northampton Ladies found the net in the final minutes to finish the game off to run out 7 – 0 winners after an excellent team performance.
