Crawley Wasps LFC – Under-16s begin busy April with victory

Crawley Wasps’ Under-16s – 2017-18

Ellie Livingstone scored twice as Crawley Wasps Under-16s came from behind to beat Ringmer Rovers 4-1 last Tuesday.

The talented teenagers are currently in the middle of a hectic April, playing nine matches in 26 days to catch up following postponements.

On a sticky pitch at Ewhurst Playing Fields in Ifield, Ringmer took the lead when they bundled the ball in from a corner.

But Wasps responded with captain Chanelle Gainsford lobbing the keeper from long range to equalise, before Livingstone latched on to a loose ball in the box to make it 2-1 by half time.

After the break, Wasps continued to push forwards and Livingstone managed to score her second direct from a corner.

Ringmer did not give up though and the Wasps defence needed to be strong to repel them.

The game was made truly safe with 15 minutes to play, when substitute Ella Sinden chased down what most would see as a lost cause, forcing a mistake from the goalkeeper to score her first Wasps goal.

Chole Bosher was named the Thales player of the match.

On Sunday, Wasps reserves were beaten 4-1 in the South East Counties Premier Division by Meridian. Rosanne Fine netted the goal.

Wasps’ Development Squad, the ladies third team, were beaten 9-0 by Newhaven, who have won all 15 of their matches this season in the Sussex Women’s League.

Wasps’ first team saw their away game at Watford LFC Development postponed after the hosts pulled out.

They could potentially win the London & South East Premier Division title this Sunday, if they beat Eastbourne Town (kick off 2.30pm at Steyning Town FC) and the clash between the two sides below them ends in a draw.
