Reserves taste defeat to Actonians reserves after battling on with just 10 players for whole contest

Tower Hamlets women produced a shock in the John Greenacre Memorial Trophy last weekend by beating Regents Park Rangers 3-1.

Rangers, from the division above the Cows, initially took the lead, yet the hosts hit back to seal an excellent victory.

Hamlets started strongly and were unfortunate to go behind when a Rangers striker scored after some fine footwork.

Cows failed to let the early disappointment affect them as they equalised when Harriett Sim turned the ball home following a corner.

While the first half ended level, Hamlets had enjoyed the lions share of possession and looked in control.

A few tactical changes, including moving debutant Kaydee King from right-back to central midfield, gave Cows more impetus.

It was a masterstroke with King finding the net shortly afterwards to hand the hosts a 2-1 lead.

Hamlets captain Natalie Keating rounded off the scoring with a fine long-range effort to cap a great day for the Cows.

King’s fellow debutant Sophie Lenihan impressed on the left wing and Bex Smith shone in defence.

The reserves were unlucky to exit the cup following a 1-0 defeat to Actonians reserves, especially after playing the whole 90 minutes with just 10 players.

Cows first team take on Hackney in the league this weekend while the reserves visit South London in another cup tie.
