Wapping’s women got the new season off to a winning start with a 1-0 victory at Norwich City.

They started slowly after the long trip, as they adjusted to a springy pitch, but Aisling McKeon and Siobhan Stewart worked hard in midfield to help them settle.

Kate O'Sullivan looked lively in attack, but Wapping struggled to threaten and the match remained goalless at the break.

The deadlock was broken in the second half, though, when lovely play on the right from Lucia Corry led to Katelynn Roganowicz driving the base line and flicking past the City keeper.

Wapping dominated for the rest of the half, winning a host of short corners, but O'Sullivan had an effort ruled out by the umpires.

Kate Brannelly made a late smothering stop to deny the home side, as Wapping held on for the points and McKeon and O'Sullivan shared player of the match honours.
