MCWFC sign Jane Ross

Manchester City Women have made their first signing ahead of the 2016 campaign with Scottish International Jane Ross joining the club: reports:

The 26-year-old forward joins the club from Vittsjo GIK, and has previously featured for Glasgow City and Paisley Saints.

After helping the Scottish outfit to six league titles, three Scottish Cups, three League Cups and a place in the last 16 of the Champions League – as well as scooping the Player of the Season Award in her debut campaign – she made the decision to turn professional in 2013 and made the move to Sweden, where she netted 51 goals in 82 games.

Having tasted success before, Ross is hoping to add to her collection of medals with Nick Cushing‘s side.

Everton Ladies 0 Reading Women 2 Match Report

With the WSL 2 promotion places already wrapped up the meeting at Widnes between Everton Ladies and Reading Women was merely about finishing as best of the rest for the hosts and the
league title for the visitors.

Everton started the brighter of the two teams and had a Paige Williams free kick pushed round the post by Reading goalkeeper Grace Moloney after 10 minutes. However Reading reacted and created several early openings themselves.

The first goal came on 18 minutes after Watts raced onto a ball down the left hand side, cut the ball back from the touch line to Walkley whose first time touch laid the ball off to Rowe who drilled the ball into the bottom left hand corner off the inside of the post.

Reading were on top for the remainder of the first half but aside from a long range Roche effort tipped round the post neither side created much of an opening despite the openness of the game.

In the second half there were fewer chances as both teams seemed to lack idea and composure in the final third. Everton pushed for a leveller in the late stages of the game but Reading secured the points in the 90th minute when Helen Ward finished with a lovely lob over Levell.
