Ilfracombe Ladies on the up

Joseph Bulmer

Ilfracombe Ladies are definitely on the up.

They produced the shock result of the week in Division 1 of the Westward Developments Devon Women’s League on Sarturday, beating promotion-chasing Windmill Ladies 8-0.

Despite their high league position, Windmill could only muster 10 players and the heavy conditions took their toll as they leaked goals at regular intervals.

Donna Adams (2), Liz Middleton, Emma Jones, Hannah Dibble, Marie Dibble, Amy Terry and Jordan Davey were the Ilfracombe scorers.

Under the new management of Barbara Tarrant and with new coaches Steve Boni and Kevin Tarrant, Combe have put a shaky start to the season behind them and are now moving steadily up the table.

Recent results have given them five wins and three draws from their 13 matches.

The search for sponsorship is also paying off, with new socks being provided by Geoff and Sharon Burkinshaw of the Wentworth House Hotel. Anyone who could help with new kit or new players who would like to join them for next season would be welcomed and are asked to contact Kevin or Barbara on 01271 867444.
