North Devon Gazette

Braunton FC and SAS Women’s Teams braved the wrath of storm Franklin on Sunday to play a lively encounter in the Women’s North Devon Football League. The match was dedicated to the Football V Homophobia campaign 2022.Â
Â
The Braunton squad gave debuts to 3 players, Caz Sunley, Jo Morgan and Kelly Kay. The team included players from their teens to their 60s, demonstrating that football in North Devon is for everyone.Â
Â
Striker Alice Rivans set the tone for the game, scoring in the opening minute. She was awarded player of the day after netting a further three goals. Hannah Cooper scored twice, April Oliver netted once and 17 year-old Asha Holdsworth scored her first senior league goal. The 9-0 scoreline included an own goal conceded from a brilliant corner by Jodie Ellis.Â

The win placed Braunton Women’s Team at the top of the Women’s North Devon football League with champions Fremington Women coming next.Â
