(Briggs 12 Hepple 44)
Watford FC Women 1
(Fyfe 59)
FA Womens Championship

I finally ticked off a competitive game at Maiden Castle, with my first visit here since the Newcastle United open training days during the Keegan era. 
Durham Women looked very impressive going two goals up in the first half, before the visitors pulled a goal back and set up a grandstand finish, with the Wildcats holding on win their opening fixture of the season.

Belmont United 1
(Bojang 39)
Birtley Town Development 2
(Graham 88 Winthorpe 88)
Wearside League Division 3

An entertaining and very competitive match saw the hosts take a first half lead, then after being reduced to ten minute in the 60th, spend the game holding on to their slender lead. The match was won with two goals within a minute by the two Birtley substitutes, the winner was a terrific Paolo Di Canio style volley.

Chester-le-Street Amazon Women 2
(Lucy 37 Jen 51)
Gateshead FC Ladies 3
(Black 45+1 OG 72 Atkinson 83pen)
Durham Women FA Division 1

The Heed Lasses kept up their 100% league record, but were slightly fortunate to grab the three points. The Amazons played well and it took an unfortunate own goal and a controversial penalty to clinch victory.
