Dagenham & Redbridge 1 London Womens 0
Sunday, 19 September 2004
The Daggers continued their unbeaten run and maximum points against London Women at Fairlop Oak. On paper from previous season's most people thought the points was in the bag but not Brett Sherwin. This season London look stronger and have brought in some good players. This showed as the Daggers played in a hard fought match with Kelly Stock scoring the winner just before the hour. Sherwin made a couple of changes from last week with Joanne McLean on the bench making way for Lindsay Sibbons and Becky Garner was replaced by Becky Allen. Sara Sinclair who has re-signed for the Daggers was unable to play as her registration starts next weekend.
The Daggers were playing into the wind for the opening period and had two good chances to take the lead when Kelly Stock's right foot shot fired over the bar. The London goalkeeper was called into action twice when Sarah Matson had two one on one's with the keeper but fired her efforts straight at the visiting keeper.
The winning goal arrived on 58 minutes when a shot from Lindsay Sibbons rebounded in the path of Stock and her turn and shot went straight into the corner of the net. Four minutes later the Daggers went close to doubling their lead Stock's pass found Sherwin and her shot hit the cross bar.
Team: Michelle Bridgeman, Laura Watson, Becky Allen, Angela Robinson (Joanne MacLean 55mins), Georgina Sibbons, Michelle Sherwin, Lindsay Sibbons, Nicola Burgess, Elisha Downer (Lucy White 55mins), Kelly Stock, Sarah Matson.
