Captain Sophie Swinden led by example by stepping up for her first game as the new player-manager and led Leverington Ladies to an impressive 3-1 win against a tough Ketton side.

After 20 minutes of the game, Chloe Stanborough picked out Faye Kowalewsky with a pin-point pass and after a delightful one-two with Striker Sophie Faye slotted home the opener.

With the game quickly approaching half time, Swinden took a free kick from 30 yards out, which was knocked back to her before she then took on two Ketton players and dispatched a fierce shot over the goalkeeper into the net.

Leverington went into the break with a two goal lead.

The second half was an even tougher battle, with Kowalewsky being replaced by Kayleigh Gray from the restart and Ketton changing formation looking for an equaliser.

But Leverington were playing some really good football, with Laura Dudley and Charlotte Wheatley both putting in commanding defensive displays whilst Amy Gray, playing her first game in goal, pulled off some great saves to keep the Ketton forward line out.

After impressively marshalling the centre of the pitch all game, Katie Garner went off injured along with Sophie Swinden - with the pair replaced by Abbie Somerville and Ellie Meads.

The latter quickly latched onto a through ball and drove a powerful shot into the Ketton net to make it 3-0.

Ketton still pushed forward and were rewarded with a consolation goal with two minutes remaining, but a great team performance from Leverington Ladies seen out the win.
