    Tonbridge Angels Ladies’ match at Castle Colts last Sunday was postponed, allowing a well-deserved break after a promising start to the season.

    The team’s debut in Kent Division One has seen them collect nine points from four games, all on home turf at Tonbridge Farm.

    Free-scoring

    Manager Dan Couldridge says the team have been in free-scoring form. Their three wins have come from scorelines of 5-1, 6-3 and 10-2.

    Rebecca Janes scored two hat-tricks in the opening two matches, but in her absence Abigail Skilton scored six of the goals against Aylesford Reserves to take her tally for the season to seven.

    Couldridge admits that a 4-0 defeat against favourites Maidstone United proved a blot on an otherwise great start to the season. But it was still a big improvement on the corresponding fixture in the pre-season friendlies.

    Tonbridge are now sitting second in Kent Division One but are switching their attentions to prepare for cup action on Sunday.

    The opposition is Phoenix Sports Under-18s, who are playing their first senior match having finished second in the Essex County Girls League last season. The match starts at noon in Crayford.
