Argyle Ladies in confident mood ahead of final pre-season outing

PLYMOUTH Argyle Ladies go into their last pre-season game at Poole Town on Sunday in a confident mood after winning their four previous games.

They have beaten a Royal Navy representative team 9-1, Exeter City 8-3, Bishops Lydeard 8-0 and a Bristol City X1 7-1.

Manager Dave Leonard knows that pre-season means nothing other than getting the team to gel and to work on tactics and formations.

“We look forward to our final pre-season game,” he said. “It’s our last run out for what we want to try and achieve and what we want to try and get out of pre-season.

“It’ll be a good work out against a Poole side, who we beat two seasons ago to gain promotion. It will be a tough away game, but we go there in good spirits, finalising preparations for our first league match at Crawley next week.”

The good for Argyle news is that Leah Burridge has returned from holiday, although they will be without the services again of Jessica Jones.

Zoe Cunningham is also in the squad after recovering from a slight injury and is expected to have a run out.

There is also good news for teenager Beth Everson and Ellie Bishop, who have both looked good in the previous games and will make the trip.

Argyle squad: Becky Kyle, Kate Middleton, Mollie Taylor, Helen Bleazard, Ellie Bishop, Kayley Lane, Becky Dandridge, Amber Pollock, Faye Ivall, Beth Everson, Natasha Knapman, Darcey Hepworth, Leah Burridge, Ebony Dover.

Argyle’s development team have had to call off their match on Sunday at St Austell due to injuries, having players away as well as having players called into the first team.
