Ludlow v Montgomery 
Ludlow ladies have come along way since last season to start we had 13 ladies on team sheet and also managed to have some attacking short corners so with the keeper Tanya and central defender Tracy back of their Holiday’s the team was back up to full strength , ludlow worked together keeping Monty out of the D for most of the game with lots of passing around and some strong defending but

2017/18 Season


Ludlow 1. Montgomery 0 
Ludlow came out fighting with a full team this week 
they settled into the game straight away with lots of passing and using the width of the pitch so this meant Ludlow were able to get into montys D which resulted in a short corner which was injected by Helen Braden to the top of the D and Julie Chamberlain who struck the ball and found the right hand bottom corner for a goal .The rest of the match saw Ludlow battle away with some great runs off pip and Helen into montys D the last 8 minutes Ludlow had at least 4 short corners one after the other .

The ladies traveled to Bridgnorth on Saturday to play there seconds but the team was hit with the flu so ludlow only had 9 players fit to play 
So Ludlow had to play a defensive game from the start and held Bridgnorth nil nil for the first 15 to 20 minute , even tho ludlow were 1-0 down and with only 9 they kept batting 3-0 at half time 
Ludlow in the second half broke through  Bridgnorth defence several time to get into the D

Donkey of the day  Charlie Russell 


Telford started very strong and their centre forward got two very quick goals past our kicking back Karen. Ludlow tried to hold them off , however Telfords experience and Ludlows lack of goalie saw another 4 shots in the back of the goal before half time.

Ludlow never gave up and with Julie now in goals and some strong runs made my Helen and Claire, helped along by rohannah and Charlie, saw some strikes on their goal. Therefore the play was more even in the second half. Although the final score was 10-0 this did not reflect the determination and commitment from the Ludlow Ladies

Ludlow v Shrewbury 3rds 

Ludlow lost 4-0 to shrewbury 

Who brought a strong team to face Ludlow ( as their  seconds team have just pulled out of midlands league )

Ludlow vs Montgomery, 0-4

An away match at Welshpool . Ludlow welcomed T Chamberlain and T Francis to a game which Ludlow had to defend for long periods The defensive and midfield worked  extremely hard with T Chamberlain making some fantastic saves  

Well done to Ludlow  for working hard despite Ludlow being a player down and injured players playing they managed to create some scoring opportunities though ultimately lost 4-0 

Player of match A Oatham



Ludlow vs Telford. 0-3

Telford brought out a strong team with subs against our 10 players and right from the get go it was a very defensive game with Ella Evans showing she is going to be real asset to the team as she held her own. A welcome back to Charlotte playing as a defender. 3 new recruits for Ludlow, Steph who defended down the right flank. Lola and Evie who have stepped up from the under 14s and showed real potential up front and with help from the experienced Helen and Claire combined they did put Telfords defensive to test a few times. Half time score was only 1-0 scored from a penalty flick. 

In the second half Telford scored an early goal. The 3rd goal came from relentless amount of short corners given against us.(think we must have been going for a record)

But the man of the match which was also noted by the attacking team had to go to Julie. People were shocked to find out shes not a goalie as she made more than 2 dozen fantastic saves. A well deserved players player and oppositions player of the match.



Wem / market Drayton 2s 3-0  Ludlow 

The new formed team of Ludlow ladies had their first match on Saturday at shawbury against wem / market Drayton 2s . 
Julie Chamberlain ( captain ) had managed to get a team of 12 ladies to travel to the away game with 3 ladies playing for the first time ; they also had a 13 year old playing her First Ladies match . The game started with a Ludlow push back and straight into the game with lots of good passing but wem / MD broke through the middle of the defence creating a one on one with the keeper with wem /MD going round to score their first goal. The next goal came off a short corner the keeper couldn't quite get a glove to it .The second half saw Ludlow swap some players around on the pitch and played much better in this half with passing controlling and lots of communication restricting wem/MD to just one goal despite almost constant pressure .
