Devon Women's Football: Last-minute change of pitch for Shaldon v Teignmouth

Torbay Weekly

In the Joma Devon Women's Football League Western Division, Shaldon Villa's pitch was deemed unfit by the match referee to play Teignmouth, so both teams agreed to make the short trip across town to play on Teignmouth's pitch.

The switch obviously suited Teignmouth as they took revenge for the match earlier in the season, which Shaldon won 3-1.

This time the home side started quicker and took a half-time lead, which Shaldon almost chased down, but eventually lost 4-3.

Bright spot for Shaldon was the introduction of  16-year-old starlet Nashya Paz, who capped her debut with a goal.

Also on target for Villa were Millie Cox and Roisin Skilton, with arguably the goal of the game, but it wasn't enough.

Hitting the net for the victorious Teigns were Nicky Lipscombe with a hat trick and the other goal scored by Amy Mitchell.

The match between Halwill Fc and Plainmoor Ladies was postponed, due to the state of the pitch and the match between Lakeside Athletic and Signal Box Oak Villa was abandoned.
