Report: Bristol City Women Development Squad 2-0 Watford Ladies

Bristol City Women Development Squad got back to winning ways at the Stoke Gifford Stadium.

Second-half goals from Ellie Strippel and Holly Chandler meant the Vixens secured all three points.

Strippel opened the scoring on 52 minutes from a corner that was taken quickly, the youngster fired home to score her first goal for the club.

On 70 minutes Chandler doubled the lead, again slotting home from a corner.

A number of first-team players gained valuable minutes on their return from injury. Aimee Palmer, Poppy Wilson, Flo Allen and Ellie Wilson all played 90 minutes, whilst Lily Woodham and Lorca Van De Putte played 45 minutes apiece.

The win puts City Women third in WSL Development League South, three points behind leaders Arsenal.

Up next is Chelsea Ladies at the Cobham Training Ground on Sunday, February 25th.
