Report: Reading Women 2-5 Bristol City Women Development Squad

Bristol City Women Development Squad defeated Reading Women 5-2, to go joint-top of the WSL Development League South alongside Arsenal Women.

The fixture, which was held at Bisham Abbey, was closely contested in the first half. 

Both teams tried to get a foothold in the game, but it was the visitors who had the edge with City Women leading 2-1 at the break.

The Vixens came out firing in the second half, adding three goals in quick succession to record an impressive victory in Berkshire.

Bristol City Women’s goals came courtesy of Olivia Fergusson (3), Chloe Gilroy and Holly Reed.

The pick of the bunch came from Holly Reed, whose thunderous effort from 25 yards sailed past the goalkeeper.

Up next, the Development Squad face Arsenal Women in a top of the table clash in the capital.
