Forfar Farmington returned to action with a 3-2 win over Motherwell, springing the game into light after a goalless 1st half. A winning start to the Kevin McGreskin era.
Motherwell started proceedings with the more clear cut opportunities which posed Lauren Perry into action with Claire Adams finding Callaghan but her low drive was well dealt with by the Northern Irish goalkeeper.
Abby Skelton then found Kaela McDonald-Nguah who flashed an effort across goal with captain Nicola Davidson performing heroics at the right time blocking any path towards goal.
Forfar got into the game as the half progressed & Cheryl Kilcoyne was always positive on the ball looking to pose an intent on defenders, she got on the end of a London Pollard pass before her shot just fell wide.
Forfar took the lead on 48 minutes with Cassie Cowper sending a great corner from the right which was met by the unmarked Lisa Ryan who guided home for her 1st goal in Forfar colours making no mistake finishing well, Ryan had to play in both full back areas after London Pollard picked up a knock which led to a positive & versatile afternoon.
The lead only lasted a few minutes with Motherwell levelling. After a stramash in the box, the ball was cleared up to Callaghan who dipped an effort beyond the stranded Perry to level matters for Well.
Farmington re-took the lead with a Cassie Cowper long range strike flying into the net beyond Khym Ramsay to move back into the lead & have something to build on. Head Coach Kevin McGreskin has implemented a new system across the midfield with Cowper & Paterson linking up well together.
Davidson & Kirsty Fraser partnered up well at the back & the latter almost got on the scoresheet after the ball was initially cleared into Frasers path but she shot over the bar.
Alana Bruce got a deserved 3rd goal for Forfar to round things off, the Farmington stalwart punished a lack of concentration at the back, finding herself goalside from Chelsie Watson before finishing well past Ramsay.
Motherwell pulled one back from Jordan McLintock to produce a nail biting end to this contest but it was another big win for Forfar Farmington & with results elsewhere, it means Forfar go into 5th.
Plenty of positives, alongside the win, the back four were instrumental in the success with Paterson & Cowper linking up well, Cheryl Kilcoyne, Erin Rennie & London Pollard were all creative but done the battling work as well trying to advance attacks immediately.
Charlotte Gammie grafted until the late substitution despite being on the end of a challenge in the 1st half. Charlotte Taylor came on in the latter stages of the match & chased & hustled every ball giving a tired Motherwell backline issues. Tougher opposition next week in Glasgow City to come but back with a bang!
