Plymouth Argyle LFC 1 Swindon Town Ladies 0
Swindon made the long journey to Plymouth on Sunday in rain, sleet and snow but went down by a goal to nil.
On a poor pitch and in strong winds, the ladies could not play their normal passing game and battled hard against a team who were in the women's Southern Premier League last season.
There was a controversial moment in the first half as a Plymouth player appeared to kick out at a Swindon player but the referee deemed a yellow card to be sufficient punishment.
The ladies conceded a goal in first half stoppage time after a defensive mix-up.
With the pitch not helping the cause, Swindon had to make two changes after the break due to injury but they kept pushing for an equaliser.
Before the end, the home side were reduced to ten players after a two-footed tackle on Town’s Amy Baker. With Baker no longer able to continue as a result, Swindon had to battle on with ten players themselves having made all their substitutions but could not find a way through the Plymouth back line.
Swindon Town Ladies are back in action next Sunday when they travel to Melksham LFC on in the County Cup Semi Final.
