  1. Nottingham Forest Ladies V Arsenal Ladies The next game of the week took place at Rolls Royce Leisure in Hucknall, just outside Nottingham. Due to extremely heavy traffic outside of London, I missed the first 20 minutes of the game arriving with Arsenal 2-0 up - Jordan Nobbs had scored a penalty and Caroline Weir had added the second. It was even colder than Tuesday night but the pitch was in much better condition. Before I had had to time to gather my bearings, Weir had added her second of the night and Arsenal went in at half-time 3-0 up. Forest came out in the second half with renewed energy after making three substitutions with Natasha Meade, Ruth Titterton and JemmaGrimadell coming on for Andrea Bell, Trina Greaves and Emma Hollingsworth. Arsenal too made some changes with Leah Williamson, the England U17 captain, coming on for Japanese international, Ohno, and Emma Byrne making way for Siobhan Chamberlain. Within a few minutes of the second half, Casey Stoney pulled up with a leg injury which saw Molly Bartrip came on in her place. Forest were applying some pressure in midfield and it was paying off. They forced a corner and a powerful low shot which was blocked by the Arsenal defence and minutes later, a close range shot from Amber Hughes was brilliantly saved by Siobhan Chamberlain. The rebound came to Kirsty Allen whose follow up was tipped onto the bar by Chamberlain and headed clear. It was terrific play from attack and defence alike. With that last move, the referee blew the whistle and it finished Nottingham Forest 0 v 5 Arsenal. Both FAWPL teams were extremely impressive and you have to give respect to the goalkeepers who made some brilliant stops. Nottingham’s Kirsty Allen was also a continuous threat. On Arsenal’s side, there were solid performances from all players involved. It was great to see the new signings and younger players in action and at times their passing play was unstoppable. These two competitive games will have set them in good stead for the beginning of the new season of FAWSL football.
