Wrexham Women got themselves off to a flyer last weekend in their opening game of the season with no fewer than nine goals in a thrilling encounter whilst the young Dragons were denied their first victory of the season at Stansty.

Youth

Wrexham Youth were back in action last Friday as they welcomed a young Carlisle United side to Stansty Park in the League Cup. The Cumbrians took the lead after 27 minutes through a Josh Galloway volley before levelled eight minutes later through Sam Pilkington who hit a rebound from distance.

Seven minutes after the re-start Pilkington was at it again following a scramble in the box, firing home from 18-yards out. As Wrexham looked to seal their first victory of the campaign Galloway popped up again in stoppage time to equalise for United, ending the game at 2-2. 

The youth team are next in action on Saturday as they host local rivals Tranmere Rovers at Stansty Park, kick off is at 11am.

Wrexham AFC Women

The Women's team got themselves off the mark in true style on Sunday with the 9-1 thumping of CPD Mountain Rangers at Cae Stanley. Savannah Palin marked her league debut in some style with four goals whilst there was a double for Jodie Richards.

Also on the scoresheet were Lauren Reese, Filipa Silva and Lily Clifton. The girls led 3-0 at half-time before firing six in the second half, with Rangers grabbing a late consolation.

It was the perfect way of getting started after not being in action for three weeks with their intial game cancelled with Bala pulling out of the North Wales Women's Football League. 

They now move on to this Sunday's first home game of the season at Penycae where they take on Amlwch Ladies.
