SLOUGH moved up to third place in the Investec Women’s League Division One South following their 3-2 win at St Albans on Saturday, writes Dave Wright.

It was their sixth game without defeat and their third in a row away from home.

Immie Brown, who had netted the winning goals at Sevenoaks and Trojans, was again on target, taking her tally to four goals in six games.

Laura Bailey opened the scoring in the 17th minute, but the hosts levelled through Sam Archer-Overall two minutes before half-time.

Bailey restored the lead for the Pink and Blacks from a 49th-minute penalty corner, with Brown making it 3-1 in the 62nd minute.
