Gills Ladies return to winning ways in the League
Gillingham Ladies returned to FA Women’s Premier League action for the first time since late November and were on the road to face MK Dons LFC. A goal either side of half time was enough to secure three vital points for Gills Ladies.
MK Don LFC made a good start to the match but mid-way through the first half Gills Ladies had a good period of play when Rachel Ahern played through Kallie Balfour who went one on one with MK Dons LFC keeper and Kallie calmly slots the ball home to make it 1-0 to Gills Ladies. The second half started with a corner for Gills Ladies as the ball was swung into the box it went in off a melee of players to double their lead. MK Dons LFC grabbed a late goal but Gills Ladies held on to win the game 2-1.
