Kings’ Langley Ladies completed their summer schedule at the Enfield 5-a-side competition.

Kings Langley A took time to get into gear and a couple of early defeats were halted with a win against Welwyn Garden City courtesy of Mary Hogan’s long range drive.

Despite fine efforts from Kim Nield and Nicole Barrett, Kings could only manage a goalless draw against Hoddesdon Owls in their next game, which meant they needed to beat Ashford Town to progress to the Knock-out Plate.

A deflected shot wrong-footed keeper Holly Gravestock to give Ashford a fortunate lead, and despite Nield levelling things up from the spot, Kings could not force the winner they needed.

Kings Langley B, meanwhile, saw Ruth Gorin in fine form – rolling out a string of saves against high class opposition in the form of QPR, Enfield Town and Watford.

The team put in some excellent performances, but suffered a run of narrow defeats to eventually finish in fifth place but not disgraced in their group.

Kings now have a week off before returning to action on July 14 for the first of their pre-season trial sessions at Pennine Way. Players of any ability aged 16 or over are welcome to attend.
