Rangers up and running in the FA WPL
TWO goals from captain Elly Maggs got QPR Ladies’ FA Women’s Premier League season up and running against Swindon Town on Sunday.
After the disappointment of the R’s opening day defeat at Crystal Palace seven days earlier, Rangers provided the perfect response with a dominant display at Honeycroft.
Maggs made the breakthrough two minutes before half-time, bulleting a header home from a corner, before sealing victory midway through the second period with a cool finish inside the box.
The result – a repeat of the scoreline when the sides met on the final day of last season – gives Martino Chevannes’ the perfect start on home soil in the first of three successive games at Uxbridge.
Next up is a visit from Portsmouth this weekend in the FA WPL Cup.
