Slough keep up good start
 Women's Football News 31 Aug 2009
 
Slough made it two wins out of two in the Southern Region League Premier Division having beaten both the promoted teams, Maidenhead United away last week and Oxford United at Beaconsfield SYCOB F.C. on Sunday.
 
With BTC Southampton withdrawing last week from the league, eleven teams will contest the Premier title, with last year's runners-up Southampton Saints hoping to go one better. Slough gave a convincing display against a spirited young United team and could easily have won by a greater margin, having also hit the woodwork twice, once from a penalty.
 
Slough started brightly, with Kim McClenn making dangerous runs from the right wing and new signing Kirsty O'Connor looking lively up front. Oxford keeper Georgie Currie was very busy, handling with authority and diving well to push away one low shot, but was beaten when O'Connor seized on a loose ball to fire home from 10 yards around the 20-minute mark.
 
The same player doubled the lead seven minutes later with a super goal, taking the ball around the advancing Currie and finishing from a tight angle.
 
McClenn's corners had been excellent and she scored directly from one just before half time when a United defender on the line was unable to keep the ball out to give the home team a comfortable lead at the break.
 
Oxford had threatened at times in the first half without really testing Lisa Phillips in the home goal and they nearly fell further behind on the hour, but McClenn hit the post from the penalty spot. O'Connor later rattled the bar with a thunderous drive from ten yards and Currie made another fine save, tipping over a goalbound lob as Slough continued to attack, but the score remained unchanged to the end.
 
Oxford United have a number of very promising teenage players, centre back Amy Chivers in particular had a fine match and the whole team worked very hard to keep their shape and discipline against a fairly relentless barrage of Slough pressure.
 
The home side looked a good unit, with lots of experience all over the pitch, but will face sterner tests against teams used to this level such as Saints, Aldershot, Shanklin and Wycombe Wanderers who have all made good starts themselves.
