Everton 0 Notts County 2 (Holtham 5, Clarke 45)
Notts County did the damage in the first half to pick up their first win of the season with an impressive 2-0 victory over Everton.
County took the early advantage in a high tempo start to the game, with Katie Holtham scoring with a fifth minute header that Everton keeper Rachel Brown-Finnis could only push onto the post and over the line.
The visitors showed tremendous defensive organisation to preserve their lead, with midfielder Sophie Walton and England centre back Sophie Bradley particularly excellent.
Everton's frustration was compounded just before the interval as Jess Clarke scored a scrappy second for County from Walton's corner.
The Toffees showed plenty of attacking intent after the break as they sought a way back into the game, but were limited early in the second half to Billie Murphy's long range effort, which went straight into Carly Telford's arms.
Kelly Jones went one better fifteen minutes from time, meeting Alex Greenwood's cross with a back header that left Telford in no man's land, but Laura-Jane O'Neill got back superbly to clear the ball off the line.
County kept pressing forward as they sought to put the game beyond doubt, and Clarke went close to her second with a half volley from the edge of the box.
