Davison at the double for Chelsea
 Women's Football News 29 Mar 2015
Notts County 1 (Williams 25) Chelsea 2 (Davison 22,74)
A brace from Gemma Davison was enough to give Chelsea all three points in the season opener at Meadow Lane. 
Davison netted either side of Rachel Williams' bullet header to ensure that the three points went back to London with the Blues.
Ji So-Yun had the first chance for the away side, Eniola Aluko creating space inside the box and finding Ji So-Yun, the Korean international jinked her way past one challenge but her strong strike was well blocked by Fern Whelan in defence.
On the quarter hour mark Carly Telford, in goal for Notts, did well to keep the scores level. Gemma Davison broke free on the right and struck a rasping drive towards the near post, the England stopper doing well to tip the shot onto the bar and over.
Halfway through the first half, Chelsea took the lead. Aluko flicked the ball to Drew Spence in space, the midfielder fed the ball past Laura Bassett and to the onrushing Davison who took a touch before finishing past Telford.
It took just two minutes for the home side to find the equaliser. Alex Greenwood swung in a dangerous corner from the right and Rachel Williams beat the run of her marker to bullet a header past Hendvig Lindahl to level the scores.
As the half wore on, Notts started to take control, passing the ball around well without creating any real clear cut opportunities and the match reached half time all square at 1-1.
As the players came out for the second half, the rain came pouring down and a swirling wind made playing conditions very tricky. With twenty minutes on the clock, Telford did well to claim a dangerous cross under pressure as Aluko looked to pounce.
As the rain stopped Chelsea almost took the lead. Good work from Aluko down on the right gave the striker space and her cross was met by So-Yun in the middle who headed against the post, the ball deflecting wide.
Just a minute later the Blues scored the winner. Davison played the ball past Amy Turner in the area, the full back catching the winger on her way past giving the referee no option but to point to the spot. It was Davison who picked herself up and passed the ball into the corner, sending Telford the wrong way.
The Lady Pies almost snatched a late draw, Leanne Crichton's 20-yard volley was somehow kept up by the head of Katie Chapman in the six yard box, as the ball seemed to be heading for the top corner. 
Notts County: Carly Telford, Sophie Walton, Amy Turner, Laura Bassett, Alex Greenwood, Danielle Buet, Fern Whelan, Jess Clarke (sub Aileen Whelan 90mins), Rachel Williams (sub Fiona O'Sullivan 74mins), Ellen White, Leanne Crichton.

Chelsea: Hedvig Lindahl, Hannah Blundell, Claire Rafferty, Millie Bright, Katie Chapman, Niamh Fahey, Gemma Davison (sub Jackie Groenen 90mins), Drew Spence, Eniola Aluko (sub Marija Banusic 87mins), Ji So-Yun (sub Ana Marques Borges 76mins), Laura Coombs.
