Rookettes make flying start
 Women's Football FA Women's Championship News - 19 Aug 2019
 
Lewes have made a strong start to the new season in the FA Women's Championship and gave newly promoted Blackburn Rovers a baptism of fire by beating them 5-1 on the opening day of the new campaign.
 
The Rookettes have been strengthening their squad during the summer with a number of signings, including the arrival of Scotland international striker Zoe Ness, and although she was not on the scoresheet on Sunday, her side took the lead on the half hour through Emma Jones, who has joined from Cardiff City Ladies. Blackburn's response was swift and they replied straight away through Natasha Flint but three minutes after the break, Lewes were back in front thanks to Jess King. Ellie Noble marked her first appearance for the club by scoring twice in quick succession and another new signing, Emily Donovan, rounded off an impressive start for her side with the final goal, four minutes from time.
 
Durham Women have been consistently amongst the top teams in the second tier over the past few years, and they have started well again this time around, running out 5-1 winners away to Leicester City. Megan Bell marked her first appearance for the Wildcats by giving them a seventh minute lead but Leicester were back on terms moments later, Libby Smith levelling the scores. Lisa Robertson fired Durham back in front just before the hour mark and Becky Salicki added the third soon afterwards, before a late double from substitute Molly Sharpe completed the scoring for the north east side.
 
Aston Villa produced the comeback of the day as they won 3-2 against Sheffield Utd. The Blades got off to a great start with Olivia Fergusson and Katie Wilkinson putting them two ahead with goals against their former clubs but Melissa Johnson, also playing against one of her old sides, pulled Villa back into the game just ahead of the break. In the second half, Johnson capped a great fightback from Villa as she brought the scores level and then grabbed the winning goal to complete her hat-trick.
 
The newly formed London City Lionesses made the short trip across the capital to face London Bees and went home with the points after a 2-0 victory. Grace Neville headed the Lionesses in front with eight minutes on the clock and both sides had traded chances, they sealed the points early in the second half thanks to a strike from Lucy Fitzgerald.
 
Coventry Utd played their first ever match in the Championship and got themselves off the mark as they shared a goalless draw with Crystal Palace. Both teams went close in what was a well contested game but neither could make a breakthrough on the day and had to settle for a point each.
