Hot-shot Shuttleworth fires double in York City Ladies win
10:40am Saturday 12th October 2013 in Sport
LAUREN Shuttleworth bagged a brace as York City Ladies ran out 3-0 winners at home to Castleford White Rose.
Girl-of-the-game Sara Renfrew had earlier opened the scoring against a team City will now play again this weekend in the return fixture.
In this meeting, midfielder Beth Clayton forced an early save following a flowing move involving Renfrew, Jazz Whitwell and Emily Dingle.
Renfrew then opened the scoring with a fantastic strike on 16 minutes.
At the other end of the pitch, ’keeper Chloe Precious pulled off a brilliant save to keep the team on level terms while a solid defence of Josie Hewson, Ruth Brazier, Abbi Webster and Dingley helped keep the visitors at bay otherwise.
Shuttleworth then doubled the advantage on 33 minutes. She was initially unsure whether her effort had crossed the line before the goal was given by the referee.
A more emphatic finish by Shuttleworth made the score 3-0 12 minutes into the second half but she went on to miss out a hat-trick when she hit another chance straight at the Castleford ’keeper.
