minute when Annie cross from the right was met at the far post for
Simran to head home for City’s equaliser. Play centred in the middle of the pitch with both teams battling to take control, Birstall regained the lead on seventeen minutes when they attacked through the centre into the area the City keeper made the tackle but was adjudged to have fowled the player and the referee awarded
a penalty which Birstall United scored.
