Queens Ladies travelled to Sanquhar on Sunday for a league game against Nithsdale Wanderers. With goal difference likely to be crucial in deciding the destination of the league title, Queens were keen to score as many goals as possible, and they managed a ten goal winning margin to keep their title hopes alive. Scorers were Holly Ovens (4), Kirsty McDonald, Alexandra Connon, Charlotte Smith (2), Leona Smith and Eve Jackson. Final score Nithsdale 0 Queens 10.
Queens U16 girls are also in contention to win their league title and could lift the trophy this weekend when they travel to Cambusdoon.
Queens Ladies final league game of the season, against Kilwinning, will now be played on Sunday at Palmerston Park, kick off 2pm.
Latest news is that Harmony Row failed to turn up for a previous fixture against Kilwinning, which means that Kilwinning were awarded a 3-0 win. Harmony Row appealed against the decision but the appeal was turned down. They then appealed again and a final decision is awaited, although it is thought to be unlikely that the decision will be reversed. This would mean that going into the final games of the league season on Sunday, Queens and Harmony Row would be level on points, with Queens having a goal difference advantage of +5. It seems almost certain that the league will be decided on goal difference, so it would be great to get a large crowd at Palmerston on Sunday to get behind the Ladies. Access to the ground will be via the gate next to the end of the main stand.
Spectators are asked not to sit in the main stand.
Admission is free, but a cash collection for the First Base Agency foodbank will be made before the game and at half time.
