FC picked up a first win, beating Bradford City 3-1 on Wednesday night, while Stockport took a point away at Chorley in a 3-3 draw on Thursday.

Both sides had lost their opening two games.

Historic first win for Tom Fitton’s side

Goals from captain Kirsty Chambers and a brace either side of the break from Ella Hartley secured FC United’s first win of the season.

Zoe Roberts’ free kick gave Bradford a consolation late on.

The club are playing at this level for the first time having successfully applied for promotion in the close season.

The victory sees the club climb off the bottom of the table into 8th place.

County off the mark in a game of two halves

Stockport County now have a point on the board, but manager Ronnie Green will be frustrated after his side threw away a 3-0 half time lead.

Early goals from Olivia Dixon (2) and Maria Figueruedo saw the Hatters race into a strong halftime lead.

However, they were pegged back in the second half as goals from Katie Matthews, Betti Worth and Laura Walker saw Chorley fight back to level the game.

The rescued point takes Chorley top at this early stage.

County have moved up to 9th in the table, with Barnsley and Bradford City still without a point propping up the table.

What’s next?

Both sides are in action on Sunday afternoon.

FC United will look to build on their first victory when they travel to Barnsley, who have lost all of their games so far.

Stockport County have a home game against big-scoring Newcastle United, who already have 13 goals in just two games, and unsurprisingly a 100% record after big wins over FC United and Alnwick Town.
