BARNSLEY Ladies saw their FA Cup dreams ended following a 1-0 defeat to Radcliffe Olympic. Radcliffe are at the same league level as Barnsley but play in the East Midlands Premier League whereas the Lady Reds play in the North East Premier League. They have also had an unbeaten start to the season so the Reds knew that they would be in for a close game. Barnsley started well, putting Radcliffe under pressure right from the start. Sue Elrington had a one-on-one chance with the keeper after beating the offside trap but was unable to convert and she also had a terrific shot from just outside the area which flew just past the post. Nicki Wilde also had a couple of half chances as well but was unable to test the keeper. The second half was much the same as the first with both teams creating chances but it was Radcliffe who broke the deadlock with a penalty following a foul in the area. Goalkeeper Kath Hemmingway was given no chance from the spot. Despite a valiant effort to get back into the game, the Lady Reds were unable to find an equaliser.
