THERE were lots of mums cheering on their daughters pitch-side at the Sports Ground on Sunday, as Ross Juniors Women secured a 5-0 Mother’s Day home win over Kidderminster United in the Midwest Counties Female Football League.
Goals from Lana Addis, Millie Malsom, Amy Riggs, Lily Powell and an own goal secured the points in front of a decent crowd, which lifted them three points clear of their opponents in ninth.
Juniors posted: “Thank you all the Mums who came and supported the girls today, and to all the Mums who stayed at home to look after younger siblings while the Dads brought their daughters to football. Happy Mother’s Day!”
