Lincoln and Stockport hit five on travels
 Women's Football News 20 Aug 2007
Lincoln and Stockport hit five on travels - 20 Aug 2007Last season's Northern Division runners-up Lincoln City served notice of their intentions to go one better this time around as they opened up the season with a 5-1 win away to Tranmere Rovers.
Stacey Aisthorpe gave the Lady Imps the lead with Tranmere equalising just before half time but after the break, 16-year-old Sophie Barker put Lincoln back in front with a neat shot on the turn. Jodie Snelson slotted home two further goals before Aisthorpe completed the scoring late on.
Stockport County equalled Lincoln's feat of a 5-1 away victory, giving a baptism of fire to newcomers Rotherham Utd. Debutant Keeleigh Savage gave Stockport a 12th minute and Abbie Wynn added the second from 25 yards. Kerry Longstone pulled a goal back midway through the second half but Krystal Johnson restored the two goal advantage and late strikes from Savage and Johnson rounded off the victory.
To complete a bad day all round for the four newly promoted clubs, Sheffield Wednesday were also beaten despite taking an early lead through Sarah Smith. Aston Villa fought back to run out 4-2 winners, thanks to a goal apiece from Hannah Smith, Natalie Gibson, Carly Davies and Cherelle Archibald.
Nottingham Forest have been tipped by many to be amongst the challenging sides and they started the season well, beating Newcastle Utd 2-1. Natalie Clarke gave Forest a first half lead which was cancelled out midway through the second half from the penalty spot by Melanie Reay, but new signing Andi Bell settled the game in Forest's favour with the winning goal, nine minutes from time.
Preston North End narrowly had the better of a well contested match against Crewe Alexandra. The Lancashire side emerged as 1-0 winners, Leesa Haydock chipping home the only goal of the game in the 34th minute.
The comeback of the day was made by Manchester City who came from two goals behind to draw 2-2 with Sunderland. Sarah Danby had netted twice for Sunderland as they bid to reclaim their National Division status but goals in quick succession from Laura Wendley and Lindsay Savage ensured a share of the spoils for City.
