Lightning v Glos Ladies 

A totally new look Lightning took the court & started strongly against Gloucester Ladies, with scores level after 15 mins. 
There was was great inter play between the shooters Flick & Hannah. 
All 3 new comers from Glos Uni slotted in well & played confidently. An unfortunate injury to Lauren meant she had to leave the court in the 2nd Q. but by half time Lightning had edged into a narrow 2 goal lead 21-19.
Flick moving to the opposite end of the court gave the circle much needed height to rebound the odd missed shot. Grace coming on at GS was in sparkling form, positioning well & converting accurately. Marsha May @ WA had a great game showing good vision into the circle. 
Harriet Taylor back in the red & black had a good game at WD as did Connie debuting in Lightning. 
Beth Atkins put out a strong performance at both C & WD. 
Going into the final Q 5 goals ahead, Lightning settled, new comers nerves disappeared & they edged further ahead to take a great first win in Prem 54-44.
