Snods' Love Of The Ladies

by John Howard @Everton

Everton Ladies’ 1-1 draw with Doncaster Rovers Belles last Sunday was watched by a very special and knowledgeable guest.

Blues legend Ian Snodin was in attendance at the Arriva Stadium as two of his former clubs shared the spoils in an exciting WSL encounter.

An all-round lover of football, Snods was full of praise for the women's game, describing midfielder Fara Williams’ 25-yard equaliser as a ‘peach’.

“It finished 1-1, but the standard of football on both sides was absolutely terrific,” said Snods. “I can’t get enough of football and it’s a genuine shame that women’s football perhaps doesn’t get the recognition it deserves in this country.

“We saw at the Olympics how high the standard is and Everton’s goal from Fara Williams was an absolute peach.”

Everton Ladies will be in action again this Sunday in their penultimate home game of the season.

Mo Marley’s second-placed side welcome mid-table Chelsea to Marine’s Arriva Stadium looking to close the gap on leaders Arsenal with just three games remaining.
