Swindon went down 5-4 at home against a young Bristol University side.

Starting slowly, Swindon conceded early and despite some super saves from Sarah Anstey soon went 2-0 down.

Junior star Megan Poole then gave Swindon some hope as she scored her first senior goal.

Bristol though were very quick and dangerous on the break and scored a third after putting Swindon under a lot of pressure.

Linda Brouwers deflected a Lynsey Wall shot into the net to reduce the deficit and then Victora Stokes converted a short corner to level the scores.

Bristol then struck twice in quick succession to dash Swindon’s hopes.

A late goal from Stokes gave Swindon hope but they couldn’t find a fifth, equalising goal.
