Pendle Forest had a trio of players in action for Lancashire Under 14s in Chester on Sunday.

Thea Cormack, Harriet Ashworth and Freya Bythell took part in a tournament for the Red Rose county, and helped keep three clean sheets in a hat-trick of victories.

They will again turn out for Lancashire at Stanley Park, Blackpool in April.

On Saturday, Pendle Forest thirds drew 1-1 against Brookfields, who have been in the division’s top three all season.

Both keepers made excellent saves, with Debbie Lancaster in inspired form for Forest.

Pendle soaked up the pressure and scored when Freya Bythell ran at the defenders and laid off in the D to Claire Birkett, who touched a neat flick right for Cath Hutchinson to tuck past the keeper.

In the second half, Brookfields levelled after they broke from a Pendle attack, with a lucky deflection beating Lancaster.

Lancaster was named as player of the match.
