Albion Women were beaten 1-3 by Wolves on Thursday evening despite a spirited showing at The Hawthorns.

A rainy night began brightly for the Baggies - who made history when Maria Timms curled a fantastic effort home inside the opening 10 minutes.

The goal was the first ever scored in a women’s Black Country derby at The Hawthorns, delighting many of the 1,275 in attendance.

But Wolves turned things around before half-time, Destiney Toussaint’s brace adding to Beth Roberts’ equaliser - ensuring they had a two-goal lead going into the break.

And neither side could add to their tally in a quieter second period, with Wolves running out winners in B71.

The teams meet again this Sunday for a County Cup semi-final at Hednesford’s Keys Park Stadium. Ticket & travel details for that one can be found here.

Albion: Clarke, Green, Crackle (Mahmood 46), Timms, George, Evans, Tudor (Pugh 79), Loydon (Embley 79), Stamps (Bennett-Steele 70), Cole, Davies.

Substitutes: Miller.

Attendance: 1,275.
