Casey Stoney made an assured debut as Liverpool Ladies reached the semi-finals of the Women’s FA Cup after a deserved 2-0 win over Notts County Ladies on Sunday afternoon.
The England star was a solid presence at the back alongside captain Gemma Bonner in a partnership that offers manager Scott Rogers plenty of encouragement for the season ahead.
Goals from Caroline Weir and Natasha Harding saw off the strong challenge of Rick Passmoor’s County at the Select Security Stadium in Widnes and kept alive hopes of silverware for Liverpool in 2017.
Before the action got underway a minute’s applause was held in honour of the great Ronnie Moran, who sadly passed away on Wednesday. The Liverpool players also wore black armbands as a mark of respect.
Rogers’ charges started brightly and opened the scoring after just two minutes through Weir, although there was a huge slice of fortune about it.
