For first year players Leila Gillespie and Hannah Johnson, this was an opportunity to get court time with Gillespie playing 24 minutes and Johnson 17 minutes, with both getting on the scoresheet.

It also saw a 20-minute spell on court for Ruby Hepburn as she continues to develop her game, with Daisy Lawson completing Fury's starting five. Jess Cram was first into the action off the bench, in what was a solid team performance overall.

Looking ahead, Fury’s U16 Cadettes have no game this weekend, although at least six of the team will be in action at the junior women's Scottish Cup quarter-final which tips at 2.30pm on Saturday at Grangemouth Sports Complex against St Mirren.

Preceding that game will be Fury’s senior women league match, which is also against St Mirren. That one tips at 12.30pm and spectators are welcome to both games.
