Usually we lean towards a ‘multitasking’ approach to the weekend matches; the tendency towards exhibition football by the bigger clubs allowing us to freely surf for handbags whilst keeping half an eye on the games.

Not to worry, though. We’ve compiled a short montage of this past’s key moments for our beloved Kickettes today.

It’s not classy to have genuine, red-faced, vein-throbbing rows about football, which is why we’re usually happy to roll about in drenched-in-rain ‘baller frustration for hours to come.
