Davis spoke to TTGB after the match.

“Overall, we are happy with today’s end result,” Davis said.

“The group responded well to back-to-back road trips after last weeks cup win against Somerset, and we’re starting to gel really nicely as a squad.

“With the younger girls coming through this year it was also great to see them shine in today’s game.

“It’s still early in the season and we’ve got a few things we’d like to work on, but we’re really happy with how we’ve pushed through. Now we’re just going to focus on what will be our first home game of the season against Olympia.”
