United Women hit five against Sandefjord
Jane Ross scored her first goal for Manchester United Women in a 5-0 win over Sandefjord in the team’s second and final pre-season tour match.
Casey Stoney made six changes, with Amy Turner and Charlotte Newsham coming in at the back for Aimee Palmer and Kirsty Hanson.
Making her debut in between the sticks, Mary Earps had little to do - one reaction save in the first half apart - but the England international made her presence felt and her voice heard throughout. She was replaced by Emily Ramsey on the hour mark, one of seven simultaneous substitutions.Alex Greenwood was one of those second-half substitutes, making her first appearance since returning from the World Cup and took up an advanced role. Within seven minutes, Kirsty Smith's cross set up Sigsworth to head in the fifth and round off the scoring.
Lifelong United fan Abbie McManus also made her debut, coming on for first-half captain Amy Turner.
