"Yes, that is my first RAF goal and it took a long while coming!" said Fg Off Carr when talking about the goal.

"It's just following stuff in. You don't know what can fall to you at the end of the day.

"You've got to be there. If you're there, what’s the worst that can happen?"

The striker's moment nearly came earlier in the first half when she thumped a shot off the crossbar.

She said: "I just let it come across my body because I saw she overcommitted.

"It hit the bar. It is what it is, isn't it?

"At the end of the day, rebounds but there was nothing there for us to get."

Chief Technician James Bryden was full of praise for the team after the win.

The RAF Ladies head coach said: "To top that off with what I thought was an outstanding performance, probably the best performance in my two seasons with the squad, and we've just quite comfortably beat a team there that are competing for a top spot in a tier 4 league.

"I based, when I took over, to be competing at tier 4 level.

"We've just gone and shown we could probably top tier 4 level and now I might look to push into tier 3 before we get to those Inter Services."
