Kenni Thompson nets debut goal for Eibar
Kenni Thompson opened her scoring account for new Spanish club Eibar in a 2-0 win at home to Rayo Vallecano in the women’s first division at the weekend.
The daughter of North Village coach Kenny Thompson converted in the 66th minute to cap a convincing win at the Unbe Sports Complex in Eibar on Sunday.
Valentina Morales opened the scoring in the 21st minute before new signing Thompson put the game further beyond the visiting side’s reach.
Thompson joined Eibar, who play in the second tier of women’s football in Spain, after being released by English FA Women’s Championship side London City Lionesses in June.
She is no stranger to the Spanish football scene, having had previous stints at Deportivo La Coruña, Espanyol, Civitas Santa Teresa Badajoz, Cornellá, Barcelona and Sant Gabriel.
She was also a part of the Chelsea Under-15 set-up before later returning on the English football scene with London City.
Meanwhile, also getting her name on the scoresheet on Sunday was Bermuda captain Eva Frazzoni, who netted in Hashtag United’s 7-0 beating of Ashton Town in a lopsided FA Women’s National League cup-tie.
Frazzoni entered the fray as a 56th-minute substitute and scored her team’s seventh goal in the 72nd minute to cap a dominant display at the Stuart Bingham Stadium.
Frazzoni has scored four times since joining the Division One South leaders last month.
The 24-year-old went into Sunday’s match on a high, having scored twice in her team’s 5-0 league win at home to Cambridge United.
