Portsmouth Women kicked off this midweek’s pre-season friendlies by beating Brighton & Hove Albion in front of their record crowd.

Fratton Park had 2,906 fans inside, as Mae Goulden’s first-minute goal was soon cancelled out and the visitors went ahead in the second half. However, Emma Jones and Mia Adaway struck late efforts for a 3-2 Pompey win.
