The Round-Up

Cambridgeshire – Sunday 5th February

Cambridgeshire Women’s Premiership

There were six matches played across 4 competitions in Cambridgeshire on Sunday in the Women’s football leagues. Left this Round-Up till last because I feared the worst and it is with sadness I have to report another team folding this season, promoted as Championship North Champions just this past summer, Bourne Ladies have pulled out of the Premiership having played just a handful of fixtures struggled to fulfil others were due to play this weekend but it was called off a real shame some talented players in their side I hope most if not all will continue in the game do run a number of youth sides and hopefully these will continue in the future and the club with remain in some form.

That sees an adjustment to the Premiership table the wins sides gained from Bourne chalked off, as a result Bar Hill Ladies move into 2nd place in the table after they edged out Cambridge University Women away from home in a 9 goal thriller. A brace each for Amanda Wainwright and Kate Ross for Cambridge University wasn’t enough to take anything from the match as Bar Hill ran out 5-4 winners.

Cambridgeshire Women’s Championship North

In the Cambridgeshire Women’s Championship North, Swineshead Institute Ladies climb up the table into 2nd spot after a 5-0 at home to bottom club Thurlby Tigers on Sunday. Ellie Spendlow finding the back of the net for 4 more goals moving her onto 22 for the season, top scorer for the club by some distance so far this season from just 8 appearances. Chloe Gray scoring the other goal for Swineshead Institute.

 In the other match played in the Championship North, Boston United Ladies made it 4 straight wins in the league and cup with a 3-1 home win over Wisbech Town Ladies on Sunday. 2 goals from Bethany Britton 1 from the penalty spot along with a goal for Ella Marie Mcororey seeing them win their 3 successive league match.

Cambridgeshire Women’s Championship South

The one league match played in the Championship South on Sunday saw the 2 unbeaten sides in the league met with runaway leaders, Cambridge City Ladies Development at home to 3rd placed Milton Ladies who have games in hand on the leaders but need the points if they wish to close the gap as it was Cambridge City were in no mood to give any away as both Erin Fox and Carla Penny were both on target to score 2 goals each. Anna Wilson and Tegan Wyman also scoring a goal each to see the league leaders run out 6-0 winners, go 10 points clear at the top and end Milton’s unbeaten league record.

Cambridgeshire Women’s Junior Invitation Cup

 Two ties in the 1st Round of this season’s Cambridgeshire Women’s Junior Invitation Cup. Both seeing plenty of goals scored too. Was an all Championship South clash between the two bottom sides as Cambridge Rangers hosted bottom side Orton Rangers Ladies the game ending 2-2 after 90 minutes Cambridge Rangers went on to score twice in extra-time to advance to the next round of the competition.

In the other 1st Round tie Championship South side Fulbourn Bluebirds were at home against Championship North leaders, March Town United Ladies the game was won by the odd goal in 7. Louise Barbour, Emma Frost and Emma Searle from the penalty spot scoring for March Town United, they were knocked out of the competition with Fulbourn Bluebirds taking it with a 4-3 win their goals coming from, Emma Clark, Lucy Clarkson, Katie Luddy and Sharon Pinner.
