Sunday 7th January

Cambridgeshire Women’s Premiership

2018 begins with Netherton United Ladies having a commanding 12 point lead at the top of the Cambridgeshire Women’s Premiership, losing just one of the 10 league games they played before Christmas. Those sides hoping to catch them have alot of work to do but do have games in hand. St Ives Town Ladies in 2nd place in the table were hosting Netherton United this Sunday with 4 matches in hand on the leaders. St Ives Town enjoying a good first half were leading Netherton 3-0, and despite Netherton pulling 2 goals back in the 2nd half St Ives Town found the back of the net once more to win the game 4-2 and close the gap a little. Georgia Stancombe scoring twice for St Ives Town along with a goal each for Katherine Speed and Hannah Seymour-Shove.

    Another side with plenty of games in hand on Netherton United in the Premiership are 3rd placed Newmarket Town Ladies their 1st game of 2018 just their 6th league match. Were on the road taking on March Town United Ladies in 5th spot. Two strikes from Jordanne Sillitoe seeing Newmarket come away with all three points winning the match 2-1.
