St Ives Town Ladies celebrated a top-of-the-table triumph in their first fixture of 2018.

Darren Marjoram’s side beat Cambridgeshire Women’s Premiership title rivals Netherton United 4-2 last Sunday.

Early goals from Katherine Speed and Hannah Seymour-Shove provided the perfect start before Georgia Stancombe struck just after the half-hour.

Stancombe then saw a penalty saved before eventually grabbing her second goal early in the second period.

Leaders Netherton fought back strongly and halved their arrears in the final half-an-hour.

Only a terrific sliding clearance from St Ives defender Ellie Brown prevented them scoring again and setting up a nervy finish.

The success leaves Saints nine points behind Netherton in the standings, but they still possess four games in hand.

The club’s Development side drew 3-3 with Histon Reserves in the group stage of the Championship Cup. Georgia Rebane, Molly Berryman and Connie Liddiard hit their goals.
