St Ives Town Ladies continued an unbeaten start to their debut Eastern Region Women’s League season last Sunday.

Darren Marjoram’s second-placed side breezed to a 4-0 success against strugglers Hatfield Peverel Ladies at Westwood Road.

Harriet Ford handed Saints the perfect start by breaking the deadlock in the first minute but that proved to be the only incident of note in an otherwise low-key opening half.

But Saints played with more purpose and intent in the second period when stretching their advantage with three further goals in the space of eight minutes.

Tierney Coulson, who struck four times in their previous game, provided the first of them before sisters Georgia and Katie Stancombe got in on the act.
