St Ives Town Ladies cemented their position at the top of the Eastern Region Women’s League Division One standings with a fine away success last Sunday.
Darren Marjoram’s side eased to a 4-0 victory at King’s Lynn Town Ladies to move four points clear of their closest challengers and extend their unbeaten record in a dazzling debut season at this level to 15 matches.
An early own goal from a Sasha Smith corner put Saints ahead before top scorer Tierney Coulson doubled their advantage.
Coulson struck again with a terrific lob on the hour before Hannah Seymour-Shove completed the scoring - and a fine late save from goalkeeper Kira Markwell preserved her clean sheet.
“It was a very good team performance against a dangerous King’s Lynn side,” said Marjoram.
