A slice of footballing history was created by St Ives Rangers Under 16 Girls last week.
Darren Marjoram’s team became the inaugural winners of the new Hunts Under 15/16 Girls Cup after roaring to a double-figures showpiece success.
They produced a polished performance to beat Ramsey Under 15s 11-0 in the final staged at Yaxley.
Katherine Speed, Ella Burnley, Fran Chapman and Ellie Brown struck in the first half. Further goals from Speed, Brown, Chapman, Nell Webber, Elle Jefferson (2) and Sophie Marjoram followed in the second period.
Rangers are firmly on course to claim an honours treble.
