St Neots Ladies 2nds brushed aside bottom side Aylesbury 2nds to continue a fine Five Counties Women’s League campaign last Saturday.
A 3-0 success – featuring a brace of Sue Glover goals and a Hannah Sutton effort – stretched their unbeaten start in Division One to nine games.
But the 3rds were beaten 2-1 by promotion rivals Bedford 5ths in Division Three. Kira Herbert hit their goal.
St Neots 1sts went down 6-3 at another Bedford side - the 2nds - Division One North of the East Women’s League despite a fine display from debutant goalkeeper Amy Harley. Caz Osborne struck twice in the first half for the Saints side and Katie Bales hit a consolation.
The 4ths were bashed 8-0 by Cambridge City 5ths in Division Four North-West (South).

There were defeats for the other two St Neots male sides. The 1sts remain in relegation trouble in Division Three North-West after being pipped 2-1 by Cambridge City Vets.
All of the goals arrived in the first half with Mark Witherow briefly firing Saints level. He was then denied a late equaliser by a great save.
St Neots 4ths are still bottom of Division Six North-West (South) after a 7-0 reverse against leaders Kettering 3rds.
