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).
