Darren Marjoram’s team thumped Cambridge University Women 15-0 in a Cambridgeshire Women’s Premiership rout.

Katherine Speed led the scoring spree with a four-goal haul while Georgia Stancombe completed a first-half hat-trick after opening the scoring in the second minute.

Amy Seymour-Shove and Katie Stancombe also hit trebles with substitutes Sasha Smith and Megan Stow getting in on the goalscoring act.

“This was by far the best display the ladies have ever produced,” said manager Marjoram. “Every single player performed to an exceptional level.
