St Ives Rangers Under 16 Girls are celebrating title glory for the third successive season.

A Lauren Gibson hat-trick and two Jasmine Hope goals earned the local lasses victory against big rivals Cambridge City in a Cambridgeshire Women’s & Girls League title play-off last Saturday.

They prevailed 5-3 in a winner-takes-all clash, played at Jubilee Park in Huntingdon, that went to extra-time after the two teams had finished locked together at the top of the standings.

It also provided a sweet slice of revenge after St Ives had been pipped 3-2 by City in a recent League Cup final.

The Rangers side, coached by Terry Baker and Andy Smith, who both have daughters playing, are now preparing for a new challenge when stepping up into senior women’s football next season.
