There was a first for the thriving St Ives Town Ladies club last Friday night as their Development team took part in a cup final.

Lisa Trigg’s side were beaten 2-0 by Wisbech Town Ladies in the Cambridgeshire Women’s League Championship Cup showpiece.

They conceded twice in the first half of a fixture played at the Ellgia Stadium in Ely and only a couple of smart saves from goalkeeper Sophie Marjoram prevented further damage.

Player of the match for the St Ives side was the impressive Caitlin McGeown.

They now focus on their push for promotion in the Championship South and kept up their chase with a 3-2 win against Cambridge Rangers last Sunday.
