Saffron Walden Ladies III 9 Cambridge City IV 3
Saffron Walden Ladies put in a great performance to defeat Cambridge City at the weekend.
Walden managed an early goal from Charlotte Wisbey, but were unable to capitalise on their strength until the dying minutes of the first half with a rebound shot from Natalie Chandler, and a flick over the keeper's feet from Annie Withington.
Leading 3-1 in the second half, Walden continued to dominate play and two more goals came from the well-practiced short-corner routine with hard accurate shots from Gabby Byland.
