Tina Cullen’s incessant goal scoring exploits continued in Cheshire on Saturday, her hat-trick contributed half of Bowdon Hightown’s goals as they soared to victory over their opponents from the East, Old Loughtonians. Slough ran out convincing winners against Ipswich, Jane Smith, another consistent goalscorer season on season, rounded off the six goal tally with a 67th minute penalty stroke. Clifton got off the mark for the season with three first half goals to see off their opponent, and fellow promoted side, Poynton. Leicester proved that you don’t need to rely on one goalscorer to win games; they had five different names on the scoresheet leading to their 5-3 win over Chelmsford, Hannah Macleod started the scoring after only two minutes. Canterbury’s Sarah Kerly scored her second of the season in their 2-1 win over Olton & WW, ensuring the young forward – of famous heritage – continues to establish a name in her own right.
