Cambridge City 10 : 0 Silver End

Cambridge City Ladies won the Eastern Region League Division One title in emphatic style on Sunday with a 10-0 win against Silver End with four games still remaining. After a slow start by the home side they finally got off the mark with an own goal following Charlotte Gilliesís cross from the right which was soon followed up by a goal from Sarah Mosley. Despite Cityís domination against just nine players from Silver End, clear cut chances were not that easy to come by and the score remained 2-0 at half time.

The flood gates opened in the second half as the hosts launched attack after attack and wrapped up the game and the league title with a further eight goals. The second half scorers were Carla Penny (2), Philippa Witherspoon (2), Sarah Mosley with another, Charlotte Gillies, Stacey Fullicks and with her first of the season Robyn Phillips wrapping it up.

A great achievement by the City Ladies securing the league title and their second successive promotion which will see them compete in the Eastern Region Premier Division next season.

Under 16s

Histon Hornets 1 : 3 Cambridge City

The under 16s made the short trip to Histon on Saturday, where goals from Erin Fox, Morgan Want and Molly White were enough to overcome a talented home side. City now need just one point from their remaining two matches to secure yet another league title.

Under 15s

Cambridge City 2 : 0 St Ives Rangers

City, sitting top of the league, welcomed second placed St Ives to Trinity Old Field. In reality, this was the first of a couple of meetings between the rivals that will no doubt decide the league title. Perfect weather, perfect pitch and the football wasn't too bad either.

It was the home side that started off the better, taking the game to the visitors right from the off. The pressure eventually produced a goal for the Lilywhites when Sofia Castiglione scored from a free kick, which although the ball was already goal bound, it glanced off the head of a St Ives defender first. City also managed to hit the underside of the bar too before half time, but the ball chose to bounce out, not in. At the break it remained 1 - 0.

The second half saw St Ives having more possession of the ball, but although an equaliser looked possible, they were unable to capitalise on a couple of chances that came their way. The game was wrapped up for the Lilywhites a few minutes from time when Castiglione stepped up to the plate once again and floated in another free kick, not too dissimilar to the first, except that this one had such a perfect flight on it that it didn't need any additional help.

This match was a good advert for Girls football, with both sides showing a real desire to win. Special mention should go City midfielder (and goalscorer) Sofia Castiglione who produced a masterclass performance for the homeside. Her work rate, tenacity, skill and application was a pleasure to witness. Not surprisingly she was awarded the Player of the Match.

Under 13s

Hungate Rovers 0 : 8 Cambridge City

City travelled deep into the Fens to play Hungate, who unfortunately, due to illness and holidays, only had 6 players. Initially City started with 9 and quickly went 2-0 up due to goals from Amie Fullwood and Jess Woods. Clearly the additional numbers were not fair to Hungate, especially on such a hot day, so after 10 mins City withdrew two players and went down to 7 to try and make it more of an even game. Hungate battled bravely and at half time the score had been kept down to a reasonable 3 - 0, a further goal being added by Amie Fullwood.

In the second half, despite Hungate's best efforts, they tired somewhat and this left a few gaps for City to exploit. Second half goals from Kayleigh Peters, Tiana Walker and a brace from Katie Levitt, increased the City scoreline, with Milly Struthers also getting in on the act with her first goal of this season.

Overall, you could not fault the effort put in by the Hungate girls who all put in a fantastic performance. City now play Yaxley on Saturday hoping for revenge after their two defeats against them in previous games. The girls are looking forward to playing the Peterborough side on a bigger pitch with a full squad available.

The Player of the Match award versus Hungate was given to Jess Woods

Under 11s

Cambridge City v St Ives Rangers

The home side continued their very impressive maiden season together with yet another good performance and result. Well done to both sides.
