AFC Sudbury 1 : 11 Cambridge City
Cambridge City Ladies returned to the top of the Eastern Region Premier League in some style on Sunday afternoon with an impressive 11-1 away win at Sudbury. City travelled to sun-drenched Suffolk in confident mood having won all their previous games so far this season. On the 3G surface, City scored some excellent team goals, while producing some of their best football of the current campaign. Leading the way, was top goal scorer Laura Mills who bagged herself four goals, ably supported by Anna Goggin, Carla Penny and Erin Davies who each grabbed a brace, along with Shannon Shaw who also found the net. Sudbury remained determined to the very end, but they were not a match for the 'in form' Lilywhites.

City will look to maintain their challenge at the top of the league table when they entertain AFC Dunstable at Trinity College next Sunday (28th Oct) with a 2pm KO.
Cambridge City 16 : 1 Peterborough Northern Star
The under 15s welcome Peterborough Northern Star for their first ever visit to Trinity
City welcomed PNS to Trinity on Saturday for the first ever meeting between the two clubs. The Peterborough side are a new outfit to the league and are clearly still in the process of building. Although the visitors showed great determination and team spirit, they came up against a City side who were in a goalscoring mood. The Lilywhites goals were shared between eight outfield players, with Jess Fitzpatrick netting the most - four. The Player of the Match award was picked up by Jess Wood.
Cambridge City 13 : 0 Eynesbury Rovers
The under 14As notched up a comfortable victory against a hard working Eynesbury side and in doing so, ensured they maintained their 100% start to the season. They have now won their first four league matches and in the process have found the net an impressive 41 times. Equally impressive is that their defence is yet to be breached. Next week, they travel to the north of the county to take on Parson Drove.
Action from City's match against Eynesbury
Cambridge City 1 : 3 Milton Colts
With the score all square at half time, two second half goals from the visitors delivered a surprise home defeat for City when they hosted near neighbours Milton at Netherhall on Saturday morning. Although it was an entertaining encounter, City just couldn't add to the first half strike from Player of the Match, Madison Shanks.
Cambridge City 7 : 2 Netherton United
This was the reverse of last week's fixture in more ways than one - as Netherton came to town looking for revenge following last week's defeat. Once again, City were thin on the ground with no substitutes due to injuries and holidays, but they stepped up to the mark, eventually!
In the early stages, the sun shone and so did Netherton, who started the match more fluently, scoring early in the first half. City however did not crumble and struck back quickly after some good work from Erin Burling released Lucy Short to go on a mazy run and equalise. Leah Holmes produced some good football down the right flank, from which Lucy Short was again able to capitalise on and dispatch the ball into the corner of the net to give City the lead. Netherton were not in any mood to 'roll over' though, and levelled the score a few minutes later with a fine strike from the left corner of the box.
City were becoming more creative in possession and it was no surprise when they went into the break with a 4 - 2 advantage with the impressive Lucy Short having scored all of City's first half goals.
City seemed to have more fire in their football when they re-appeared after the break, but found more goals hard to come by. Chance after chance seemed to go begging as the half progressed until Erin Burling got on the end of some good attacking play from Lucy Short, to score. Soon after, captain for the day Emily White, got the goal that her hard work warranted when a cross led to confusion in the Netherton defence and Emily tapped in. The game was finally wrapped up when Erin Burling hit the post and an unfortunate Netherton player knocked the ball into her own net.
City remain top of the league with six wins out of six and have already scored 50 goals this season.
Melbourn Dynamos 0 : 19 Cambridge City
City under 12 girls travelled to Melbourn for only their third game of the season and following their cup success two weeks ago, everyone was really up for the game. City started off brightly and created some early chances, with the Melbourn keeper standing resolute. Eventually, Yasmin broke the deadlock and before long she had already chalked up a hat-trick. A brace from Poppy and goals from Kia and Emma gave the girls a comfortable half time lead. The second half showing by the girls even surpassed the display they put on in the first period. Further goals were added by Yas x 4, Bel x 2, Kia x 4 and Amelia and Emma also finding the net. The girls left Melbourn with three points and plenty to celebrate.
Cambridge City v Histon Hornets
In their first home fixture of the season, City played hosts to Histon Hornets. In an entertaining match with some superb football from both sides, City striker Summer is able to say that her goal was so powerful that it broke the net! A great spectacle for the supporters, well done to both teams.
