Park Ladies began their promotion bid to Cambridgeshire’s top flight in style with a resounding win on the road.

Rob Mitchell’s team took 15 minutes to settle but found their rhythm in a 6-0 victory at Deeping United Ladies in the Championship North Division of the Women’s County League.

Georgia Payne was brought down after a powerful run into the penalty area, before Fran Plitsch converted the spot-kick on 17 minutes.

Plitsch then turned provider as she squared a pass to Payne, whose dipping shot from outside the penalty area found its way past the goalkeeper nine minutes later.

The visitors continued to pressure Deeping after half-time and added a third on 73 minutes as Eilish Brown netted from Payne’s cross following a strong left-sided run from Erin Powell.

Powell then fed Payne who completed her hat-trick with a low shot five minutes from time.

Last weekend also marked a farewell performance from Park’s Darcy Howe, who is heading to university.

Player of the match – Eilish Brown.

Park Ladies host Eaton Socon Ladies in the league on Sunday, September 27, 2pm.
