A promising start for the visitors ended in an 8-0 reverse at Whittlesey Athletic Ladies in the Cambridgeshire Women’s County League Premier Division on Sunday.

It was Whittlesey who took the lead after bursting through the visiting defence to slot home.

Amy Newell was unlucky not to equalise for Leverington when her effort rolled just wide of the target, a chance the hosts made them pay for.

Shaun Harley’s team scored a second, before a quickfire double led to a 4-0 half-time lead.

On Sunday, October 18, Leverington welcome Cambridge University to Church Road, 11am.
