Ella Gavaghan starred for Leverington Ladies as they earned their first win since the latest Covid-19 lockdown in style. 

Gavaghan scored four as the Fenland side triumphed 6-2 at Fulbourn Institute Bluebirds on Sunday, April 25. 

Despite players missing due to injury and family commitments, Leverington’s early pressure paid off as Gavaghan latched onto a pinpoint pass by Chelsea King to take the lead. 

After Faye Kowalewsky doubled the advantage, the recent signing then fired home just before half-time. 

Fulbourn, who were previously unbeaten in their last four Cambridgeshire Women’s County League Premier Division games, reduced the deficit but Gavaghan was on hand to seal her treble after the break.
