There was no derby day fever for March Town Ladies as they suffered double defeat to local rivals in the Cambridgeshire Women’s County League.
The Hares were left disappointed after a 2-0 Premier Division defeat to Leverington Ladies on Sunday, May 16, having lost to the same opponent two weeks prior.
Leverington made their presence known, striking after five minutes and carried a threat on the break throughout a confident first half.
Gary Davis’ side did grow as the game developed, although Emily Sandell, who was later forced off due to a fractured ankle, was unable to scramble home just shy of half-time.
After Yazmin Holmes and Eleanor McLeish went close for March after the break, the visitors clung on and denied Emma Searle’s free-kick thanks to a superb save.
