Park Ladies made it back-to-back wins since the latest lockdown with a five-star display. 

It was not the most comfortable of wins for Rob Mitchell’s side, but they got the job done against Swavesey Spartans Ladies in the Championship North Division of the Cambridgeshire Women’s County League. 

Fran Plitsch opened the scoring for Park before debutant Jess Cooper’s throw found Casey Ward, whose half-volley found the net. 

Swavesey halved the deficit soon after half-time, before the hosts struck back almost immediately when Plitsch grabbed her second. 

The visitors were not finished, though, as after benefiting from a foul to make it 3-2, they found a leveller thanks to a low finish past Park goalkeeper Nikki Hassock. 

Stimson then got on the scoresheet before Sherrie Downey pounced on a defensive error to give the villagers a 5-3 lead. 

Spartans did continue to battle and earned a consolation at the death.
