Cambridge City III wrap up Summer Women’s Division One title




Emma Owens, Becca Grainger and Holly Smith grabbed two goals apiece as Cambridge City III clinched the Cambridge Summer Division One title by beating Cambridge South 8-0.

Owens gave City the lead with a darting solo run to round the keeper and finish with a reverse push into the goal.

Grainger got the second, tapping home after Holly Smith’s shot had hit the post.

Charlotte Rye deflected in Ella Forsyth’s short corner to make it 3-0, and they had a fourth by the break thanks to Smith’s reverse-stick finish.

There was no let up from City in the second half, and they had their fifth as Rye switched a penalty corner to the far post for Owens to finish.

Grainger crossed for Phoebe Aldrich to deflect home with her first touch.

Grainger had her second with a reverse shot from the top of the D, and Owens teed up Smith to complete the scoring.

It means that City sealed the title with two matches to play.

Captain Laura Letchford said: “We expected a tough game today with a few key players missing but across the park everyone stepped up.

“Though she didn’t get a goal, Ellie Harrison was a key contributor and Ella (Forsyth) was a brilliant source of distribution in midfield. After an odd regular season it’s nice to win this title!”

Grace Evans and Freya Stafford were on target as City IV won 2-0 against Royston.

But there was a 1-0 defeat for City V against Royston II.

Cambridge City V won their men’s summer league division after beating Cambridge South III 7-0.

Stuart Rye opened the scoring after being picked out by Stephen Graves, and brothers Hayden and Ethan Smythe were both on the score sheet.

Henry Denny-Gouldson netted twice. His first came after seizing on a loose ball in the circle and the second came just before half time through a volley following a defender’s clearance.

After half time, Bill Davison converted a penalty corner and Denny-Gouldson completed his hat-trick.

City IV clinched a 3-1 win over Cambridge Nomads.

Dilip Goyal gave City the lead before half time with a drag-flick, but Nomads equalised just after the break.

Jacob Marshall-Grint cleared off the line to deny Nomads taking the lead, and City had the lead when Craig Larner converted from a narrow angle after a rebound off the keeper.

Alex Johnson completed the scoring, putting into an empty net after a good save by the Nomads keeper.

City veterans lost 3-0 to South II.
