Women's teams lead the way for Cambridge City Hockey Club





Cambridge City’s five women’s teams enjoyed a weekend to remember last Saturday as all of them chalked up victories.

They were led by a second team that chalked up a 6-0 home win at the expense of Havering in the East Women’s League Premier Division.

Emma Owens opened the scoring with a far-post tap-in from Imogen Callaghan’s cross before a double from May Busher – one of which was an audacious lob – put City in command.

Rachel Millington-Clarke got in on the goalscoring act from Lexi Small’s cross, while Jess White’s drag flick made it 5-0 before Ella Houghton completed the rout from a penalty corner.

It was the same margin of victory for Cambridge City III as they put hosting Watton to the sword in the East Women’s League Division 1 North.

Captain Katie Maude-Barker set the tone for table-topping City with an early penalty corner deflection.

A brace of reverse stick finishes from Chanre Bond made it 3-0, with the scoring being completed by a combination of Emily Barker, Anita Nicholls and Holly Beckett.

Cambridge City IV won their East Women’s League Division 2 North West derby at Cambridge South III by a 4-3 margin.

Earlier goals from City’s Maia Polonius, Stephanie Birkwood and Charlotte Frost were all cancelled out but with just 10 seconds remaining Anna Hall caught the South goalkeeper off balance and rolled the ball in.

In the East Women’s League Division 3 North West, Cambridge City V chalked up a 2-1 home win at the expense of Kettering.

Two goals from Anna Gomez proved to be the difference for a triumphant City side.

Meanwhile, in the East Women’s League Division 4 North West, Cambridge City VI completed the clean sweep by running out 3-1 winners over visiting St Neots IV.

However, the club’s men’s side were not able to follow suit with just two wins being recorded.

The first of those came from Cambridge City IV in the East Men’s League Division 2 North West as they won 3-1 at home against Long Sutton.

Kristijan Alfeldi broke the deadlock with further goals coming courtesy of Ollie Perry and Simeon Conway-Jones to get the better of their fellow strugglers.

The other win came in the East Men’s League Division 4 North West as two goals from Nigel Gadsby – both from penalty corners – secured a 2-0 triumph for Cambridge City VI at the expense of Bourne Deeping III.

Elsewhere, Cambridge City II, III and Veterans all suffered defeats while Cambridge City V played out a 1-1 draw with Cambridge Nomads III in the East Men’s League Division 4 North West.

Doug Williamson was on target for City from a penalty corner.

On Sunday, Cambridge City Women’s Over-35s exited the National Cup followed a 3-0 defeat to their Bedford counterparts.
