Jess Fitzpatrick and Lucy Short among the goals for Cambridge City girls

By CambridgeIndependent Reporter

Raft of wins across the age groups for Lilywhites

Jess Fitzpatrick and Lucy Short were both to the four for their respective Cambridge City sides on what was a good weekend of results for the club.

In the S-Tech Girls’ League, Under-15s Division, the Lilywhites secured a 16-1 win over Peterborough Northern Star in the first meeting between the two.

City were in good form up against a side that showed great determination and team spirit. The goals were shared between eight outfield players, with Fitzpatrick hitting the most, four.

Jess Wood was named City’s player of the match.

In the under-13s’ division, City earned a 7-2 triumph over Netherton United.

The Lilywhites were low on numbers because of injuries and holidays, but stepped up to the mark.

Netherton made a good start to open the scoring, but City were on level terms when Erin Burling’s good work released Short to score after a mazy run.

Leah Holmes teed up Short to grab the second, but Netherton levelled matters minutes later.

City were becoming more creative in possession, and they had a 4-2 lead by half time after two more goals from Short, who took her total to four.

In the second half, Burling finished off some good attacking play by Short for the fifth.

Captain-for-the-day Emily White tapped in after confusion in the box, and the scoring was completed when Burling’s cross was turned into their own net by a Netherton defender.

City remain top of the league with six wins out of six and have already scored 50 goals this season.

City under-14A maintained their 100 per cent start to the season with a 13-0 win over a hard-working Eynesbury Rovers side.

City have now won their first four matches, scoring 41 goals without conceding.

Two second-half goals saw City under-14B beaten 3-1 by Milton.

In an entertaining encounter, City’s goal came through player-of-the-match Madison Shanks.

The under-12s had only their third game of the season, and they secured a 19-0 win over Melbourn Dynamos.

Six players shared the goals around, while the Melbourn keeper produced a resolute display.
