Isabella Simmons and Zoe Wood score braces as Cambridge United Women end winless run in style with 5-1 success at Actonians

Cambridge United halted a run of four FA Women’s National League Division One South East outings without a victory courtesy of Sunday’s thumping 5-1 win on the road at Actonians.

The victory – United’s sixth of the campaign – has moved them up above their hosts in the standings and into fifth place.

However, they had to do it the hard way after finding themselves 1-0 down at the break following Amber Dredge’s goal for Actonians.

But the U’s were in clinical form during the second half, with their comeback being kickstarted by Isabella Simmons.

A brace from Zoe Wood, one of which came from the penalty spot, then put Cambridge in command of proceedings before new loan signing Abbi Smith marked her debut after arriving from Ipswich Town by scoring the fourth.

The rout was then completed by Simmons, who picked out the bottom corner from the edge of the penalty area with a well-struck effort.

Darren Marjoram’s team will now take a break from action until 21 February when they will play host to 10th-placed AFC Sudbury at the Premier Plus Stadium in St Neots.
