Tess Skyrme shoots Cambridge South IV to success over Newmarket IV
Tess Skyrme scored twice for Cambridge South IV as they won 2-0 against Newmarket IV in East Women’s League, Division 5NW (S).
They headed into the match on the best run in the team’s history, with three straight wins and clean sheets.
In an even start, South managed to have a few shots but were having to work well in defence to snuff out the threat of Newmarket.
Skyrme scored two goals in quick succession and shared the player-of-the-match honours with Nicky Simler and Annabel Wilson, who were working hard in midfield.
South keeper Ana Sear made two good saves in the second half to preserve another clean sheet.
A depleted Cambridge Nomads side conceded a late goal to lost 3-2 to Spalding in East Women’s League, Division 2NW.
Nomads’ Ali Billing scored in a closely-fought first half that ended even. Spalding went 2-1 ahead, but Ellie Martin equalised for Nomads, whose player of the match was Annie Mather for her defensive work.
However, the lack of substitutes took their toll as Spalding scored a late goal to win 3-2.
