Chief among them was a derby day win for the ladies against their Hitchin Town counterparts.

Amy Jack scored two as did Emily Field and there was one for Amber Clark as they started their Beds & Herts Women's Cup campaign with a 5-2 success.

Joanne Harrower and Janiece Allen replied for the Canaries.

The U11 Reds were actually playing their first ever match and secured a confident 2-2  draw against Watford while the U15 Whites beat Herts Girls 3-2.

A solitary goal was enough for the U13 Whites to see off Harpenden and there was also a clean sheet for the U11 Blues in their game against Garston.

The Belles continue to grow and welcome girls of all ages to join.
