Blueharts ladies were keen to build on their first win of the season from last weekend, and did so in a fine fashion.

Away to Shefford and Sandy, Blueharts scored seven goals and only conceded two.

This impressive goal difference has bumped them to fifth in the East Women’s League Division 2W table.

Goalkeeper Jess Miles and her defence had to stay switched on as Blueharts retained the majority of possession while captain and player of the match, Caz Kumar, hammered home a hat-trick with all three being from the top of the D.

A token drag-flick from Jay Livermore added to the tally.

The ladies will be taking their positivity of the last few weeks into this weekend’s game at home to West Herts.
