Coach Andy Yarrow said: ‘Today wasn’t a game for the purists. We took a long while to get going & the scoreline flattered us a little.

That being said once it clicked the girls looked dangerous when stretching the Henley defence.

It was a real team effort the impact from the bench made a huge difference to the result.

“It was a big positive to make it 3 from 3 as we have a big month ahead playing two of the leagues big teams (Old Albanians & Hove). The title race is very much on and the next month will have a big say on who gets their hands on the trophy.”
