Wanting to maintain their impressive unbeaten home record, the hosts started brightly and took the lead when Westnedge pushed in past the unsighted keeper.

City were soon back on level terms as a long ball from the back made it through to the attacker who was allowed to turn and cross giving her team mate a tap in.

For the rest of the half Walden enjoyed more possession and created chances but outcomes in the D were few and scores remained level going into the break.

City were proving stubborn in their resistance but Walden’s frustration was eased when Harrington restored the lead after converting Stef Mayle’s cross.

Walden added a third as good interplay between Mayle and Katherine Langridge set up Westnedge to finish on her reverse.

Harrington’s confident finish made it four and put gloss onto a performance that was, for periods, under par but will not detract from a successful season that sees Walden bounce straight back to the Premier Division.
