Saffron Walden PSG took on Newmarket Town in a pair of fixtures at the weekend.

The under-nines hosted their rivals on a wet and windy day and saw Laceymae and Kirsty score in the first half.

Rebecca, Molly and Megan held firm to protect Poppy’s goal and Georgie added another goal after the break.

The under-12 Blacks travelled to Suffolk and saw their defence put under pressure early on.

PSG worked hard to make chances of theirown and Elea netted their first goal, before Mae’s long-range effort beat the home keeper.

Elea curled another shot into the bottom corner before half time, but the home side hit back from a free kick as some late consolation.

PSG Black’s win takes them to 18 points, level with Bottisham Girls and only one point behind leaders Haverhill Rovers.
