Deed Hill, Liv Banks and Millie Bushnell were on target as Saffron Walden Hockey Club ladies jumped back to the top of East League Division 1N with a 3-1 victory at previous leaders Norwich City.

The game was end-to-end from the start and a deadly counter-attack allowed Walden to strike first through Hill.

The visitors added to Hill’s opener when Banks took a one-on-one with the keeper with expert calmness.

Then, Bushnell made it three with a deflected short corner. The second half was all about City’s attacking and strong away defence and while Norwich did grab a consolation, goalkeeper Clare Pargeterl made a number of good saves to secure the win.
