Leverstock Green Ladies made light work of their trip to Sawbridgeworth on Sunday as they put in an outstanding performance to win 4-0 and move up to second in the Eastern Region Premier League.

Defensively Levy once again proved impenetrable, with captain Jo Williams commanding a back line of Steph Belcher, Lucy Tape and Heather Eaton, who collectively helped to ensure keeper Jess Devoti recorded her third consecutive clean sheet.

At the other end of the pitch, lone striker Nic Hollick was in blistering form, scoring two well-taken goals and involving herself in attacking and defensive duties.

Wide players Gemma Coggins and Natalie Burrows also made outstanding contributions , running the Sawbridgeworth back-line ragged.

Kim Mulgrew produced an assured performance holding the midfield, allowing Charlene Turturici and player of the match Sally Green to dominate the middle of the park, with Green bagging two goals.

Substitutes Donna McAvoy and Holly Markham strengthened Levy’s attack when introduced from the bench.

This was one of Levy’s best performances of the season, against a side they have previously struggled to beat.

It is just the platform the team were looking for ahead of Sunday’s County Cup final against Royston at the County Ground in Letchworth, kick-off 3pm.
