Sprowston Ladies lead Division One of the Norfolk & Women's Girls League after a 4-2 win over North Walsham Ladies at the weekend.

Sprowston sit top of the tree thanks to their victory although North Walsham Angels made them battle hard thanks to goals from Hannah Sturman and Hope Middleton.

In the other match in Division One Bungay Town came from 3-1 down to end up winning the match 4-3.

Bungay dominated possession in the first period but it was Gorleston that swept into a 3-0 lead thanks to goals from Millie Brooks, Leanne Muffett and Bethany Turner.

Becky Hills managed to pull a goal back for the visitors just before half-time though.

It proved to be the turning point and Bungay were the better team in the second period. They gradually reeled Gorleston in with goals coming from Emily Leach, another for Becky Hills and a Selina Rowland header from a corner.

A great battle by the Bungay side who didn't let their heads drop - with young Teo Ille and Selina Rowland controlling the midfield.
