Histon Ladies continued their strong start to pre-season with another convincing victory, this time over Norwich at Bridge Road on Sunday afternoon.

A well contested first half had Histon a goal up at the break, Sophie Lanham putting the ball over the Norwich goalkeeper and into the bottom left corner with 33 minutes gone.

Five minutes after half time they doubled their advantage when Lanham scored once again, this time passing a low cross from the right by Sydney Graham into the far bottom left corner.

Graham herself then got on the score sheet on the hour mark, Lanham this time turning provider as her pass the opposite way put in Graham to make a positive run before slotting the ball into the far bottom left corner.

Ali Wright then netted her side’s fourth goal with 72 minutes gone, her 30 yard first time half volley on the turn going over the ‘keeper.

Lucy Julian then bagged a brace herself with two in two minutes after coming on as sub, her first coming on 81 minutes after a cross by Graham that Julian netted second time around before her opportune effort a minute later from the edge of the “D” with the goalkeeper out of position completed the scoring.
