Asfordby Amateurs Under 12s girls travelled to joint league leaders Harborough town for a top-of-the-table clash.

The visitors scored a great early goal through attacking midfielder and leading scorer Hope Metcalf and never looked back.

Asfordby continued to press and when Sophie Townsend found herself one-on-one with the defender, she took the player on and smashed the ball past the keeper with ease.

Metcalf then scored a great goal to make it 3-0 and put the game out of Harborough Town’s reach.

Amateurs withstood some late pressure and on the counter-attack the impressive Ruby Attewell used her pace to take on three players and slot home to make it 4-0.

Asfordby’s Erin Baker completed the win with a great goal to make it 5-0, and Evie McDaid was player-of-the-match.

Amateurs are now unbeaten in the league and are three points clear having only conceded one league goal all season.

They next face AFC Leicester away on Sunday, October 23.

Amateurs: L. Scallon, E. Wright (c), C. Smith, E. McDaid, H. Metcalf, R. Attewell, S. Townsend, A. O’Sullivan, L. Farrow, L. Aldridge, M. Goulding, E. Baker.
