Derbyshire Ladies League: Sports keep setting the standard

A round-up of the weekend's action in the Derbyshire Ladies League:

In Division One, Mickleover Sports continue to set the pace after a narrow win against Belper Town.

Wirksworth remain hot on their heels after an emphatic win against a depleted AFC Mercia, while Pride Park came from behind twice to secure a narrow injury-time win at Chesterfield Development, with Summer Evans netting a hat-trick.

Mickleover remain top with ten points from five games, a point ahead of Wirksworth who have also played five. Pride Park’s win lifts them from eighth spot into third place on six points from three games, ahead of Draycott on four points and the remaining five teams on three points.  

In Division Two, Chesterfield Inspire Blues recorded the biggest win of the day as K Harrison-Sinclair scored four as Blues rattled six past Woodlands Reserves without reply.

Matlock Town maintained their unbeaten start to the season with a win over University of Derby at Cavendish Fields. 

Stanton Ilkeston seem to be finding their feet after a difficult start and will be doubly satisfied by a first win of the season, avenging a heavy opening day defeat against Sandiacre Town - the Saints’ first defeat of the season.

Belper Town Development ended a run of three defeats with a second win of the season against Castle Donington.
