Stanborough hat-trick seals first Bungay win

Taverham Ladies 0, Bungay Town Ladies 4

Finally, after weeks of agonising defeats, Bungay came away with their first three points in the Eastern Regions League and it was nothing more than the girls deserved.

Despite being without three regulars due to injury and illness Bungay started the game well and the re shuffle didn’t seem to affect them in the slightest.

Early chances were created and it looked like Bungay were slipping into old habits from previous weeks but the Bungay forwards and midfield had other ideas.

Gaps were quickly opening in the Taverham defence and a few controversial offsides meant that a Kim Roberts goal was disallowed.
