A girls' football team from a school in Saffron Walden have been crowned county champions.

R A Butler Academy travelled to Chelmsford on a rather soggy day to the county football finals.

And they capped a brilliant afternoon of play by bringing back a very large trophy, as well as earning progression to the regional finals in the spring term.

James Smith, sports lead at the school, said: "With so much commitment and enthusiasm I am so proud that all their teamwork and training has paid off.

"They really earned this win".

Saffron Walden PSG U14 girls enjoyed a more-than-comfortable 4-1 win at home to Cambourne Town.

The Herberts Farm-based side are playing in the top division following promotion at the end of last season and so far, they are rising to meet the challenge.

They remain unbeaten having picked up a draw against last season's champions Newmarket and a win one week earlier against previous table toppers Bottisham.

This success saw all the games come in the second half, a surprise considering the amount of possession and opportunities they created.

The second half started in much the same fashion, but this time PSG made their dominance count.

Skipper Neve Lamb curled home the opening goal while the second came from a typically composed finish from Mariya Kovacheva, who had a great game going box-to-box in the middle of the park.

Lilla-May Bell, playing in an unfamiliar number 10 position, got the goal her performance deserved from the penalty spot following a handball.

Cambourne pulled a goal back before Lamb sealed the win with the goal of the game, courtesy of a rocket from outside of the box.

A spokesman said: "It was another fantastic overall team effort with Olivia Wheeler's deliveries from the left and Rosie Wilds' tireless running closing down upfront.

"The defence of Emma Patmore, Amy Proudfoot, Maja Kubat and Eliska Masarikova formed a formidable back line and gave the talented Cambourne forwards little chance to threaten Lucy Tobitt.

"Player of the match went to Amy Jury for an exceptional display on the wing, full of pace, trickery and end product."

There was a performance of individual brilliance to give High Easter a 3-0 win over Little Waltham in Championship Pool C of the Chelmsford Sunday League.

Emilio Caceres-Sola scored all three in a well contested match, getting them off to a great start when he fired home following a good run down the left flank by Mahen'a Kadimba.

Little Waltham had a goal chalked off for offside before High Easter scored a second, Caceres-Sola lobbing the home keeper.

He thought his hat-trick had gone when a shot rattled the underside of the crossbar but he got his reward after the break to finish off a great win.

High Easter entertain Redstones on Sunday.
