Gonerby Girls under-14s got off to a shaky start against Caythorpe in the Lincolnshire County Cup – but went on to secure their first victory of the season.

They were soon a goal down to a Jennifer Evans strike. Gonerby got in their stride and Kerry Smith equalised five minutes before half time.

The second half provided equal opportunities for both sides, but a well worked through-ball saw Helena Thomas take advantage to put home side Gonerby in front. Minutes later, Gonerby captain Hannah Keal sealed victory.
