MALVERN Town Women reached the top of the table last weekend following a 6-0 thrashing of Meadow Park Women.

Malvern were wasteful in the first-half and did not convert their dominance into goals, with Jade Smith providing the only goal of the half in the 25th minute.

But Mark Taylor's side came out firing in the second-half and quick goals from Jessica Kenny and Smith made it 3-0.

Smith then completed her hat-trick against her former club as the lead stretched before Sapphire Boswell and Leah Smith completed the scoring for a convincing victory. 

The three points were enough to take Malvern to the top of the Midwest Counties Female Football League and also continued their remarkable form which has seen them go undefeated in their last 11 matches. 

Nine of those have been wins and they now hold the top spot in the division by a single point over Cradley Town Ladies, but Hereford Pegasus Ladies and Redditch Borough Ladies are not far behind with games in hand. 

After the match, manager Taylor admitted he was less than impressed with the first-half display, but was happier with how the second-half went. 

"It was a frustrating first half today as we didn’t reach anywhere near the levels we’ve come to expect of ourselves in recent weeks," admitted manager, Mark Taylor.

"We had to reset during the interval, get the basics right and find some quality. Credit to the players because their performance in the second period was much, much improved."
