MALVERN Town Women continued in their quest to become league champions as they ran riot at Kidderminster United. 

The current Midwest Counties Female Football League leaders were 5-0 up at the break thanks to goals from Jess Kenny, Karli Smith (2) Becky Evans and Saff Boswell.

And there was no let-up after the break. Maggie Smith fired home from the edge of the box and defender Amy Loader scored her first for the club before Kenny grabbed the eighth and Millie Meadows made it 9-0.

Alice Meadows scored two in the closing stages to wrap up the comprehensive win that keeps Malvern one point clear of Cradley Town Ladies at the top of the standings. 

It could have been a tricky afternoon on a difficult surface for Mark Taylor's side, but the boss was chuffed with how his team adapted to the situation. 

"It was an outstanding performance on what could have been a tricky afternoon," he said.

"We arrived to find a very bobbly surface and it was clear our game plan had to be adapted to suit conditions and the players took to that very well.

"Whilst we largely like to build from deep with good possession, we had to be a little more direct on this occasion and we certainly showed we have more than one string to our bow in the manner that we went about it.

"Aside from that, the way in which we used the squad today was a testament to the quality within the group.

"Top scorers Jade Smith and Alice Meadows weren’t introduced until late on and we had good run-outs for six players under the age of 18, plus the players returning to the side put in top performances too, along with another clean sheet.

"The coaching staff are very pleased to say the least, it was a very good afternoon’s work."
