FC United of Manchester captain Kirsty Chambers put in a five-star performance as her team thrashed Alnwick Town 6-2 in the Women’s National League Division One North.
Chambers scored five times, and got the assist for Chloe Wild’s goal as the side moved up to fourth in the table.
She wrapped up a hat-trick in eight first half minutes, and added a fourth just before the break leaving the visitors shell-shocked and chasing the game.
Wild added her goal 20 minutes into the second half, with Chambers scoring her final goal with nine minutes left.
There may be frustration that Alnwick were able to pull two goals back in the last ten minutes but it won’t take the gloss off a victory.
After a tough opening day defeat, Tom Fitton’s side are now finding their feet in the division after successfully applying for promotion to this level for the first time.
Stockport County Ladies added another point after taking a 2-2 draw at Chester-le-Street Ladies.
Maria Figuereudo added a second goal for the season and Olivia Dixon netted her third, with a brace for Nichole Havery securing a point for the home side.
It’s a second away draw for County, who got their first point on the board in a midweek draw at Chorley two weeks ago.
Ronnie Green’s side have yet to win and are in tenth place so far.
Both clubs are next in league action in two weeks time.
County host Barnsley, who have only picked up one point so far.
FC United travel to Norton & Stockton Ancients, who are mid table with six points so far.
