The deadlock was broken as Charlotte Copland’s cross was turned into her net by the centre-back.

Nicole Evans volleyed in from 12 yards on her return to the Town and Kerry Luckett bagged a brace.

With 10 minutes to go, Kelly Worthington heading in from six yards after a mistake by the keeper.

Loren Graham rounded off an impressive performances with a strike from 25 yards that found the top corner.
