ASHBOURNE Ladies' double-chasers marched on with another big win.

They remain on course for the league title with four games left and have their cup final at Matlock Town's ground on Sunday.

As comprehensive as Sunday's 12-0 win against Belper Town Ladies looks from the scoreline, it took Ashbourne 15 minutes or so to impose themselves on the game.

Once they did, their fast-flowing football saw the goals fly in, six in each half.

Laura Sears and Demi Croxhall each scored four, Lisa Shenton netted a brace and there were also strikes for Nat Ford and Sam Glanville.

The quality of some of the goals was a joy for the spectators to see and performances like this will only increase confidence.

The team were due in action last night at Wirksworth ahead of Sunday's cup final. For that, a coach departs Homebase at 9am.

SQUAD AGAINST BELPER: Swift, Wood, Allsop, Wager, Coles, Fearn, Ford, Clarison, Shenton, Croxhall, Glanville, Sears, Poyser, Kenny.

NEEDING only a point to secure second place in Burton Junior Football League Under-12s Division One, Mayfield Panthers did the job in style with a 4-1 win over Outwoods Eagles Under-12s, the only team who could have caught them.

Mason Smith opened the scoring after a move down the right.

It took good work by keeper Olly Greatrex and his defence to keep the score at 1-0 at half-time, although Outwoods equalised soon after the break.

Kieran Richardson netted twice to put Panthers back in control, before Harry Breeze ghosted in from a free kick to seal the points.

TEAM: Greatrex, Birch, Wallis, White, Pickering, Moody, Robson, Richardson, Smith, Edge, Breeze.

DOVERIDGE Juniors confirmed second place and promotion in Burton Junior Football League Under-11 Division Two with a 7-0 win over Uttoxeter Juniors White.

They were set on their way with a spectacular diving header by Lewie Thornton from a Will Jones cross and did not look back.

Jones, after playing a slick one-two with Jacob Dusroth, soon made it 2-0.

Dusroth added a goal just before half-time and popped up with another just after.

Goalkeeper Henry Elliott ensured a clean sheet with a last-ditch save from Uttoxeter's best effort before Thornton, set up by Billy Snow, scored his second.

When he completed his hat-trick, it made him the team's top scorer this season, on 13.

Frankie Bussell wrapped up the win with the seventh just before the final whistle.
