It has brought the Magpies into contact with the mid-table pack and represents a fantastic reversal in fortunes.

Manager Paul Gleeson said: “Three straight wins and now 24 points on the board is a huge achievement for the ladies. I’m very proud of them.”

The only goal of the game came from young striker Mel Godino.

She pounced after a shot from Rianne Townsend-Brown was saved, squeezing the rebound in from a tight angle.

Gleeson was full of praise for his up and coming starlet.

He said: “Mel has joined us this year, and has shown great maturity for a 19-year-old.

“She has progressed superbly and her attitude is first class.

“She will go from strength to strength.”
