Colney Heath Ladies progressed to round two of the County Cup in style with a 7-0 thrashing of Watton.

Holly Sheridan was the Magpies’ stand out player as she netted a second-half hat-trick to complete a foul-goal haul.

Looking to bounce back after last week’s disappointing FA Cup exit, Heath started the game brightly, forcing Watton into their own half and gaining a few corners.

Watton started to get a foothold, but, after winning the ball on the right side, Megan Kiff put Sophie Joseph through on goal. Her initial effort was saved but she had the composure to find the corner at the second attempt.

Some tidy play from Colney was snuffed out at the edge of Watton’s box but after a scramble for possession it was 2-0 after a thunderous outside of the boot finish from Sheridan.

Colney Heath all but wrapped up the game before the break as Molly Slade dispatched Kelly Hancock’s long throw.

The second half was all one-way traffic as Sheridan notched her second of the game.
