Joint-manager Liam Williams said: “We feel like it’s a bit overdue but we’re glad it’s finally happened. The girls have worked really hard on staying positive and following the game plan week-in, week-out.

“They played fantastically today, they really deserved that win and we’re looking to build on it now. It’s a case of enjoying the feeling now before moving on and trying to get the next win.”

Fellow manager Josh Oldfield added: “We’ve been pleased with the performances for weeks having not got the results we deserved, but today we got that.

“We knew that scoring the first goal was going to be crucial, we did that and never looked back. The performance was strong and full of character, aggression and intent. We totally dominated the game, and the scoreline matches the performance.”

Cobblers travel to Sheffield FC in the FAWNL Plate preliminary round this Sunday.
