Dereham Ladies destroyed newly-promoted Saffron Waldron at home by 10-1 in the Women's East Hockey League.

Dereham remain top of the league by two points after five wins from five games and with a goal difference far in excess of second-placed Holcombe.

Dereham were flying last Saturday with a devastating performance from a team which is beginning to reach new heights of excellence.

Evie Gardner and Kath Malvern claimed hat-tricks and Gemma Nicholls and Sam Skelton scored their maiden goals. Holly Allen scored from open play from a pass taken from the feet of the goalie by Evie Gardner, and Hannah Palmer poached a goal with an instinctive shot in front of goal.

But in the Men's East League Premier A, Dereham are still looking for their first points of the season after four matches. Dereham lost 1-0 at West Herts.
