Several local junior football teams are managed by players dads but you dont come across many with mums at the helm - and certainly not two of them. ICA Under 8s, newly formed for the 2016/17 season, are the exception. They have been driven forward this season by the all-female management team of mums Stacey Allan and Katie Green.

In the Cambs Cup, Wisbech St Mary stormed through to the fourth round with a stunning 8-2 win at Shelford & Stapleford Strikers while Holbeach Yellow, Spalding Blue and Bourne Red all progressed to the fourth round of the Lincs Cup.

Kai Taylor was the goalscoring hero for Division One leaders Wisbech St Mary, netting five times at Shelford to take his tally for the season to 27 goals.

Striker partner Willis Wright got the other three to make it 23 goals for the season.
