It was an impressive scoreline for the Falcons, who last season won promotion as Hampshire Women’s League Division 2 champions with Bedhampton runners-up.

Falcons clinched their second promotion in three seasons - they were only formed in 2016 - by winning 18 of their 22 league games.

In addition, they also won the Hampshire Junior Cup with a 3-1 victory over AFC Stoneham thanks to goals from Shannen Woods (2) and Ellie Harty.

Falcons are currently third in the county Division 1 table, having lost just once in five games. They are also still in the Hampshire Women’s Trophy after Jessey (2) and McAllister struck in a recent 3-0 win against Cowes.
