Morecambe Ladies hotshot Megan Doherty scored another five goals to help her side to a comfortable victory over Bolton on Sunday.

Jenny Keane scored the other as the Shrimps ladies returned to league action in style after bowing out of the FA Cup at Coventry the week prior.

Doherty was on her usual fine form, firing in a hat-trick in the first-half which included two spectacular headers.

Morecambe even had the luxury of squandering several chances towards the end of the first period and in to the second before Doherty added a further two more and Keane capped a fine victory.

The resounding win puts Morecambe second in the North West Women’s Regional Premier League with two games in hand on table toppers Tranmere Rovers.

Morecambe Ladies: Clough, Keane, Norris, Gardner S, Paling, Fish, Relph, Gardner E, Callis, Whittingham, Doherty. Roper, Grey, Hindle.
