Top of the table Morecambe Ladies remained unbeaten in the North West Women’s Regional Premier Division after playing two games in the last week.

On Thursday evening The Shrimps ran out 10-1 winners in a rearranged clash with bottom of the table Burnley at Heysham’s Mossgate Pitch.

Nick Barrett’s side scored five goals in each half with the visitors getting a consolation penalty.

They followed the emphatic victory with a hard-fought 2-2 draw with fourth-placed Crewe Alexandra at Lancaster and Morecambe College on Sunday.

Megan Doherty and Laura Callis got the goals for the home side but two soft goals meant Morecambe had to settle for a point.

With seven games to play The Shrimps still know securing back-to-back promotions is in their own hands.

This weekend they face Wigan at 2pm at Garswood United FC.
