East Grinstead are the only team left with a 100% record after day two of the Jaffa Super 6s Women’s Premier Division at the Phoenix Sport and Leisure Centre in Telford.

Two more wins on Sunday put them two points clear at the top of the table, having beaten Canterbury 5-2 and Reading 6-0.

With GB Olympic aces Kate and Helen Richardson-Walsh in their line-up, East Grinstead will be aiming to continue their good form and reach the finals which this year take place on 28 January at London's Copper Box Arena.

Two goals from Kate Richardson-Walsh – plus others from Bara Kavanova, Pippa Chapman and captain Zoe Burrell - helped East Grinstead beat Canterbury.

Helen then also scored twice in their 6-0 win over Reading, with Kavanova scoring a brace and Chapman and Ellie Cockburn adding the others.

Bowdon Hightown and Leicester are also unbeaten, although draws on day one mean they are second and third respectively.

Bowdon were 5-1 winners over Reading in the day’s opening match, with 47-year-old GB Olympian Tina Cullen scoring two in that game.

And in their second match, Bowdon had another GB Olympic ace to thank for victory, with Sally Walton scoring a hat-trick to take her tally to four for the day and an impressive nine for the weekend.

That was only bettered by Leicester’s Lauren Turner, who has 12 already. She scored a hat-trick in their first match of the day, beating Clifton Robinsons 5-4. She then scored all six as Leicester beat Canterbury 6-2.

After losing both their games on Saturday, Holcombe turned things around well with two victories on Sunday.

They were 2-1 winners against last season’s champions Slough, then battled back from two-nil behind to win 5-3 against Sutton Coldfield in the day’s final match.

Ellie Watton scored a hat-trick in the comeback win, taking her tally to four for the day and five for the weekend.

Slough bounced back from their loss to Holcombe with a 3-1 win over Clifton Robinsons, with Georgina Bathurst scoring two and Charly Brydon the other.
