HEREFORD have jumped to top spot in the North Division of the West Clubs' Women's Hockey League after beating title rivals Cirencester 2-1.

Goals from Jess Munday and Erica Rogers saw the city side home, with only three points separating the top three teams.

"It was a really good win especially as we're still a bit short on numbers," said Rogers.

"They probably had about 10 to 15 short corners in the second half and put us under a lot of pressure, but our goalkeeper Sophie Chamberlain had a fantastic game."

Leominster claimed a creditable 4-4 draw against BAC as they look to stay in the division.

Nina Emery and Karen Hackley were among Leominster's scorers.
