Rovers Ladies went goal-crazy in their final pre-season friendly, defeating FC United 10-0.

Gemma Donnelly’s side scored four times before the break and six in the second half to complete another worthwhile workout ahead of the big kick-off against Huddersfield this weekend.

Rovers raced into an early three-goal lead. Sophie Jones headed home the opener on nine minutes, before Dan Sheen and then Nicky Emery both rounded the keeper in quick succession.

Centre of Excellence graduate Millie Chandarana headed in from a corner just past the half-hour mark to put Rovers in complete control.

The hosts had to wait until the 65th minute for their fifth, as Jones smashed home from the edge of the area, before new signing Rhian Hallows got in on the act.

Vicky Westerman rounded off a well-worked move with a superb touch and finish on 76 minutes, before Amie Barratt rifled home the rebound after a corner was cleared on 85 minutes.

As the contest entered the closing stages, there was still time for Rovers to add two more. Hallows fired past the keeper from inside the area on 89 minutes, before Sheen completed the rout with another great strike in added time.

ROVERS: Hutcheson, Middleton, Chandarana, Taylor, McLellan, Twohig, Shepherd, Fleming, Emery, Sheen, Jones.

Subs: Hallows, Barratt, Westerman.
