Chesterfield FC Women beat Wirksworth 12-2 on Sunday in the second round of the Women's Derbyshire Cup.

The Spireites started strongly with Paige Singleton finding the back of the net in the first five minutes and this was quickly followed up by a cool Gina Camfield finish to give Chesterfield an early two-goal lead.

The Spireites looked comfortable in possession and played some nice football before doubling their lead with two more goals in quick succession from Camfield and Singleton.

Wirksworth fought back and pulled a goal back when a long-range effort found itself in the back of the Chesterfield net. The Spireites responded immediately with a superbly-struck Robyn Henton free kick to go 5-1 up.

Camfield and Singleton both netted again to secure their hat-tricks, giving the Spireites a 7-1 lead at half-time.

The second half started sluggishly with the game becoming very scrappy before a delightful Beth Smyth ball played Kel Fidler through to finish from a tight angle.

Izzy Lonsdale then secured herself a second-half hat-trick in a ten-minute spell that started with a penalty followed by two cool finishes to make the score 11-1.

Wirksworth managed to get themselves a second goal following some sloppy defending at the back, but again the Spireites responded quickly with Camfield shooting from distance, placing the ball into the top corner to get her fourth of the game and the 12th for Chesterfield.
