Ladies lose at Keynsham

West Ham United Ladies' title hopes took another hit as they were beaten 4-1 at Keynsham Town in the FA Women's Premier League Southern Division on Sunday.

Kelley Blanchflower netted for the Hammers with six minutes remaining, but it was not enough to prevent Mark Saunderson's side from falling to defeat at The Crown Field.

The Hammers had travelled to Somerset hopeful of building on their 1-1 home draw with Tottenham the previous weekend, but it was not to be as Keynsham condemned the Londoners to their third league loss of the season.

For Keynsham, the victory saw the hosts pick up their first points of the campaign after losing their opening five matches.

Leanne Lapham was the home side's hero, netting a hat-trick, while the Hammers' misery was complete when goalkeeper Toni-Anne Wayne was injured in a collision with Rachel Stowell just before half-time. Wayne's place between the sticks was taken by Jessica Parlane.

The defeat left West Ham seventh in the Southern Division standings. Saunderson's side are on the road again this Sunday, 20 October, when they make the shorter trip to leaders Gillingham.

Ladies: Wayne (Parlane 46), King (Albert 58), Skillen, Reed, West (Lipley-Hinton 46), Masters, Bottom, Morgan, Crinean, Merritt, Blanchflower
