Former York City Ladies striker Sophie Tinson has continued her prolific goalscoring form since moving to Harrogate Town Ladies in September.

Tinson struck her fifth hat-trick of the campaign as the North East Regional South leaders raced towards a 12-0 weekend victory at Doncaster Belles. That figure also includes a double hat-trick against Ossett Town in the West Riding County Cup.

It raises her overall tally to twenty-one goals in just ten starts and a single substitute appearance, and is just one short of her final total for City Ladies’ reserves last term.

Former Belles striker Sophie Tinson has again smashed the twenty-goal barrier

Harrogate, who are managed by former York City centre-back Jon Maloney and also include ex-Belles defender Grace Foyer within their starting ranks, remain strong favourites for the title with a ten-point advantage over second-placed Altofts Ladies.

However, Altofts are the only team to beat them in the league this season, and also currently have a couple of games in hand on their championship rivals, although with a massively inferior goal-difference.
