Striker Jo Rutherford made history this season by becoming the first women’s player to top Royston Town FC’s scoring charts.

The Ladies player hit 40 goals from 27 appearances for the Crows with Craig Hammond firing 37 for the men’s team.

Both players were recognised for their goals scored at the Garden Walk club’s annual awards.

Royston Ladies’ manager Lewis Endacott said: “The team are absolutely delighted to have helped Jo achieve such a remarkable record.

“Throughout the season she has shown everyone what a class act she is with pace and power being the hallmarks of her performances and we just hope she can do the same next season.”
