Former Belles striker maintains prolific form
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.
