"I'm very proud of them all and they should be proud of themselves."

"From where we have come from in the short space of time to where we are now and the way we have been playing is remarkable and that is testament to players.

"Overall, up until now, we have had a super season.

"The Whitchurch result and performance is good preperation for the game.

"It's an exciting game to look forward to for everyone, a clash of, in my opinion, the two best teams in this division.

"Next week is massive for us. We know as a team what we have to do and I believe in my players that they will do the job.

"We took the chances when they came our way which is very pleasing.

"We had to work hard for the result  but from the first whistle we were right at it.

"Following on from last week where we didn't hit the levels we know we can, it was much better and definitely more like us.

"We scored some excellent goals and some of our link up play was brilliant at times.

"I'm delighted with the win and the performance from the team," said Evans.

Town Ladies manager Sean Evans was delighted with the win and proud of what his team have achieved so far.

Next week is the clash of the top two when second-placed Stone Dominoes visit London Road for what promises to be an exciting encounter.

The full-time whistle blew and it was job done for the ladies, making it an incredible 13 wins out of 13 and the ideal preparation for next weekend's game.

Town's final two goals of the afternoon both came from the penalty spot. Captain Penny Owen made it Six with a calm finish into the right hand corner and Natalie Turner sealed her hat-trick with a low drive into the bottom left hand corner, completing the score to make it 7-0 to Shrewsbury Town.

Town continued to create chances with Olivia Minshall almost getting herself a goal.

The second half was a more quieter affair with the game seemingly wrapped up in the first half.

At half-time Evans switched the formation back to 3-5-2 with Jess Brown coming on for Winton.

HALF-TIME: Whitchurch 0-7 Shrewsbury Town

Just before half-time, Daisy Bradshaw got in on the act to make it five. After good link-up play down the left the ball fell to Bradshaw on the edge of the box who smashed the ball into the top corner.

Turner grabbed her second of the game after strong hold up play in the box. She spun her marker and knocked it past the goalkeeper.

Tash Broome almost got in on the act from an Owen corner. The ball was played to the back post where Broome rose to meet it and powered it to the top corner of the net, only to find a Whitchurch player on the line to clear.

Town continued to carve out chance after chance, with goalkeeper Beth Cleveley having a very quiet afternoon.

The third goal came from Sewell against her former club. A shot from just outside the box looped over the keeper and into an empty net.

Prolific striker Natalie Turner got herself a goal after great work from Sewell and Prior found Turner who finished well into the bottom corner of the net.

Town never rested on their laurels and goals two and three followed shortly after.

After three minutes, Town took the lead. After good link up play the ball fell to Prior who did the simple thing and knocked it into the net past the stranded keeper to make it 1-0.

Town started the game well, pressing high up the pitch and not giving Whitchurch time to relax.

Town's in form front pair of Natalie Turner and Tania Prior led the line.

Evans changed the system around for the start of the game, reverting to a 4-4-2 formation with Kim Winton coming in to the starting line-up.

After last week's Newcastle win, and with the teams around Town in the league not playing, it was a big three points for the team to extend their lead at the top to six points.

Shrewsbury Town Ladies kept up their 100 per cent league record with another big win at local rivals Whitchurch on Sunday.
