Splashes of magic from Anna Dillon inspired temporarily-reformed Malew to lift the inaugural Sandra Raeside Cup with a 7-3 win against Colby.
The Ballasalla outfit, based on the Isle of Man, paid tribute to a magical woman Sandra Raeside, one of the club's longest serving members, who died earlier this year. Malew rolled back the years with players past and present last Sunday and did what they did best - winning silverware! It was particularly fitting that they lifted the cup in her honour.
Colby took an early lead when Claire Scott drove home the opener but Malew hit back on the half hour mark, Tricia Fleming tucking in the equaliser after seizing on Monika Gale's goal kick.
With Dillon imposing herself in midfield after the break, she was involved when Malew took the lead for the first time, teeing up Sandra Glassey to make it 2-1. The three times IoMFA women's Player of the Year then got her name on the scoresheet with a weaving run to roll home and make it 3-1 and then netted their fourth, reacting after Gale fumbled Anna Quayle's swerving cross.
Dillon then completed her hat-trick when her strike was palmed into the net by Gale and she was involved in their sixth, the attacking midfielder chasing a lost cause and, with the Colby goalkeeper committed, laid it off for Tricia Fleming to exquisitely chip home. Charlotte Beards capitalised on a defensive lapse to reduce the arrears but Malew netted again as Rose Ozga, playing outfield, collected a dinked pass from Fleming to guide home their seventh. Nikki Cooil's deflected effort off Julie Gelling was a consolation for Colby.
A collection and a raffle afterwards raised £265.85 to Robert Owen House, Liverpool.
