World record for Keynsham?
 Women's Football News 1 Nov 2010
 
World record for Keynsham? - 1 Nov 2010 - Women's Football NewsKeynsham Town Reserves are claiming a World Record after they recorded a 41-0 victory over an unfortunate Somerton & Langport side in their Somerset County League Division Two match.
 
This scoreline may be a World Record on two counts. First, the world record in the Guinness Book of Records is shown as being the 36-0 win by Arbroath against Bon Accord in the Scottish Cup on 12 September 1885. There was a scare for the world record holders when Romanian side Carpati Mirsa put the record under threat when they recently defeated Avintul Dirlos 41-0. The Guinness Book of Records, however, ruled that the Romanian score did not overturn the Arbroath record, as it was not a professional game.
 
Where does that leave Keynsham score? Well, it certainly matched the Romanian effort exactly and while it does not overturn the Arbroath record for the same reason, it could qualify as a world record itself on two counts - first as a record score in Britain and secondly as a world record score for a women's league match.
 
This is the first season for the young Keynsham Town Reserve side, who last year were playing at Under-16 level and won the Somerset County Under-16 Cup. Managed by Graham Rogers, the team have now played five senior games - winning every one to date, scoring 84 goals and conceding none. Ironically Sunday's game saw the team missing top scorer Yasmin Laver, but that did not hold them back as goals rained in from Chloe Rogers (11 goals), Amy Davidson (8), Becky Dando (6), Hannah Pearce (6), Kate Collyns (4), Sarah Bartlett, Keirra Minall, Sophie Freeman and two own goals. Then when Keynsham were awarded a penalty, they called up goalkeeper Caroline Oyedepo to take the spot kick. Somerton's 'keeper saved the kick, but Caroline put in the rebound to make it 41 goals in total.
 
Club secretary, Pamela Newton said: "It was quite an extraordinary result and we will contact the Guinness Book of Records to see if it qualifies for a mention. We expect this young side to be promoted in their first season and would like to applaud Somerton & Langport for their sportsmanship."
 
Do you know of a bigger victory than Keynsham's? The result has to occur in a competitive fixture. If so, please let us know!
