Ashford Ladies Progress in Capital Women's Cup

By William Boye

Ashford Ladies hosted Sutton United Ladies on Sunday - read how it all unfolded here.....

For a record fifth time this season, Ashford Town (Middlesex) Ladies went into double figures to beat their opponents, this time to progress to the next round of the Capital Women's Cup.

A hatrick from Dana Johnson and Ashley Cheatley, a brace from Rebecca French and one a piece for Sofia Carpenter, Lavana Nefuville and Holly Isaacs, claimed a convincing victory for The Tangerines.

Ashford Ladies started well, and Cheatley was the one who looked most likely to benefit from the home sides early dominance when she found space in behind the Sutton defence but just couldn't find a finish.

In typical Ahford fashion, moments later, made amends when a clever cross from Isaacs found its way to the in-form French who made no mistake with her finish (15).

Ashford's pace in behind continued to cause Sutton United problems and seven minutes later were celebrating again. Carpenter played through French whose cross allowed Isaacs to pass the ball into the open net (22).

The away side didn't create too many opportunities in the first half with Sophie Burgess on hand to sniff out any goal-scoring opportunities.

French had her hand in another goal, delivering in another perfectly weighted cross that Cheatley this time finished, which her performance was deserving of (31).

Cheatley doubled her tally for the game (37) after the move of the game which saw Burgess begin the attack, The Tangerines played through the thirds of the pitch and finished off a well worked move by Cheatley. The striker currently leading the tally for most goals powerfully struck the ball into the bottom left corner of the net, giving the goalkeeper no chance.

H/T: 4-0

Johnson, Neufville and Nadia Peters were all introduced after the interval and the forwards were not shy in making an immediate impact. Johnson went close after five minutes and shortly after found the back of the net meeting Neufville’s well timed through-pass (49).

Sutton grabbed a goal of their own, after a free-kick was awarded deep in the Ashford half.

Carpenter, who has made a fantastic start to her Ashford career, scored for the second successive week (55) before French took her tally to five goals in her last four outings (62).

Sutton adopted a high defensive line, which allowed The Tangerines a lot of space in behind. Johnson took full advantage with her pace leaving the away sides defence behind and wrapping up her hatrick after rounding the goalkeeper and finishing (75).

Neufville scored a goal of her own after driving in from the left hand side of the pitch and smartly finishing by curling the ball round the goalkeeper. A brilliant solo goal deserving of her second half performance (79).

Cheatley wasn't done there and wrapped up her third and Ashford's final goal on Alissa Down found the in-form striker, once again (84).

F/T: 11-1

This win sees Ashford make the early trip to North London to face Tottenham Hotspur Development, the date is TBC.
