Ashford Ladies finish on top

GLWFL Premier Division Result.....
Ashford Town (Middlesex) Ladies came from behind to win 4-1 and maintain their unbeaten league season.
Ashley Cheatley continued her fine form in front of goal to help The Tangerines with another hatrick in as many games.
The first half was difficult for both sides as the wind and rain proved a challenge.
Colne Valley continued to put pressure on in the second half and ten minutes into the half Nikki Saunders found space in the box and slotted the ball round Gracie Perkis (50), who was making her league debut for Ashford Ladies.
The away side found an equaliser 10 minutes after and it was Alissa Down who popped up in the box to fire in Holly Isaacs cross (66).
Down then turned provider by whipping in a corner for Cheatley to tap in (70) as she arrived at the far post to give Ashford the lead for the first time in the game.
Cheatley extended the lead with a well taken strike (78) just before she recorded her pick of the goals straight after finishing into the far corner (86), out of reach for Jemma Moss.
The win sees Ashford Town (Middlesex) Ladies lead the Greater London Women’s Football League Premier Division for 2018.
