The Addicks picked up their first silverware of the season beating Millwall 2-0 in the Lewisham Festival Fusion Women's Cup at Blackheath on Saturday

On a hard bumpy surface both teams took time to settle but Charlton soon began to control the game.

The Addicks took the lead after 15 minutes when a Gemma Shpherd shot was blocked by a defender and Charley Clifford picked up the rebound on the edge of the after to fire low into the bottom corner of the goal with the Lionesses keeper managing to get her fingertips to the ball but not prevent it crossing the line.

A great run by Liz Ejupi saw the Albanian International send a 20 yard shot dipping over the Millwall crossbar.

Jenny Newman then picked out Ellie Stenning whose effort flew over the target.

Millwall then won a free-kick which Addicks keeper Kelly Cooper confidently claimed from under her crossbar.

First minutes into the second half the Addicks extended their lead when Gemme Shepherd controlled the throw-in from Stef Simmons and clipped a superb shot from the corner of the area into the top corner of the goal.

Good play between Shepherd and Stenning then set up Ejupi who again fired over.

Shepherd then fed the ball through to Stenning who won a corner. Simmons flag kick was met at the far post by Shepherd who saw her effort cross off the upright.

Jade Keogh then picked out Charley Clifford who sent her shot narrowely over the bar.

A number of former Addicks were playing for the Lionesses and one of them, Abi Igbavboa missed a golden chance to pull a goal back heading well wide from Emma Whitters cross with only keeper Cooper to beat.

Another dangerous run from Shepherd saw her thread the ball through to Stenning who shot tamely at the keeper.

The final action of the game saw Jade Keogh send a powerful long range driving fizzling narrowly wide of the upright.

Charlton Squad: Cooper, Alden, Chandler, K. Sheppard, Gibson, Simmons, Clifford, Ejupi, Shepherd, Newman, Stenning, Boyer, Gibbons, Graham, Keogh.
