A dominant performance from the Charlton women’s team saw them run out 6-0 winners against West Ham United at Rush Green on Wednesday evening.
A double from Charley Clifford and one each from Nicole Pepper, Kit Graham, Georgia Griffin and Emma Sherwood made it a comfortable night for the women’s team.

The victory, combined with Crystal Palace’s first loss of the season away to Lewes, means the Addicks extend their lead at the top of the FA Women’s Premier League (FAWPL) South to five points. It also meant they stay a perfect five out of five on the season.

Pepper, who joined late last season from FA Women’s Super League side Watford, made it the dream start, curling in from 20 yards out six minutes in after collecting a Charlotte Gurr free kick. It was her first goal in a Charlton shirt.

Four minutes later Clifford doubled the lead, poking past Cherie Rowlands and Graham, who had seen a few chances go awry in the early stages, made it three eight minutes before half time converting an Ellie Dorey cross.

The first quarter of an hour of the second half was a more even affair, though West Ham still struggled to threaten their opponents’ goal. And Clifford secured her brace on the hour mark, firing home from Gurr’s through ball.

The final two goals came courtesy of two substitutes; first 17-year-old Georgia Griffin netting her first goal in senior first team football within three minutes of replacing Graham. The former Southend youngsters clinically converted Hope Nash’s centre.

With just one minute of time remaining, Nash grabbed her second assist, feeding the ball in for Sherwood to score her first for Charlton as well.

The women’s team are back on home soil on Sunday as they host C&K Basildon at Sporting Club Thamesmead at 2pm.

Charlton: Startup, Brunton-Wilde, Sullivan, Flack, Dixson, Pepper (Monaghan 80), Nash, Dorey, Clifford (Sherwood 69), Gurr, Graham (Griffin 74). Subs (not used): Baker, Southgate.
