Charlotte Gurr netted four times as the Women`s team completed an emphatic league double over bottom of the table Swindon at Fairford Town on Sunday
On a heavy pitch that the Fairford Town groundsman did wonders to get the game on, the Addicks played some excellent football.
With keeper Katie Startup back from England U19 duty, Head coach Riteesh Mishra also restored Sam Pittuck, Charley Clifford and Charlotte Lee to the starting eleven and gave new signing Olivia Lukasewich her debut.
It took the Addicks just two minutes to open the scoring as skipper Kim Dixson threaded a ball through to Charlotte Gurr who calmly slotted past the keeper.
On 9 minutes Charley Clifford doubled Charlton`s lead with a thunderous 35 yard strike that gave the keeper no chance.
Ten minutes later Gurr claimed her second from close range after good work from Kit Graham.
Two minutes before the break it was four as a powerful Kit Graham cross was turned past her own keeper by a Swindon defender.
The second half started with Nicole Pepper seeing her 20 yard effort dip narrowly over the crossbar before Kit Graham pulled a low strike from the edge of the area just wide of the far post.
On the hour Graham was brought down in the area and Gurr stepped up to fire home from the spot to complete her hat-trick.
A rare Swindon attack saw their striker foiled by Katie Startup who made an excellent save.
Meanwhile at the other end Swindon keeper Sophie Barrett made another fine save tipping a powerful Graham drive round the post.
On 79 minutes Olivia Lukasewich marked her debut with a goal, cutting in from the wing to fire home.
Four minutes later young striker Georgia Griffin got her name on the score sheet after latching onto a Graham through ball and finishing low past the keeper.
Two more late goals took the Addicks tally to nine. Firstly on 90 minutes Gurr dribbled through the heart of the home defence to fire home her fourth before Kit Graham headed home a Charley Clifford cross in injury time.
