Ladies lift League Cup

Filed: Thursday, 5th April 2018

West Ham Ladies are the Bostik Isthmian League Cup champions after recovering from an early setback to beat Charlton Athletic on Wednesday evening.

And the Ladies' heroes on the night were Andria Georgiou and Molly Clark, who grabbed the winning goal - from a free kick 20 minutes from time - to secure their first trophy of the season.

Played at Aveley Town's new Parkside stadium, the Addicks drew first blood after just four minutes when Kit Graham opened the scoring.

But an equaliser from Georgiou deep into first half injury time ensured the Hammers went into the break on level terms - before Clark secured the trophy for the Hammers with a stunning set-piece with just 20 minutes of time to play.

"We're absolutely buzzing!" goalscorer Georgiou told whufc.com after the match and ensuing celebrations had died down. "The graft put in by all the girls has been second to none and everyone has just been pulling in the same direction for this result. We're just all so proud.

"It's always amazing to score in a final, but to get a goal like that, it's just wow! To net from distance, underside of the bar, I don't even score goals like that in training, so to do it on this occasion will live with me forever."
