Five-star performance from Women

AFC Bournemouth AFC Bournemouth


The report from the latest AFC Bournemouth Women's game.

Doubles from Meg Vella and Chloe Tape put the Cherries in a fine position, while recent signing Rebecca Miles also got on the scoresheet to cap off a fine afternoon.

The hosts started strongly, with Vella striking the bar from a free-kick early on, having beaten the ‘keeper.

Shortly after, a flurry of Cherries corners couldn’t be converted, while Ascot had a couple of chances themselves.

However, the deadlock was broken on 29 minutes with some good work from Miles on the right. The winger slipped the ball through to Tape, who pulled it back on the by-line for Vella to open the scoring.

Just five minutes later and the Cherries had a second, this time Miles netting after getting on the end of a corner.  

With half time imminent, a third soon came, this time Vella setting up Tape for her first of the afternoon.

Following the break, AFC Bournemouth continued where they left off and had scored inside ten minutes of the restart, Tape with her second and the side’s fourth.

Ascot, however, did pull one back through a free-kick, Annie Ackroyd with a fine effort to reduce the deficit.

Nevertheless, a fifth for the hosts soon came, as Vella beat her full-back and slotting the ball home at the back post.

Following the game, manager Steve Davies shared his thoughts with afcb.co.uk.

“The team have been working really hard, in particular since Christmas,” he began.

“The win sets us up really well for our game on the weekend.”

The victory sees AFC Bournemouth remain three points clear at the top of the league, with a big game against second place Southampton coming up at Potterne Park this weekend.

Entry is free for the 2pm kick-off on Sunday.
