Hincks back with a bang to lead the victory charge

Our women hit the goal trail once again

31 March 2022

Ashlee Hincks marked her first start back after injury with a second-half double to help our women’s first-team to an important victory.

The brace from Hincks made it a highly impressive 37 goals from 28 games this season, as Kevin Foster’s side secured a 2-0 win versus Actonians LFC at the Cherry Red Records Stadium.

The victory extended Wimbledon’s unbeaten run to seven months and got the Dons back to winning ways after two successive 0-0 draws.

In the first-half Wimbledon carried attacking intent though great link-up play from the front three of Ashlee Hincks, Chloe Sampson, and Katie Stanley, but the breakthrough proved elusive and Hannah Billingham and Faye Baker were required at the other end to stop Actonians.

The opening goal was certainly worth waiting for in the second-half when Hincks fired home superbly from a 25-yard free-kick. And there was more to come from Hincks as she scored from close range to seal victory.

Manager Kevin Foster said: “Actonians are always a good side. They always make it difficult and that was the case again, so credit to them, but I thought it was a very good professional performance. We stayed with it, dug it out, and played some good football at times.”

El Sueno Tequila Player of the match Steph Mann said: “We always knew it was going to be a physical game, it always is against Actonians, but we came in with a game plan and we executed it perfectly.”

Next up for the Dons is a trip to Cambridge United on Sunday (2.00 pm kick-off at St Neots Town) and Wimbledon are back at the Cherry Red Records Stadium on 10 April versus Harlow Town (2.00 pm kick-off).

AFC Wimbledon: Faye Baker, Rosie Russell, Kelly Highman, Rebecca Sargent (Emily Donovan), Hannah Billngham, Steph Mann, Amy Taylor, Chloe Sampson (Gloria Siber), Ashlee Hincks, Megan Stow, Katie Stanley (Rebecca Carter).
