Three of the Best!

A comfortable victory for the Dons

13 October 2022

Our Women continued their fine start to the season with a solid 3-0 win over London Seaward on Wednesday night – which included a stunning 40-yard goal from Ashlee Hincks.

The striker was amongst the scorers yet again as she fired in an astonishing effort with her “weaker” foot from miles out, before following it up with a second in the latter stages.

Billie Brooks was also on the scoresheet as she netted her first Wimbledon goal as Faye Baker kept her fourth clean sheet of the season at the other end. The game also saw Megan Stow’s return from injury as she came off the bench for her first appearance of the season.

Coming into the game against a London Seaward side that had showed promise in the early stages of the season, the Dons knew we would have to be on our game from the off. And it was certainly a match which started in an exciting fashion with both teams having chances inside the opening minutes.

However as the half went on our side began to show their dominance and played some beautiful stuff. It was Brooks who got our first of the evening as she got on the end of a cross from Hincks to head home. Then came the moment of the match from Hincks who scored an early contender for goal of the season as she smashed one in from distance with her left foot to double our lead prior to the break.

The first chance of the second-half fell to the visitors who forced Baker into an outstanding save to tip a shot onto the bar. Almost immediately after this we went down the other end and it was Hincks who got on the end of a Becki Bath cross to get her second of the game and her 11th of the season. This was enough to put the game to bed against a spirited opposition as we emerged victorious.

Speaking after the game, Ellie Dorey said:

“We all thought it was a really good game. We came out with a lot of energy and kept it up all game and we played some really good football.”

Manager Kevin Foster added:

“The first-half was probably the best I’ve seen since I have been at the club. We moved the ball quickly, we won the ball in transition, we created chances, we created opportunities, We were patient when we needed to be and that was a complete performance.”

AFC Wimbledon: 1 Faye Baker, 2 Rosie Russell, 3 Billie Brooks, 5 Kelly Highman, 20 Hannah Billingham, 4 Steph Mann (28 Emily Oliver), 16 Emily Donovan, 17 Becki Bath (12 Megan Stow), 21 Mia Lockett (10 Chloe Sampson), 9 Ashlee Hincks, 22 Ellie Dorey (19 Remmi Gardner)
