Chairgirls hit eight past New Milton Town.

14 January 2019

Wycombe Wanderers Ladies reached the semi-final of the League Cup with a magnificent 8-2 victory over Premier Division side New Milton Town on Sunday.

Tara Woodward smashed five goals to take her personal tally to 30 in just 13 matches this season, while Chante Inniss grabbed a hat-trick.

They've been handed a home draw against Premier Division leaders Southampton - managed by former England star Marieanne Spacey - to be played on Sunday 24th February.

Next up they face Eastleigh in a First Southern Division clash at Spring Lane, Flackwell Heath, on Sunday 20th January, kicking off at 2pm.

Meanwhile the U18s XI picked up another victory, overcoming Caversham Swans 5-2; here's the report...

Caversham Swans 2-5 Wycombe Wanderers U18 XI
Wycombe approached the game with cautious optimism, following the home result in the corresponding fixture in the autumn where Wycombe had won 2-0. They knew that Caversham held an attacking threat and were a physically strong team. They also have the top scorer in the league in their forward line.

Wycombe dominated possession through-out, albeit at times play was a little scrappy. The visitors played enough good football to carve out some good opportunities to score. Two goals by Woods saw the visitors get to half time 2-1 ahead, the first of which came from a strong shot by Winfield from the edge of the box, which rebounded off the inside of the post, and Woods was on hand to side foot calmly past the keeper. Caversham’s goal, which had made it 1-1, came from a swift counter attack.

The second half saw Wycombe press forward, but with Caversham looking dangerous on the break from the few opportunities they were getting. Wycombe scored a further three goals in the second half, all scored by Chloe Ball, who again led the line impressively. Her final goal where she scored from outside the box, following ‘rolling’ the defender, was excellent. Caversham scored their second in response, following some sloppy defending.

Wycombe came away deserved winners, having played some good football at times, again, on a far from perfect surface.
