The scoreline says it all in a sense. Angels Ladies were demolished by Charlton Athletic with the home side rattling in 22 goals without reply. However it’s important to put this result in perspective. Charlton play their football five levels above the Angels and also chose to respect their visitors by playing their full first team for the first 45 minutes. By the interval Charlton were ahead by 14 goals but it was noticeable how the scoring rate reduced in the second period as the Angels were on the ball to a much greater extent and were even able to mount some attacks of their own.
Despite being under severe pressure for most of the game, to their credit the heads never dropped and it was evident that the girls enjoyed the experience of playing against a team with the skills and technique that Charlton were able to show. The match was in many ways a prelude to the vital League game against Long Lane Development this coming Sunday (22nd October) at Tonbridge Farm KO 2 00pm. Long Lane are one place above the Angels in 1st place but only on goal difference so quite a match in prospect. The Ladies would be very grateful for your support.
