Five star evening for Charlton
 Women's Football News 16 May 2012
Charlton Athletic gave a performance worthy of the setting with a 5-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur at The Valley on Tuesday. 
The team were challenged by manager Paul Mortimer to showcase the female side of the club and did so in style throughout the 90 minutes, creating numerous scoring opportunities and restricting Spurs to a minimum of chances.

Charlton started positively, going close several times with a policy of shooting on sight of Spurs keeper Jo Ayre's goal. One such effort, from Kit Graham, brought the opener, driven low into the corner from 20 yards.

Ellie Stenning, played in on the left edge of the area by a flowing move, doubled the lead on the quarter hour. Jenny Newman finished well at the far post for the third as the hosts kept up a relentless stream of attacks and were quicker to every loose ball.

Spurs were forced to step up their game by Charlton's lively start and they managed to stem the flow during the last twenty minutes of the half and mount a few attacks of their own without ever getting a clear opportunity..

Skipper Kim Dixson, who had twice gone close from distance in the first half, again tested Ayre after the break. Gemma Bryan, who had threatened to score all evening, added the fourth, powering in a shot from a very tight angle just before the hour before setting up Jade Keogh for the fifth. .

Spurs kept looking for a consolation right to the end but were kept at bay by an efficient defensive showing that meant Charlton keeper Megen Lynch was well protected.

The crowd were treated to a five star showing on the pitch and to the facilities of the Millennium Suite before and after the match for an enjoyable and entertaining evening.
