Swindon Town Women 4-0 Maidenhead United Women

A fantastic performance saw Town come away with all three points

12 October 2023

A breathtaking performance from Town saw them run out 4-0 winners on a rainy evening at Melksham's Oakfield Stadium against Maidenhead United on Wednesday.

A first-half effort from captain Georgia Clifford opened the scoring before two goals from Ellie Strippel and a brilliant fourth from Annie Colston rounded off a spectacular performance.
It was another bright start and another early goal for Swindon, with skipper Clifford climbing highest to a brilliant Strippel corner from the left-hand side and finding the back of the net with a bullet header after just two minutes.
The game continued at an even tempo after the goal, but Town doubled their lead in the 22nd minute when Meg Jarvis used her pace down the wing to put a cross to the edge of the box which saw Strippel with space to get her first of the evening.
Town would only have to wait three more minutes until the next goal, with Strippel again on the scoresheet who got past the visitors’ keeper to find the bottom of the net.

Town seemed to have the majority of possession, with forward Strippel looking for a hat-trick. Still, unfortunately, her shot from range went straight over the tip of the crossbar and left Swindon confident of their performance going into the break.
Half-time: Swindon 3 Maidenhead 0
It was a quiet start to the second half, with not many chances on either side but Maidenhead started to cause problems 20 minutes in, however, thankfully Grace Purnell made a strong block to keep the score the same.
Swindon had a perfect opportunity to put the game to bed with a spectacular strike inside the box from top goal scorer Colston but the ball went slightly wide just minutes later.
But it wasn’t long until Colston finally got the fourth of the game just 15 minutes left on the clock, as the striker ran around the outside of the box using her pace until she took the shot from range that fell over the keeper and into the back of the net comfortably.
Following this, Swindon saw out the remainder of the game with a four-goal advantage, a clean sheet and a four-game unbeaten run in the FA WNL Division One West.
Swindon now looks to continue in this confident form as they ahead to their next fixture in the league as they look to host league leaders Bournemouth on Sunday and hope to continue their impressive start to the 23/24 season.
