Archant Women’s Cup final: West Ham United 2 Charlton Athletic 1

West Ham United battled back from conceding an early goal to beat Charlton Athletic 2-1 and win the Women’s Cup final.

The Addicks took the lead in just the fourth minute when Kit Graham put the south Londoners ahead.

However, Andria Georgiou drew the Hammers level just before the break to leave the final perfectly poised at half time.

With 20 minutes remaining in the game, a sublime free kick from West Ham’s Molly Clark found the net to put the east Londoners ahead.

The Hammers held on to triumph and take home to Women’s Cup, which Georgiou believes is just reward for the team’s efforts.

“We’re absolutely buzzing. We’ve been working so hard in training and we absolutely deserve this win,” Georgiou told the club website.

“The graft put in by all the girls has been second to none and everyone has just been pulling in the same direction for this result. We’re just all so proud.

“I could feel it coming to be honest. It’s just amazing. We knew what Charlton could do and they hit us early.

“We were so desperate to score before half-time but, even though we did, we knew our first half performance wasn’t good enough.

“We came out in the second half absolutely raring to go and I really think we dominated from the 46th minute onwards.

“We completely deserve it given how well we’ve played tonight. So many of the girls played so well tonight.

“The atmosphere is amazing, the confidence is sky high, and we all play football for nights like this.”
