Charli crashes four past Burnham

Charli Crandon scores four goals as Weston Ladies smash nine past Burnham.

AN EARLY start did not stop Weston’s hunger for goals in this local derby.

Good early passing and possession saw Weston rarely out of the Burnham half for the first 20 minutes, with two goals from Taylor Kingscott and Charli Crandon.

Constant pressure paid dividends with a pass from Michelle Tuxford creating a third Weston goal, quickly followed by a near post deflection from Lucy Clarke which made it 4-0 at half-time.

The second half saw little change with Weston’s quick movement resulting in goals for Nikki Baker and Charli Crandon, with a well worked team goal converted by Crandon.
