Croydon edge Milford & Witley in five-goal thriller – South London News


The largest home attendance of the season greeted Croydon Women as they took on Milford & Witley, knowing a draw would be enough to guarantee a top-three finish for the Trams.

The visitors took the early lead, heading a corner home at the back post.

With half an hour gone, the Trams equalised through Kacie Nadison Singh. Receiving the ball inside the Milford half, she had time to spot the Milford goalie was not in position and whacked the ball long and deep into the bottom left-hand corner.

Sarah Nicholson then put the Trams in front after she reacted quickest to tap home Megan Perkins’ rebounded effort.

Milford were awarded a penalty in the second half when a cross in the box hit Iffy Chileze’s arm, which was converted past the Trams keeper Angelina Hewitt Williams to level the scoreline.

Croydon eventually settled the game when Nic D’Aranjo rose highest inside the area to head home Siane Frances Duncan’s cross.

The ref blew the final whistle and the Trams secured a top-three place in the league.
