Dell double for Lionesses

Millwall Lionesses once again beat Stevenage Development to get back to winning ways.

Katie Whitmore’s side had not won since tasting victory over the Hertfordshire side on the opening day of the season six weeks before.

So a commanding win was just the tonic the Easter Region Women’s Football League side needed.

Shannon Drew opened the scoring early on with a deft chip.

A Sian Fitzpatrick clearance picked out striker Abbey Dell, who gave the hosts a 2-0 lead inside the first 10 minutes.

An own goal meant they went in 3-0 up at half-time.

Stevenage soon hit back but Kira Wealls set up Dell for the fourth (pictured).

Charlton Athletic Women U21s progressed to the next round of the Capital Cup, as an Angel Fowler wonder goal saw them beat Hounslow Women’s first team 1-0 on Tuesday.

The first team, sitting ninth in the FA Women’s Championship, play at London Bees on Sunday.

Eighth-placed Crystal Palace Ladies go to leaders Sheffield United on Sunday.
