Brentford Women were crowned Capital Cup champions following a 4-0 win over Leatherhead at Meadowbank Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

The Bees put on an excellent first-half showing with Chloe Logie striking twice and Maddie Phillips firing from long range to give the side a healthy lead at the break. A late second-half goal from substitute Lucy Bolitho wrapped up a perfect day for the Bees who claimed their first piece of silverware of the season.

Karleigh Osborne’s side were looking to bounce back in the best possible way following last weekend’s draw to Sport London E Benfica, which ended their promotion hopes.

The Bees got off to the perfect start, getting an early goal when Logie finished following an excellent run and assist from Nikki Woods.

Woods nearly doubled Brentford’s lead just two minutes after the opener but her shot was right at Lara Burrows.

It was all Brentford and the side made it 2-0 just 10 minutes in through an unbelievable strike from Phillips.

The right-back picked up the ball deep inside her own half before driving forward and unleashing a powerful shot from 25 yards which flew past Burrows.

Leatherhead grew into the game and had their first decent chance of the match just before the half-hour mark when Megan Button found space for a shot, but her effort was saved well by Evie Witek.

Logie added to her incredible goal tally for the season and put the Bees three goals ahead five minutes before the break.

A clearance from Phillips fell into the path of the forward who pushed the ball in front of her, allowing space for Logie to strike home.

Woods came agonisingly close to getting Brentford’s fourth of the match just after the hour when her strike from distance flashed inches over the bar.

Logie was on the hunt for her hat-trick and could have got it when an Ellen Wardlaw cutback pass found the no.9, but her shot was saved well by Burrows.

The introduction of Jodie Reid and Wardlaw proved to be positive as the pair added solidity to Brentford’s midfield, as well as Lucy Bolitho who sealed the win for Brentford with a neat left-footed finish.

Brentford Women head coach Karleigh Osborne was left feeling extremely proud of his team following their cup victory.

He said: “I’m over the moon, it was one of the trophies we wanted to go for and we achieved it by putting on a good performance.

“We have faced disappointment in the league, so it was about coming into the game and getting a reaction from the players and we certainly got that.”
