Share this


Swindon Town Football In The Community Under 18 Girls secured back to back wins in the Gothia Cup in Sweden after thrashing FC Lyn 7-0 this morning.

Karolayne Byrom gave Town an early lead when she scored the opener after just four minutes.

Megan Larkin then doubled Swindon Town’s lead, scoring on 22 minutes.

After half-time it was one-way traffic as the Town girls simply blew Norwegian side FC Lyn aside.

Byrom added her second on the half hour mark before Megan Attenborough scored a sensational hat-trick in just three minutes and 26 seconds.

Attenborough’s fine treble gave Swindon Town a 6-0 lead but there was still time for one final goal as Sarah Uzzell tapped in at the far post for a seventh.

The 7-0 drubbing ensured Swindon Town Girls now qualify for the knockout stages of the competition with one group game to spare.

On Wednesday they conclude their Gothia Cup Under 18’s Group 1 matches against Brazlian side BRFC.

Swindon Town will go into that match full of confidence, having notched nine goals in their opening two games.

Furthermore, the Brazlian side have yet to score a goal, losing against both FC Lyn and AIK FF.

More reaction to follow from this match later today.
