AFC Bournemouth AFC Bournemouth

AFC Bournemouth treated a record crowd for a women’s game at Vitality Stadium to a resounding 4-0 win against Portishead Town on Sunday.

The official attendance of 6,805 more than doubled the previous best of 3,067 for the visit of Maidenhead United last season.

Steve Cuss’s team registered a ninth successive league victory to maintain their 100 per cent winning start in Division One South West.

Lifelong Cherries supporter Maisy Smith started the ball rolling when she helped settle any nerves in the hosts’ camp by opening the scoring in the 12th minute.

Gemma McGuinness doubled the Cherries’ lead with an unstoppable volley from a cross by Alisha Buckingham midway through the first half, the winger’s 12th goal of the season.

Defender Helen Bleazard made it nine goals for the season in the 83rd minute before substitute Chloe Gilroy completed the scoring late on.
