Crawley Wasps reserves passed a huge test with flying colours on Sunday as they beat Saltdean United 5-1 to make it three wins from three in the South East Counties Premier Division.
Although newly promoted, Saltdean are anticipated to be among the leading sides in the division but Simon Pavey’s team proved too strong.
They went in front in the 18th minute with Amy Woollard showing good strength before crossing for Rosanne Fine to volley home.
Lauren Callaghan then scored from an acute angle following Natalie Stephenson’s pass to give Wasps a 2-0 half-time lead.
Saltdean pulled a goal back shortly after the break when Summer Dutton got on to the end of a free-kick, but Stephenson restored the two-goal advantage when her set-piece crept in at the near post.
Woollard and Fine both netted from close range to set the seal on an impressive win.
Wasps reserves: Hillman; Richards, Bolton, Rippin, Ward; Woollard, Natalie Stephenson, T. Smith, Callaghan; Martin; Fine. Subs: Svaikevic, Dunn, N. Smith.
