Gray Scores Stunning Winner As Burgess Hill Women Defeat AFC Varndeanians Ladies
29th April 2018 By Peter Chapman
Burgess Hill FC Women's team recorded their first victory under new head coach Arron Conniff-Broome as they beat AFC Varndeanians Ladies 2-1 at the Withdean Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
The Hillians took the lead just before the interval through stiker Shannon McFadden. In the 65th minute a long range effort from AFC Varndeanians' Kinlock brought the scores level, but just two minutes later Jess Gray had a 'hold my beer' moment as she eclipsed Kinlock with a deadly strike from distance of her own to put the Hillians back in the lead.

The visitors were down to 10 players for the final ten minutes after sustaining a head injury to one of the team, but they held out to record a narrow victory, when in reality the score could and should have been so much more had the Hillians been wearing their shooting boots.
Here's the video highlights of the game filmed by BHU:
