Scout Waddington opened the scoring with a fierce left-foot shot into the bottom corner, before Giuseppina Carnevale teed up Chloe O’Donoghue for the second.

Waddington and O’Donoghue then combined, before releasing Apollonia Margetson to grab the third for Brent, while Waddington added the fourth before half-time.

Coach Chris Ampofo said: “The team spirit in the group is brilliant. They all get on and work hard for each other. Raya would have enjoyed today.

“We all hope that she gets over this knock quickly and feels better soon”.

Brent: O’Donoghue, Carnevale, Dibley-Dias, Rosenberg, Waddington, Margetson, Kew, Lewis, Mir, Santos-Ferreira.
