Our girls reached the final of the Gedling PSFA Cup for the first time in many, many years with a resounding semi-final victory on Friday.

Having qualified for the knock-out stages by virtue of winning or being runners-up in their league, teams then play one-off cup-ties. hence, all the teams left in are strong ones, making this a tough competition to win!

Our girls had already knocked out one of the favourites, with their dominant 6-2 win away at All Hallows.

A tough match was expected at home against Richard Bonington, but our team put on an awesome display of powerful, skilful football to romp to a 7-0 win, which frankly would have been many, many more but for a wonder-performance by the visitors’ goalkeeper.

It took ten minutes to break through and find a goal, but once we did, the floodgates opened. 3-0 at half-time and another 4 added in the second half.

Everyone played their part – this was a brilliant team performance, based on strong defence, busy and creative mdiefield and fantastic finishing up-front. Lottie had a very quiet time of it in goal, but kept her focus and concetnration for the few times she was called into action.

Next up for the girls then, the final  Рdate and venue to be confirmed, against Arno Vale.
