Huddersfield Town Ladies v Sheffield Wednesday Ladies
Storthes Hall Student Village,
Storthes Hall Lane,
Kick Off: 2.00pm Admission: £3.00 includes programme and raffle.
This Sunday our 1st team travel to Shelley FC to face Huddersfield Town in the semi final of this years County Cup.
Huddersfield were last years losing finalists being beat eventually by Barnsley FC. They currently play their league football in the FA Women's Premier League - North, which is 3 divisions higher than our ladies and only one level behind the Women's Super League. They will go into the game as not only favourites to win but also favourites to win the whole competition.
On route to the semi they beat Dronfield FC 16-0 in the 3rd round entering at that stage due to being the highest seeded team in the competition. They then exceeded that with a 21-0 victory over Rovers Foundation in the quarter final.
Our Ladies entered at the first round stage and reached the semi by way of victories over Hepworth (8-0) Worksop Town (6-0) Huddersfield Town Reserves (4-0) and finally Harworth Ladies (7-2) in the quarter final. Although massive under dogs the team are having a great season and currently sit in 2nd spot in the NERWFL Southern division, They reached the FA Cup first round proper beating higher league teams and also still have a league cup quarter final to play.
Manager Dave Higgins comments: We are on a good run so far this season but this game will be without doubt our biggest test of the season. We only just have a full team available for the game and cannot call upon our Reserve or Development players has they have already been a part of the competition in the earlier rounds. The players have been super this season but will have to be at their best to compete with a very good, experienced Huddersfield team. As long as they enoy their day, give it their best then I will be happy whatever the result and with the magic of the cup who knows.....
