Ladies face Long Eaton in cup final tomorrow

20 May 2016

Mansfield Town Ladies will be hoping to be crowned East Midlands’ Women’s Football League Cup champions when they face Long Eaton United on Sunday (2pm kick-off).

After an emphatic run to the final of the competition in which they’ve netted 22 goals in their four matches, the Stagettes will be aiming to end their 2015-16 campaign on a high after missing out on the league title.

In the first round, a clinical Mansfield side ran out 10-0 victors over Sleaford Town, before thrashing Arnold Town 5-1 in the next stage of the competition.

In the quarter-final they came up against Moulton LFC, who they convincingly beat 3-0 and in the semi-final they edged past Bedworth United in a 4-3 thriller after extra-time, with Jemma Douglas being named Player of the Match on that occasion.

Heading into the contest, Lewis Saxby’s team will be looking to bounce back following a frustrating end to their league season, with a 6-1 defeat to Nettleham Ladies.

With Long Eaton United finishing 13 points above the Stagettes in the division, it will be a tough task for Saxby’s side to triumph in the final. The last meeting between the two sides ended with a 2-1 win for Long Easton with Marie Wayne bagging for the Stagettes.

The sides also faced each other in October 2015, which was a superb 3-3 draw with Jemma Douglas, Jess Machin and the aforementioned Wayne scoring in that game.

The address for the match is as follows:
Oxton Road, 
Arnold,
Nottingham, 
Nottinghamshire
NG5 8PS
