Women's County Cup 2018


Coventry United Ladies And West Bromwich Albion LFC Go Head-To-Head For The 2019 Women's County Cup.

An exciting season in the Women’s County Cup comes to a close on Tuesday 30 April as Coventry United Ladies do battle with West Bromwich Albion LFC.

The Final itself is set to be played at the home of Tamworth FC, the Lamb Ground, and is due to get underway at 7.45pm.

The clash will be a familiar one to supporters, with the two clubs having come together in two out of the last three seasons, albeit with West Brom in their previous guise as Sporting Club Albion Ladies. The Baggies have been successful on both occasions, with both games having been decided on penalties. They now have the chance to win the Women’s County Cup for the third time in the last four seasons.

Despite that, Coventry come into the game with considerable pedigree of their own. Jay Brayford’s side have managed to reach the Final of the Women’s County Cup for the fourth season in a row this year. However, it took until the 2017/18 campaign for them to actually lift the trophy. They did it in emphatic style though as they dismissed of Birmingham & West Midlands Ladies in a record 15-0 win. They, then, head into this year’s instalment aiming to retain the Cup.

Coventry have also enjoyed an irrepressible run to this year’s Final. They kicked off the defence of their crown with a 5-1 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers Ladies before being awarded a walkover against Birmingham and West Midlands Ladies in Round Three. The Red and Greens turned on the style in the Quarter-Finals by thumping Leafield Athletic Ladies 8-0, before repeating that feat with another eight-goal haul against Stockingford AA Pavillion Ladies in the last-four to book their place in the Final.

Meanwhile, West Brom did not actually play any football until the third round having been given a bye and awarded a walkover against Solihull Ladies United in Round Two. They eventually got their first win as they scraped past Sutton Coldfield Town Ladies 1-0 away from home. The goals started to flow for Louis Sowe’s troops after that however as a 5-1 win over Sandwell Ladies, coupled with a 4-1 success against Redditch United Ladies, took them to the Final.

Both teams then meet in the Final having plundered plenty of goals throughout the competition, something that supporters will hope to see continue considering the cagey past meetings between the two in the Women’s County Cup Final.
