Match Preview: The McDonald’s Norfolk
Women’s Cup Final!
This season’s Final of the McDonald’s
Norfolk Women’s Cup will be contested between King’s Lynn Town and Wymondham
Town on Sunday 28 April 2019 (3:30pm KO). This is the first Women’s Cup Final
to be held at the home of Norwich City, Carrow Road. Both teams compete in the Eastern
Regions Women’s Football League with Wymondham in the Premier Division and
Kings Lynn in Division One.
Last year the Final was held
at the FDC’s Field of Dreams and was a tight battle between Acle United and Wymondham
Town. Wymondham will be looking to defend their title as they won 3-2 in last
King’s Lynn Town currently
sit fifth in the League having won exactly 50% of their League games and can
move up the table if they win games in hand. As for their Cup run, they began
away to Sprowston and beat them comfortably 3-0. Wins against Tavern Ladies and
Sprowston Athletic 6-1 and 4-0 set up a Semi-Final tie away to Thorpe United.
Thorpe held King’s Lynn to a draw after 90 minutes but King’s Lynn scored twice
in extra-time to ensure they made the Final.
In the League, Wymondham
Town currently sit third after a good away win against Haringey Borough Women’s
last weekend. After receiving a bye in the First Round they travelled to
Bulldogs in the Second. The difference in Leagues really showed and meant that
Wymondham returned home with a 22-0 victory. Another away game in the
Quarter-Finals against Taverham saw them win 12-1. Their toughest game so far
in their Cup run was in the Semi-Finals against last year’s finalists, Acle
United. Ninety minutes and extra-time wasn’t enough to separate the two sides
but Wymondham came out on top in the penalty shoot-out.
