Durham City v Team Northumbria
 Women's Football News 1 Sep 2007
Durham City v Team Northumbria - 1 Sep 2007F.A.Women's Cup - Road to the Final
Our northern Cup tie was actually the very first drawn out of the hat, with Durham City taking on Team Northumbria in a clash between two North East League sides.
Durham City LFC is in its sixth year of existence and comprises of women with experience of playing for teams in the Northern League, and there are players of all abilities!
In their maiden season, Durham City were promoted to the Northern League First Division after finishing runners-up in the Second Division. The team topped off a great first campaign by winning the Second Division Cup, beating Newton Aycliffe in the Final. The following season, Durham City competed well in the First Division, finishing an encouraging 7th out of ten teams. Again in their third season Durham competed well, but unfortunately finished 8th.
The 2005-06 season went extremely well, although they had a downfall at one point where they were sitting second from bottom and with six games in hand because of weather problems. Once those six matches were played, Durham were back on their feet and sitting fourth by the end of our season! Gemma Charlton, then the coach/manager, was very pleased with overall performances.
Last season was one of change with a new manager and coach in Richie Curry and, also with new backroom staff and a new captain, the team has been transformed. Durham pulled off some surprise results and team performances were much improved as they ended the season in fourth place.
Last week, Durham City were beaten in their opening match by hot favourites Whitley Bay but optimism is high that they can further improve on the past two seasons. Richard Curry is in his second season in charge and Emma Hancox is club captain, whilst Gemma Charlton now undertakes the Secretary's role.
Team Northumbria play in the Premier Division of the North East League and were formed from former members of Northumbria University and Newcastle Development.
The club started life in the Northern League and remained as members until the formation of the North East League last season and they were founder members of the Premier Division. Although they finished at the foot of the table, they retained their status and their opening match of the new season ended in a narrow 3-2 defeat against Morley Spurs.
The team is managed by Leanne Bramley and Martin Stonehouse is Club Secretary.
The match takes place at Archibald Stadium, Ferens Park in Durham with a 2pm kick off. Team Northumbria are likely to start the match as narrow favourites but, despite their higher division status, a very close match is in anticipation. Gateshead Cleveland Hall await the winners in the First Qualifying Round.
