A 6-0 victory over Radcliffe Olympic team saw Nottingham Forest retain the Nottinghamshire County Cup for the third year in succession.
Played at Carlton Town on a blistering hot day, the game started off well for Radcliffe setting their stall out early to frustrate Forest but with a little over 15 minutes on the clock, Forest made their breakthrough with a goal from Natalie Clarke. Radcliffe had their best chance shortly after when Claire Weeks hit the bar, before Forest found the net twice more before half time to make it a 3-0 scoreline, goals coming from Reanne Thomas and Kirsty Robson.
After the break, Forest closed out the game with three more strikes from Andi Bell, Cat Stainthorpe and Catherine Lawson to retain the County Cup for the third year in a row.
Forest manager Lisa Dawkins said: "The County Cup is the flagship cup for the County of Nottingham and we are delighted to have retained the silverware. Although the scoreline may look favourable to Forest, Radcliffe were resilient, especially their defence."
Radcliffe manager Rob Wilson added: "I said to the girls after the game, to forget this one and not to dwell on a defeat. We knew playing Forest would be a difficult task, and with two divisions between the teams that was how it turned out, and their superior fitness certainly showed on a boiling hot day.
"We've achieved a lot this season and would probably be the only team in the county that could keep Forest to single figures. But that's it - season over and I'm happy and proud of everything we've achieved and I'd like to thank all those that have been involved and look forward to the exciting challenge ahead."
