F.A.Women's Cup - Road to the Final
Mossley Hill continued their excellent Cup run with another 3-2 victory in the last round, this time ending the hopes of Luton Town. Hannah Lundberg, Sophie Perry and an own goal ensured that the Merseyside club reached the Fourth Round for the first time and they will face another South East Combination club in Enfield Town.
Enfield Town LFC was established in 1986 and these days operate four youth teams and three senior teams. Their best moment came in 2002 when they won the South East Combination title and promotion to the Premier League, where they stayed for three years. Last season they finished as runners-up in the Combination and are one of the main title challengers this time around. This is the furthest the club has ever progressed in the competition.
The club is Community based and aspires to offer competitive football to as many girls and women as possible. The club does not run trials but has 'open' training sessions where anyone is invited to attend and see if they enjoy it before they sign up as a member. All Club officials are voluntary and many have dual roles in order for the club to survive.
The first team is managed by John Abbott, with Chris and Clive Wilson as coaches, and is a mixture of youth and experience. Stalwart defender Claire Gooch captains the side which has many players with Premier League experience, including the likes of goalkeeper Joanne Ayre, Kerrie Marlborough, Miranda Hall, Beth Demery and Katie Wilding amongst others, while Sara Sinclair is a prolific scorer at Combination level. Many of the players have been a part of the club for five or more seasons and some have progressed all the way through the youth section.
The match at Brimsdown Social & Sports Club should see Enfield start as favourites but Mossley Hill have upset the odds consistently this season and should not be ruled out.
