Treble dreams for Women’s Football Academy
Our Women’s Football Academy first team are dreaming of the treble this season.
After securing the Association of College’s (AOC’s) League Title back in January, the team are also hoping for double cup glory in both the AOC's Women’s Premier Cup and ECFA Playoff Final.
The team travelled the length and breadth of the country, heading to Somerset for their ECFA playoff semi-final against Bridgewater and Taunton College last month. The journey was worth it though as they secured a 5-2 victory with goals from Eve Blakey (2) Rebecca Ferguson (2) and Abby Towers. They’ll now play either Hartbury College or Sudbury College in the final on 4th May at the Etihad Community Stadium.
Double cup glory could also come with the team playing in the AOC’s Premier Cup taking on South Gloucestershire and Stroud College at Doncaster’s KeepMoat Stadium on 28th April.
Women’s Football Academy Head Coach Melanie Reay said: “I’m really proud of the team; they’ve already had a fantastic season winning the League Title and now they got not one but two cup finals to look forward to. They are a really dedicated group of girls who work extremely hard both on and off the pitch and the result of all their hard work is paying off.”
