Forest Green Rovers v Hereford FC Girls U18 : 3pm kick-off
Gloucestershire FA, Oaklands Park, Almondsbury, Gloucestershire, BS32 4AG
Sunday 7th May 2017 sees the top two teams in the league come head-to-head in the Cup Final at the Gloucestershire FA in Almondsbury.
The semi-final draw was played at Central Park last month, where Hutton FC were the visitors. It proved to be a tough test ending 0-0, with Hereford winning 5-4 on penalties.
Forest Green Rovers pipped Hereford to the league title toward the end of the season in a 4-0 win. The score line would suggest it was comfortable for Rovers but the girls pushed their opposition to the limit and on another day the outcome could’ve been different.
There’s no better time to play the champions as preparations for the final have been positive, the team won their last two league games against Dursley and Lads Club.
No matter the outcome on Sunday, the squad has exceeded expectations and all have ultimately raised the profile of female football in Herefordshire. The support and backing they’ve received has been tremendous, UITC thanks everyone for this and hopes it will continue in the future.
ALL support is welcome on Sunday, it would be great to see as many people as possible to support the girls and the female game, in what will be a fantastic occasion!
