Cup weekend

The FA Women’s Premier League Cup and Plate competitions both reach the quarter-final stage this Sunday, plus there is the added bonus of the one remaining SSE Women’s FA Cup first round tie to be decided this weekend too.


Of the eight teams left in the competition, half are from the Southern Division, and with Tottenham Hotspur playing Crystal Palace the division is guaranteed at least one representative in the semi-finals.

The other match-ups see Charlton Athletic face West Bromwich Albion in a South v North battle, and the two remaining Northern Division One sides both playing at home: Chester-le-Street against Blackburn Rovers of the Northern Division and Liverpool Marshall Feds versus Cardiff City of the Southern Division.

WPL Plate

Also at the final eight stage this weekend, the WPL Plate draw sees five Division One sides still in with a shout of taking the silverware. With every regional division of the WPL still having at least one representative in the competition, they represent quite a diverse group of teams.

Leicester City Women will be travelling to North East Somerset to take on last season’s losing Plate semi-finalists Keynsham Town, while Actonians will host Radcliffe Olympic, Luton Town will play Lewes, and Huddersfield Town visit Tranmere Rovers.

The final remaining first round FA Cup tie should be decided on Sunday as well, with Southampton and Swindon Town playing for the chance to visit Cambridge United in the second round.
