HARRIERS won the Worcestershire FA Women’s Cup on Sunday with a comfortable 3-1 win over Cookley Sports.
Top scorer Alex Nicklin’s strike and a brace from Amie Savva put the reds in firm control before Sports netted a late consolation.
It wraps up a solid second season for Harriers since the reformation of the Ladies side – after winning the League and Cup double last term, they’ve followed up with a solid season in a new league and a semi-final appearance in the League Cup to go alongside this County Cup success.
The tie was played at Claines Lane, Worcester, and Harriers were in control pretty much from the off – Nicklin’s 22nd goal of the term opening the scoring in the first half as she turned home from a corner.
Cookley had their spells of pressure but only really forced Harriers goalkeeper into one good save during the afternoon – by which time they were already 2-0, the score doubled for Aggborough’s girls by the first of Savva’s double; a cool finish after latching on to Kirsty Roberts’ fine pass.
Cookley had a spell of pressure during the second half but were 3-0 down as Savva added a third for the team, a blasted finish from close range to stem the flow of any possible comeback. There was, at the end, a consolation for the Midwest Counties team as they fired in an impressive effort from distance.
Congratulations go to the girls, manager James Astle and Chairman Malcolm Cowell along with everyone who works so hard to keep the Ladies side running so successfully. Yet again we’re the Pride of Worcestershire!
