Julian Dicks’ Ladies have reached the Final of the London FA Capital Women’s Cup, where they will face FA Women’s Premier League South rivals Charlton Athletic in a tough game at Harrow Borough.
The two sides have met three times already this season with both league fixtures ending in a draw and the Ryman Women’s Cup early stages saw the Addicks knock West Ham out 3-1.
In the run up to the finals, West Ham Ladies beat Spurs Ladies away in the first round by winning on penalties after the scoreline being 4-4 after extra time, before the Hammers went away to Haringey and won 7-0 in the quarter final and beat Queens Park Rangers 2-0 away in the semi finals.
Kick-off at Harrow Borough FC is Wednesday 6th May at 7:30pm with admission priced at £6 for adults or £3 for children. Alternatively, West Ham Ladies official twitter channel @westhamladies will have live content and coverage throughout the day, including interviews with Julian Dicks and some of the players LIVE on Periscope. Address of stadium:
Earlsmead Stadium,Earlsmead, Harrow, Middlesex, HA2 8SS
Prior to kick-off, both clubs have agreed to remember former player Katie Sheppard once again with a minute’s silence, with both captains laying down a shirt with Katie’s name on it in the middle so she can still be a part of this big night.
The Hammers currently sit in sixth place in the FA Women’s Premier League South with just one more league fixture left to play. After picking up two wins (Cardiff) and a draw (Brighton) against title-chasing Cardiff and Brighton, the Hammers could have another say in the title race when they travel to new league favourites Portsmouth on the final day of the season (10th May).
