Report: SGS Female Football 3 - Solihull College 2 - ESFA Cup final

SGS Female Football were crowned champions of the ESFA Cup at Meadow Lane after a 96th minute winner.

Goals from Holly Reed and double from Rhianne Oakley were enough to secure the victory.

Reed’s goals gave SGS the lead, before Solihull equalised before the break. Immediately after the break, Oakley slotted home, before Solihull equalised soon after which was typical of this end-to-end encounter.

The game looked set for extra-time, until Oakley’s 96th minute winner ensured bedlam ensued on the pitch, in the dugout and in the stands.

Everyone at the club would like to congratulate James Thomas and the team on this magnificent achievement.

City Women face Manchester City on Sunday, March 25th. Tickets are available here.
