Chairman's Cup Semi-Final
Woking 1-1 Woodley United (0-3 Pens)
I would imagine that no-one at Woodley wants this season to end. This team just can't stop winning games of football. They were pushed all the way in this semi-final, however, as Woking took them to penalties. Gemma Sims gave Woodley the lead with a lovely free-kick a minute after Woking's keeper was shown a straight red for handling outside the box. The Cards showed great resolve to hit back with an equaliser 4 minutes later through Sheena Nichol. Woodley prevailed 3-0 in the shoot-out through Sophie Measham, May Hamblin and Gemma Sims, with Sophie Cheadle saving the first two Woking kicks.

We were also fortunate enough to have three top photographers on hand to capture the action.

Midweek action this week:
County Cup Quarter Final
Abbey Rangers v Eversley & California Reserves
After being informed that this game will feature Eversley's Reserve team (thank you Ella Chandler), I have had to make a quick edit. Eversley's Reserve side have had a fantastic season and lead the Thames Valley Division 3 South table by four points with a game in hand. Abbey finished mid-table in the Southern Region Div.1 South but were only a point shy of third place (as it stands). There may be a few divisions between the teams but Abbey will need to be on their guard against an Eversley side that has scored 71 goals in 15 league outings.
