A late injury time winner from Chantelle Stanley sent Copsewood (Coventry) into the Midland Combination League Cup Final on Thursday night as they beat arch rivals Coventry City 2-1 in their semi final at Allard Way.
In the fourth meeting between the two Coventry sides this season, the Sky Blues took a first half lead on the stroke of half time through Catherine Lawson who netted on her debut, before former Sky Blue Amanda Whalley levelled the contest early in the second half and Chantelle Stanley popped up to hit a stoppage winner.
Copsewood's success will go some way to erasing the memory of a
3-2 F.A.Women's Cup defeat at the hands of their bigger City rivals back in November. While a top four finish is probably the most realistic Copsewood can achieve in the first season of Combination football, it is no mean feat for a club which has steadily risen through the ranks of the women's football pyramid over the past five years. While the Sky Blues' hopes of capturing a league and cup 'treble' were ended, City will now turn their attentions to the Birmingham County Cup Final - where they take on Aston Villa - and an end of season title race with Derby County and Wolves, who still have an outside chance.
Copsewood will now take on the winners of the second semi final, which is to be contested between holders Derby County and TNS & Shrewsbury Town.
