Ten out of ten for Forest

Ten out of ten for Forest - 15 Mar 2014 - Women's Football News

Nottingham Forest made history on Tuesday at Mansfield Hosiery Mills FC by retaining the Nottinghamshire FA Women's Cup for the tenth successive year following an entertaining encounter with a resourceful Radcliffe Olympic side. 
With a visible sloping pitch, Forest started on the downhill and had to moderate the pace on each pass as a result.
Forest applied the pressure early but with Olympic responding with some resolute defending, Forest took fifteen minutes to break the deadlock. Radcliffe Olympic's Lauren Plummer intercepted both Forest's Andi Bell and the ball to prevent a clear run on goal, but the loose ball was collected by Forest's Greaves who slotted a searching ball behind the Olympic defence for Amber Hughes to force home from close range.
Forest's second on the 35 minute mark arrived courtesy of a deflection from Olympic's Demi Draycott from a Meg Howard shot that wrongfooted Olympic keeper Amber Gormanly.
The last goal of the first half also went to Forest after Annabel McKechnie delivered a corner for Ruth Titterton to finish from close range.
Radcliffe were still in the reckoning and shocked Forest with the goal of the game from Olympic's Taryn Hearn on 60 minutes. The midfielder had been industrious for Olympic and was able to collect the ball on the half way line to hit a spectacular shot that caught Forest's Keeper off her line. Radcliffe were clearly elated and the crowd responded accordingly to reward the effort.
Forest responded quickly though with Amber Hughes making a powerful run to cross from the left to find Andi Bell who smashed home from close range. Forest sealed their victory with the last effort of the game as captain Kelly Kennaugh headed home from a McKechnie perfectly delivered corner.
Forest Manager Paul Cudby spoke after the game: "I'm delighted for everyone involved in the club -players, coaches and committee alike. It's been a busy and challenging season for everyone involved at NFLFC, so to pick up this great piece of silverware will hopefully keep everyone motivated to continue taking the club forward.
"Credit to Radcliffe who gave an excellent account of themselves, hopefully next year the powers that be will stage the game more centrally in Nottingham, on an improved, non-sloping pitch. It would also benefit to play on a Thursday evening allowing teams that play on a Sunday more opportunity to recover, and make the game an even better spectacle for the county."
