Capital Women's Cup set for inaugural Finals Day
 Women's Football News 17 Apr 2014
 
Each season County FAs across the country run County Cups and the competition between teams is intense, each club wanting to make it to the Final. 
 
This season the London FA, Amateur Football Alliance (AFA) and Middlesex FA have worked together to create the Capital Women's Cup, in order to increase the level of competition between clubs in the London region.
 
The brainchild of Jackie Newing from the AFA, the competition has been designed to incorporate three tiered competitions; with clubs classified as Senior, Intermediate or Junior based on their current league division and then grouped together accordingly.
 
Previously, the three County FAs ran five separate competitions. These tournaments brought together teams of wildly differing abilities, creating huge mismatches which were ultimately affecting the number of entries received. Thus, the three Counties agreed to pilot the idea of a cross-county competition and as a result the Capital Women's Cup was formed!
 
Over 60 clubs participated in the inaugural season. Thirty two teams entered into the Junior Cup for grassroots women's clubs, 21 took part in the Intermediate Cup, with a further 9 teams in the Senior section.
The feedback from clubs that have entered has been very positive, with those taking part looking forward to the opportunity to play new clubs and finding the increased competition a challenge. Under-18 teams were also given the chance to enter and get their first taste of open-aged football in the Junior Cup.
 
The competition culminates with the Finals Day at Imber Court, Metropolitan Sports Ground on Sunday 27th April, with the three Finals being held on one day. The finalists are:
 
Junior Cup - Colne Valley Ladies U18 v Denham United Ladies U18, KO 10.30am
Intermediate Cup - Brentford Women v Queens Park Rangers Ladies U18, KO 2pm
Senior Cup - Charlton Athletic WFC v Queens Park Rangers Ladies, KO 5.30pm

 
The Capital Women's Cup has presented a great opportunity for the clubs and has gone a long way to providing well structured and competitive Cup Competitions for the London region.
