F.A.Women's Cup - Road to the Final
Sheffield FC equalled their best run in the competition with a 5-0 victory over C & K Basildon in the last round. All of the goals came in the second half, Emma Johnson giving them the lead and Jodie Michalska then netted twice in quick succession. Michalska went on to add two more goals in the last five minutes, taking her personal haul to four on the day.
Sheffield will now be at home to Radcliffe Olympic who hit the headlines in the Third Round for a stunning 2-0 victory over WSL side Durham Women. Rania Ramadan and Brogan Jones scored the goals to take Sam Winch's side into the Fourth Round for the first time in their history and they are the last remaining team from the fourth tier.
In August 1999, a few mates, Kate Tinsley among them, were having a kick around on Bingham Road and agreed to set up a ladies football team. Word soon spread and, aided by the fantastic coaching of ex-Notts County player Mick Vinter, Dayncourt Ladies FC was founded and started playing in the Third Division of the Unison East Midlands Women's Football League.
Since then the first team has been promoted through the divisions, reaching many a cup final en route and now plays in the FA Women's Premier League Midlands Division One. Kate and many other willing volunteers also began coaching sessions for girls on Saturday mornings and the club soon comprised both ladies and girls teams. Dayncourt then merged with Radcliffe Olympic and have not looked back since.
The team is managed by Sam Winch and assisted by Paul Bryce and Sophie Turner, with Sarah Green as Coach. Laura Turner is first team captain and leading scorer is Danni Saulter, while the likes of Beth Bailey, Alex Saulter and Rania Ramadan are also regularly amongst the goals.
As well as their run in the F.A.Women's Cup, Radcliffe have also reached the Final of the County Cup. In the league, they currently lie in mid-table but with several games in hand on the teams above them.
