Southampton Saints Ladies saw off a resilient New Forest Ladies to win the Southampton Divisional FA Women`s Challenge Cup for the fourth consecutive time.
The first twenty minutes were a cagey affair with New Forest`s long ball to the dangerous Sheree Bell-Jack causing the Saints back four concerns. Soon after Saints were in front and there was to be no way back for New Forest.
Catherine Browning, from the edge of the area, curled the ball left footed past the despairing dive of Lou Worsfold in the Forest goal.
It was Browning again on the scoresheet with a deft header just inside the far post. Saints were on the up now and Browning now turned provider, laying the ball edge of area for Jess Lewry to strike a superb shot top left to put Saints three up at the break.
The game was all but over on 58 mins as Browning deservedly got her third and Saints fourth.
Saints made a change with Becki Bath replacing Lib Pritchard on 60 mins, shortly followed by the introduction of Jemma Tewkesbury for the hard working Emma Whitlock.
Saints were still creating chances with Tewkesbury going close with a sweetly struck volley and Shez Palk causing problems down the left.
Saints captain Krystal Whyte proudly lifted the Cup in front of a sizable crowd at Solent University`s Test park venue and the Southampton FA awarded Catherine Browning with the player of the match.
Saints manager Adam Lee said: "We have had a fine season in the FA Women`s Premier South West and to top it with silverware is very pleasing. With our season finishing in February we now have to keep the players active and focused for our Hampshire FA County Cup Final against Portsmouth in April."
