SSE Women's FA Cup - Road to the Final
Our northern tie sees Penrith AFC, of the North West League, play host to Bishop Auckland of the Durham County Women's League.
Penrith AFC are one of the longest serving teams in the North West League, having been members since 2001 when they switched from the Northern League. Initially playing in Division Two, they were switched to the newly formed Division One North in 2005 and have remained there ever since. The club has finished third on four occasions but came closest to winning promotion in 2014-15, when they ended up as runners-up on goal difference to title winners Accrington Girls & Ladies.
The team is managed by Simon Savage with Matt Owens as coach and captain is Kim McCormick. Penrith have got off to a good start this season with victories in both of their opening games and this leaves them in second place in the table.
Bishop Auckland FC are one of the most successful amateur sides, having won the FA Amateur Cup ten times and reached the final on a further eight occasions. This is the official ladies team for Bishop Auckland FC and they current play in Division One of the DCFA Women's League. The current season is their fourth at county level and the second one playing in Division One. After sitting top of Division One at Christmas last season, the results for the second half of the season were not good and the team finished third at the end of May. They also reached the Finals of the FA People's Cup in Sheffield.
Last season saw the Ladies section set up a new Development team and they compete in the same league as the ladies, but play in the Development Division.
The team is managed by Kate "Bob" Vogelsang, who took over the role in July. A coach and player for over twenty years, she is a Southend United fan and FA Level 2 Football Coach who is looking to pursue her UEFA B qualification in the very near future. In 2014 she set up a women's team at Wanderers FC (the winners of the first FA Cup in 1872), where she was the team manager and coach until she recently relocated to the North East.
Club Secretary, Jackie Cleminson co-founded the ladies section in May 2013 and has undertaken the role since. She was previously the club Treasurer, Manager and Coach at Bishop Auckland St Marys JFC for ten years and she founded the Development team last year. Jackie has been a volunteer in junior and adult football for the last 18 years.
Leah Curry, a central midfielder in her second full season at BA Ladies, is currently captain for the second successive year. Born in Bishop Auckland, she is a seasoned and experienced player who has played football since a child. She has previously played for Durham/Durham University Wildcats and had received the club Player of the Year for the last two seasons.
