SSE Women's FA Cup - Road to the Final
Kidderminster Harriers swept through to the Second Round Qualifying with a 9-0 victory over Hereford Lads Club. Amber Lawrence and Alex Nicklin each hit a hat-trick for Harriers whose other goals came from Sophie Richards, Kirsty Roberts and Molly Maguire. Kidderminster will be away for the third successive round as they must travel to play St John's, who won 5-4 after extra time against Sandwell Ladies, including a hat-trick from Fay Large.
St John's Football Club was founded in the 1970s as an adult male football club. The club expanded in the 80s to add junior kids teams. The club took the name from the church and St John's Juniors FC was born. The expansion has continued throughout the seasons now with seven junior girls teams and 17 junior boys teams as well as a newly formed ladies football club for this season, 2018-19.
The manager of the ladies team is Chad Male, who is new to the club, helping develop the junior girls teams as well as managing the ladies team. Club captains are Jade Lapthorne and Emma Baggott and both are long standing players within the ladies game.
There are several people that work tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure the ladies play football each week, which include Samantha Taylor-Whitehead and Chelsea Adams who are the coaches and plan all training sessions. Emma Baggott, as well as being one of the club captains, also has the responsibility of the playing kit being cleaned after every game and prepared for the following game.
St John's Ladies FC are a Charter Standard ladies football team who currently play in the Staffordshire County League. They are also a sister club to Birmingham City WFC.
The match will be played at St John's Holly Lane ground (2pm).
