SSE Women's FA Cup - Road to the Final
Kidderminster Harriers continue to carry the flag into the Third Round Qualifying, winning their third tie of the season against a spirited St John's side. Amber Lawrence, Kirsty Roberts, Alex Nicklin and Amie Savva scored the goals as the Harriers won 4-1 and they now have the chance to take on a National League team in the shape of Solihull Moors, who reached this stage with a 3-2 extra time victory over Loughborough Students, thanks to Alice Belcher, Amelia Kirk and Abbie Taylor.
Formed in 1953, Solihull Moors was originally known as Lincoln FC, before combining Solihull Borough and Moor Green football clubs in 2007 to form one of the youngest clubs in English football. After seven strong years with the men's team, successful efforts culminated in a strong youth structure and formation of the Ladies team in 2013-14. The team joined the FA Women's National League in 2014-15, establishing a strong mid-table finish with 29 points from 22 games in their first campaign to bag seventh place.
From there, Moors continued to develop and hone in on their skills, building on foundations to achieve a stellar fourth placed finish in 2015-16. Three points off third, Solihull gained six more points than the previous season, securing a 50% win percentage.
The last two seasons have seen Moors enter a transitional phase with the breakthrough of various young players helping to form Sarah Westwood's side. A ninth placed finish in 2016-17 was bettered by two places the following year, reflecting the team's solidity within Midlands Division One.
Sarah Westwood is the manager of the first team, assisted by a coaching staff of Keith Bertschin, Colin Matthews and Piers Webster. The team is captained by Abbie Taylor, with Pip Harmison as vice captain,
A fascinating tie is in prospect at Aggborough Stadium this Sunday as the home side look to pit their wits against National League opponents (2pm).
