Lincoln City Women are in confident mood as they look forward to Friday evening’s Lincolnshire FA County Cup final against Sleaford Town Ladies.
The Imps are riding high after a dominant 8-0 win at Burton Albion last weekend, and take on Sleaford at Gainsborough Trinity’s Northolme Stadium (7.45pm KO)
In their last game against Burton Albion Women behind closed doors, Lincoln City Women look forward to their Lincolnshire FA County Cup Final against Sleaford Town Ladies at Gainsborough Trinity on Friday 29th April.
The Imps sit third in the Division One Midlands table after a terrific run of eight games unbeaten in which they have been relentless in front of goal, scoring 21 goals in their last five matches.
Despite falling just short of promotion to the third tier of women’s football, this season has been the most successful in their history.
As well as matching last season’s third-place spot, their highest-ever league finish, the Imps reached the fourth round of the Women’s FA Cup where their run was only ended by Liverpool - who went on to win the Women’s Championship.
Manager Lee Mitchell said: “The team has been phenomenal over the past few weeks. I can see all our hard work in training paying off on the pitch.
“It’s not just this week they’ve been incredible. There have been ups and downs this year, but the team have put in 100% throughout the whole season and I couldn’t be more proud of them.
Looking forward to the final, Mitchell is confident that if the team plays with the same hunger and desire they will claim the silverware.
He added: “The County Cup would cap off successful season for us. While we didn’t get promotion, we were so close. This has just given us more desire to go and win the league next year.
“We have the talent and the facilities to do so. But the County Cup would be the cherry on top of a very impressive season overall.”
Friday night’s match is all-ticket, with entrance £5 for adults and £3 concessions. Tickets can be purchased at https://lincolnshirefa.eventcube.io/
After the County Cup, the team look to their final game of the season – at home against Wem Town on Sunday. If you are interested in attending, the team play at Moorlands. Entry is £4 or £1 for those that are under-16.
