Mitchell: Our hard work paid off

Manager Lee Mitchell felt Sunday’s win over Stamford was reward for the hard work the players have put in on the training pitch.

City’s 6-1 win sealed a place in the final of the County Cup, and Mitchell was particularly pleased with his attacking players.

He said: “We’ve been working on some things with the frontline to bring them more into the game. You saw them create chances and score some good goals which will build their confidence.

“They’re working really hard in training, it’s all the stuff away from a matchday and you only see the end product to that on the pitch.”

Mitchell is relishing the prospect of taking on Lincoln United in April’s County Cup final - believing the showpiece fixture highlights the positive health of women’s football in the region.

He said: “It’ll be a great final to watch and a good advert for Lincolnshire football, which is what we all want.

“Lincolnshire football is growing and growing. It's a big old county and we've got a lot of talent coming through,  so to have that on show in the final will be great.”
