United ladies are league cup winners

12:00pm Wednesday 16th April 2014

EVESHAM United won the Herefordshire and Worcestershire Women's Football League Cup final.

They thrashed Ludlow 7-0 at Stourport Swifts with centre-half Millie Meadows voted Evesham's player-of-the-match.

United are also in pole position for the league title ahead of Sunday's visit to Hereford Lads Club.

Although cup final nerves were shown early on, Hannah Campbell hit a first-time shot just wide.

Midway through the first-half, the breakthrough came when Campbell picked up a ball on the left-hand side of the area and shot into the far corner.

Evesham relaxed as Rosie Johns broke through the defence to shoot low under the keeper and double the lead.

Sophie Griffiths fired Johns' cross into the net to make it 3-0 at the break.

Katie Armento then bagged a second-half hat-trick and Griffiths headed in captain Johns' centre to complete the scoring.
