Stoke Make It Nine In A Row

Stoke City were last night 5-0 winners over Sporting Khalsa Development to lift their ninth successive Staffs Cup.

It was the Potters' ninth successive Staffordshire FA County Cup and twelfth in all, whilst for their opponents it was a first such final.

Jamilla Palmer headed the opening goal on 23 minutes but Phoebe Carter kept Stoke to a 1-0 interval lead when pushing Hollie Gibson's effort onto the bar.

Moments after Sporting had to make a change through injury, Millie Elson slotted City 2-0 up in the 48th minute following up Kate Asher's shot against the post, then another knock forced the underdogs to again make a substitution.

Two goals in a three-minute spell midway through the half sealed the win, as both Kelsey Richardson and Harriet Wellings found the net, the latter via a Gibson cross.

With minutes to go, Cassie Hyde got her first goal of the season to complete the scoring at 5-0.
