#FUNFRIDAY: Women’s FA Cup 🏆 Photo Teasers & Smilers

Howdy campers. How is 2018 treating you so far? The first weekend of the New Year is bringing some top WSL action but it’s also packed to the rafters with cup excitement too, as the SSE Women’s FA Cup 3rd Rd takes place on Sunday.

So, for today’s slice of vaguely entertaining fare, we’ve grabbed some snaps from previous finals and found some funnies and also tampered with others (you Gooners are in for a treat), so see if you can work out who is hiding behind the trophies!


Firstly then, just for fun, can you think of a caption for either of these photos? Pop your suggestions in the comments section below, or on our Facebook page!

Ignoring our highly skilled ability to use design packages, we’ve dug up some photos of past cup winners celebrating and then very roughly dumped a trophy onto some of the smiling faces. Soooo, can you name the mugs behind the cups?


Arsenal beat Bristol Academy in the final in 2011. Can you name the trophy lifter in this pic? And do you know who is pretty in pink behind the actual trophy? (TWO points available)


Birmingham City’s Manager, David Parker celebrates their win over Chelsea in cup final in 2012 but who is sharing the weight of the silverware with him? (ONE point available)

Arsenal Ladies celebrate after winning the FA Cup in 2014. Can you work out who the two legends and a certain coach are, despite having cups on their happy mugs? (THREE points available)


Arsenal beat Chelsea to lift the 2016 trophy. Two more trophies have found their way onto the faces of two of their smiling stars. Can you name them both? (TWO points available)
