Liverpool Feds lift County Cup for first time

Liverpool Marshalls Feds won the Liverpool FA County Cup final on Sunday against local rivals and previous holders Mossley Hill.

Laura Bartup came close with several chances for the Feds but it was the 83rd minute when captain Chantelle Thompson was fouled in the box and Sasha Rowe put away the penalty.

The well-contested game between the FAWPL Northern Division 1 sides was watched by 300 spectators at Walton Hall Park, and lived up to its derby day feeling with six bookings all together.

It was the first time in the Feds’ 25-year history that they won the trophy, having failed in four previous attempts; twice against Everton and twice against Mossley Hill.
