FAWPL Cup & Plate Semi-Finals This Sunday

Sunday 5th March (2pm)

Charlton Athletic v Blackburn Rovers (Sporting Club Thamesmead)
Tottenham Hotspur v Cardiff City LFC (Cheshunt FC)

Huddersfield Town v Actonians (PPG Canalside, 2.30pm)
Leicester City Women P-P Lewes 

Charlton face Blackburn in a clash of the FAWPL’s top two teams, with the Addicks having just taken over the Southern Division leadership and Rovers being champions elect in the Northern,

Tottenham take on Cardiff in the other Cup semi-final, with the Welsh side looking to avenge their defeat by Spurs in last season’s final. The league form of both is strong, sitting only a point behind the leaders but they are not scheduled to go head to head in the Southern Division until the second half of April, when they play each other twice. 

Huddersfield will hope to make the most of home advantage in the Plate, as the Terriers entertain Actonians. Town play a division higher and sit just below mid-table, while their visitors from West London are enjoying an improved campaign in the South East Division 1.

Leicester City Women are pushing hard for the runners-up spot after promotion to the Northern in 2015-16 and welcome Sussex side Lewes. The Rookettes are a little way off the top five in the Southern but looking quite safe and boss John Donoghue has just received the FAWPL Northern/Southern Manager of the Month Award for January.

The FAWPL Reserve Cup and FAWPL Plate Finals will be played on Sunday 23rd April at Brackley Town FC.
