Both our Under 15’s girls and our WVFC Ladies teams have made it through to the League cup and plate finals!!!
The finals are to be held at Raunds FC on Saturday the 20th May
The U15’s kick off at approx 1.45pm (against Parklands Tigers) and The Ladies are on straight after at about 3.30pm, playing Rothwell Town ladies.
‘The U15 girls have had a fantastic season, having won their league and also looking to complete the double of league cup winners in the final. We will be hoping to win the league cup for the 2nd season in a row having been victorious in the U14 final last year. Once again our opponents will be Parklands Tigers, our closest rivals and also the team we beat 2-1 in the final last year.
This team has only been together for the past 2 seasons and what they have achieved in such a short space of time is an absolute credit to them and their coaches.
The ladies will be playing Rothwell Town in the final, after coming through a tough semi final against Earls Barton on penalties after a hard fought 0-0 draw, the core of this team have progressed through from the past few seasons playing in the girls youth league, and to reach a final in their 1st season in adult football is an amazing achievement, especially when we were struggling to even be able to field 11 players in the 1st few games of the season. The team regularly includes at least 6 or 7 girls who are 16, and over the course of the season we have been able to recruit and add some older (although only slightly) players, and the improvement, especially since the start of the new year has been truly superb, and this cup final appearance is nothing less than they deserve.
The coaches Andy and Paul are very proud of both teams and they really do deserve these finals as a reward for their hard work and determination this season.
Both teams would appreciate your support on cup finals day, so get yourselves over to Raunds on Saturday 20th of May to support the girls, ladies, and of course Welland Valley FC!!!!!
We are running a coach to and from Raunds at a cost of £5 per person if anyone wants to come on it, leaving from Wootton Village, contact Andy or Paul for details.
