Dorset FA Women’s Cup Final

Poole Town Ladies won the Dorset Women’s Cup for the fifth consecutive season with a convincing 7-0 win over Dorchester Town Ladies at the County Ground, Hamworthy on Tuesday evening.

Maisy Smith scored twice in the first 20 minutes to put the Dolphins in control of the match. At this point the Dorchester task was made all the more difficult when they lost Ellie Saunders through injury.

The Magpies, who play three tiers below their opponents, defended stoutly and there was no further score before half time.

Four minutes after the resumption, Rebecca Miles scored direct from a corner kick and Smith quickly completed her hat trick. Further goals followed from Jemma Tewkesbury and Faye Rolfe-Hawkins, before a Sacha Paynter rounded off the scoring with 15 minutes remaining despite the best efforts of keeper Cherys Stimpson who made several fine saves in the Dorchester goal throughout the match.

The trophy was presented to the Poole Town Ladies Captain Rebecca Witherington by the Chairman of the Dorset County FA, Women’s Cup Committee, Stephen Pike.
