Argyle round off 2017 in style

Plymouth Argyle ended 2017 with a remarkable 2-1 win at Cardiff City to reach the third round of the FA Women’s Premier League Cup.

Top scorer Natasha Knapman took her season’s tally to 37 when scoring the second goal after Becky Atkins had given the Pilgrims the lead.

Argyle have now beaten Premier League Southern Division teams Chichester City (3-1), in the Premier League Cup, and Gillingham (3-1), in the SSE FA Cup.

The Devon side are yet to find out who they will face in the next round of the Premier competition but will already be looking forward to the trip to Northern Division outfit Fylde in the FA Cup next month.
