Craig Gibbons 25th May, 2018

SOLIHULL Moors under-16s lifted the Birmingham FA Girls Cup for the first time in their history with a resounding 5-0 victory over Cookley.

Annie Stanway had given Moors a 1-0 half-time lead before Mollie Richardson, Ellie Finnegan, Beth Harborne and Lyndsey Baker all scored in the second period to cap off a fine display.

Moors under-16 girls manager Richard Stanway said: “It was a fantastic achievement for a fantastic squad of players.

“It has been a very long and unbelievably competitive season.

“Winning this cup for the first time is a massive leap forward for girls’ football at Solihull Moors and for girls’ football in general across the borough.”

Moors’ cup winning run started with a 6-0 home victory over Withymoor Colts in the second round.

They then ran out 3-0 winners at Kingshurst Sporting Club in the quarter-finals before overcoming Burton Albion Girls 3-2 on penalties in the semis after the match had ended 3-3 after 90 minutes.
