Ladies In Cup Action

Natalie Hall Cassie Hyde

Stoke City Ladies return to home action this weekend, hoping to pick up their first competitive win of the season.

The girls fell to a 5-3 defeat at Leicester last week following an opening day loss at home to Blackburn.

But the arrival of Birmingham & West Midlands in the League Cup could well provide the springboard to kick-start Stoke’s season.

Birmingham & West Midlands lie in Midlands Division 1- one rung below The Potters- which makes Stoke favourites to progress, although the visitors come off the back of a 2-1 away win at Long Eaten United.

Stoke had a morale boosting victory in a midweek runout against Notts County’s development squad and will be hoping to follow that up with success on Sunday.

A late couple of goals from Hannah Keryakopolis and captain Meg Bowyer made last week’s reverse at newly promoted Leicester a little more palatable, particularly after the ladies were 4-1 down at half-time- Lucy Ridgway’s goal scant consolation in the opening 45 minutes.

The team will take heart from the spirit of going to the final whistle though and Birmingham & West Midlands will be wary of a side eager to chalk off a first victory.

Kick-off on Sunday is scheduled for 2:30pm at Community Drive, ST6 1QF. Get on down and cheer the Stoke City Ladies towards victory.
