Arsenal Ladies win FA Women's Cup


ARSENAL LADIES lifted their 12th FA Women’s Cup yesterday as they beat Bristol Academy 3-0 at Doncaster’s Keepmoat Stadium to secure their 39th major trophy since being formed in 1987.
Steph Houghton scored with a powerful header after two minutes, Jordan Nobbs doubled the lead with her header on 72 minutes before Ellen White tapped in the third in added time.

Arsenal took the lead with the first attack of the game, Rachel Yankey roaming down the left to pick out Houghton, who headed beyond Siobhan Chamberlain at the far post.

Arsenal coach Shelley Kerr said: “We have been so successful in the past and the expectations have been so high.

“For me it’s all about the players – they have been exceptional today. Before the game, I just said to them ‘relax’. We have been playing good football and sometimes you just have to be patient to get results. I thought we won comfortably in the end."
