Quarter final joy for WBA Women

ALBION booked their place in the Birmingham FA County Cup semi final with a 9-1 home win over Stockingford AA Pavilion Ladies on Sunday.

In front of a packed crowd at Boldmere St Michaels FC, the Baggies fell behind as early as the first minute. But they responded to take a 3-1 lead in at the break before further goals in the second half helped cement a place in the last four for Louis Sowe's side.

It was the visitors who struck first through Catherine Smith before debutant Laura Davies headed in Albion's equaliser just three minutes later.

Hannah George grabbed her first goal for the club to put the Baggies ahead before another debutant Natalie Murray added a two-goal cushion right on the stroke of half time.

After the restart both Nicole Dale and substitute Jennifer Kikomeko notched a brace along with Gina Burton plus a first senior goal for Justine Buckmire helped complete the Baggies rout.

ALBION: McElroy, Finn, George, Fellows, Burton, Hull, L.Price, Merritt, Murray, Davies, Dale.

Subs: H.Price, Kikomeko, Mitchell, James, Buckmire.

Albion return to FA Women's Premier League Northern Division action next Sunday at home to Fylde Ladies FC. (ko 2.30pm)
