Albion Women progressed into the final of the Birmingham County Cup thanks to a dominant 7-0 victory over Sutton Coldfield.

Evie Gallop scored two, along with goals from Fran Orthodoxou, Keeley Davies, Moriah McIntosh, Leigh Dugmore and Trina Greaves.

Louis Sowe’s side got off to the best possible start as Orthodoxou’s shot from range in the first minute of the game flew into the corner of the Sutton net.

The midfielder then stung the hands of Hannah Tromans in the Sutton goal with another effort from distance.

Davies then doubled the lead for Albion on 25 minutes, firing past Tromans from the edge of the area.

Gallop then scored her first of the afternoon with a shot that cannoned in off the crossbar, before converting her second shortly after half-time to put the Baggies in a commanding position in the tie.

Hattie James hit the crossbar with a lobbed effort before Moriah McIntosh came off the bench to score her first goal in Albion colours after 57 minutes.

Another of Sowe’s substitutes came off the bench to score when Dugmore netted Albion’s sixth of the day with a curling effort into the top corner from 25 yards.

Greaves then finished the scoring in the 81st minute, her low effort from the edge of the area evading Tromans in the visitor’s goal.

Albion will now play either Wolves or Birmingham and West Midlands in the final.

ALBION: Kinnerley, Stamps, Elsmore, Owen, George (Tezgel 56); Orthodoxou (Nymoen 45), Greaves; Davies (Dugmore 56), Murray (McIntosh 56), Gallop; James (Arber 66).
