Newcastle United Women 3 Alnwick Town Ladies 0
Newcastle United Women are through to the final of the Bluefin Sport Insurance Women's Cup after a convincing win over Alnwick Town Ladies on Sunday.
The Lady Magpies - who are the current holders after last season's competition was cancelled due to the Covid-19 outbreak - will now face Wallsend BC Women in the final at Whitley Park.
Becky Langley's side took the lead in the 19th minute of this semi-final when Katie Barker fed Kacie Elson, who fired into the top corner of the net.
But she doubled United's lead in the 69th minute after latching onto Georgia Gibson's through ball and, after Gibson had seen a free kick crash back off the crossbar, Barker got her second and Newcastle's third in the 82nd minute following Sharna Wilkinson's lay-off.
Wallsend BC Ladies beat Cullercoats Ladies 12-2 in the other semi-final and the final will be played on Friday, 21st May. More details will be announced in due course.
