Women's FA Cup - First Round Replay
Cambridge City 0 : 2 Cambridge United (Played at Mildenhall Town FC)
In a game that never really got going, it was Cambridge United who managed to progress through to round two of the Women's FA Cup with a couple of second half goals, the first being a disputed penalty decision. Up to this point, proceedings in this encounter had been pretty even, but with United using the technical advantage of playing downhill in the second period, it certainly helped their cause. A few chances came and went for City, but nothing like we are used to seeing from them. Although City fought to the final whistle, they never really managed to get into top gear. Celebrations in the United camp were somewhat subdued at the end, perhaps due to the circumstances of how they find themselves in the second round.
The Club would like to congratulate the City Ladies and the management staff on how they have conducted themselves over what can only be described as an interesting last couple of weeks since their initial victory over United.
The Club would like to say a massive thank you to former City player and captain, Tony Rule. Tony, who is now managing director of AIA (Cambridge) Ltd and proprietor of the Yorkshire Building Society Agency in Cambridge, played for the Lilywhites back in the 70's and 80's and not only did he sponsor today's match, but he generously did the same for the first match too. Your kindness Tony, is very much appreciated.
And finally, the Club would also like to place on record their thanks to all those within the footballing community (and beyond) who have shown their support for City and the situation they found themselves in recently. Thank you.

Cambridge City v Soham
This game provided everything - but most importantly, it was played by two teams who obviously love playing football. Although Soham are a recently formed team, they already have a fabulous team spirit. Their goalkeeper was in great form too! Well done girls.
