THE FA Women’s National League will be heading to the Pirelli Stadium on Sunday, April 28.
Burton Albion FC will host the FA Women’s National League Cup Final.
The game sees a clash between two teams who have already secured their respective divisional titles, Crawley Wasps Ladies and Blackburn Rovers Ladies.
Crawley Wasps Ladies recently wrapped up the FA WNL Division 1 South East title, where they have only lost one league match all season.
Their tremendous form saw them reach the 4th round of the SSE Women’s FA Cup, where they proved a stern test for Arsenal WFC. In the league they have won 17 of 19 fixtures, scoring 83 goals and conceding just 8. Next year they will be moving up to tier 3 of the women’s pyramid, in the FA WNL Southern Premier.
Blackburn Rovers Ladies have been one of the most successful teams of the FA WNL in recent seasons, and are current holders of the League Cup. They recently secured the title in the FA WNL Northern Premier with 5 games to spare, and have also reached the Lancashire FA Women’s Challenge Cup Final. In the league they need just 3 more goals to pass their century for the season, having been on red hot form throughout 2018/19.
FA Women’s National League Chairman Carol West said: "We’re delighted to be heading to Burton Albion FC for this massively exciting final. The FA Women’s National League Cup Final is a huge event for the FA WNL and I know that both Crawley Wasps and Blackburn Rovers will more than do the match justice on the day.
“Both clubs are worthy finalists after immensely successful campaigns and I’m sure both will be determined to lift the Cup.”
