The Divas booked a place in the Sussex County Women & Girls Football League Cup Final with a deserved victory thanks to two goals from Millie and Skye to see off Newhaven in the semi-final.

After narrowly missing out on a cup-final place last year, The Divas started the match with a spring in their step. The Diva’s applied some good early pressure, Cydney did score early on, only for the goal to be ruled out for offside. With momentum with The Divas, the ball fell to Millie who took her chance well to make the score 1-0 after 12 minutes. Skye then doubled the home side’s advantage on 14 minutes with a fine solo effort. Just a few minutes later the girls made their pressure count again with Millie scoring her second of the match on the 18th minute to put the team well on the way to their first ever cup-final appearance.

The second half was a much tighter affair. To their credit, Newhaven Girls upped the tempo and their game in the second period and made The Divas work hard to maintain their lead. No further goals were added. The blistering first 20 minutes meant The Divas were able to hold-on and defend their lead.

Congratulations to The Divas. The team will now meet rivals Eastbourne Girls in the final later this spring in what promises to be a great final.
