Gills Ladies cup run comes to an end
Gillingham Ladies welcomed Tottenham Hotspur Ladies to Chatham Town FC in the FA WPL Plate on Sunday, February, 7. This is the second time the teams have met this season, the first match ended with a 5-3 win for Tottenham Hotspur Ladies in the Ryman League Cup.
Tottenham Hotspur Ladies started well and early in the first half were awarded a free kick that they converted with a great shot to take the lead (0-1). Similar to the match against Newcastle Utd WFC the previous week, Gills Ladies were unable to capitalise on the chances they created. Unfortunately the score ended 1-0 to Tottenham Hotspur Ladies and Gills Ladies run in the FA Women’s Cup came to an end.

This weekend Gills Ladies return to league action for the first time since late November and the team will be on the road to face Denham Utd LFC on Sunday, February 14. Good luck girls.
