Wymondham Town Ladies take on reigning champions Thorpe United in the Norfolk Women's Cup on Friday at the FDC Field of Dreams (7.30pm).

The south Norfolk side will be looking to build on their third-place finish in Division One of the Eastern Region Women's Football League and will be full of confidence following their 4-2 semi-final win over Acle United Ladies to reach their first ever Norfolk Women's Cup final.

Wymondham Town manager Alex Guy was full of praise for his team ahead of the final.

'This is the first time that we have featured in a County Cup final, having been knocked out by Thorpe last season in an earlier round, and also by Acle United the year before that in the semi-final,' he said. 'To reach an occasion such as this is a fantastic moment for the club.'

Thorpe United are top of the Norfolk Women's & Girls Football League Division One meaning that they are on course for a League and Cup double. This is United's fifth Norfolk Women's Cup final, and they could become the second team to win back to back finals, after Norwich City Ladies.
