The Football League Paper - - WOMEN'S FOOTBALL WEEKLY -

AS a kid, ev­ery­one wants to grow up and play at Wem­b­ley. The FA Cup fi­nal be­ing played there has been a long time com­ing.

The fact those Chelsea and Notts County girls have ex­pe­ri­enced that i s fan­tas­tic.

It’s been con­firmed the fi­nal will be there next sea­son too and that’s a big deal. I think the FA were see­ing if they got a good crowd and a big TV au­di­ence – and they did.

Per­haps it wasn’t the best game in the world, prob­a­bly be­cause it was such an his­toric event be­ing the first fi­nal played there, and I know both teams have said they could play bet­ter.

But it was still a good ad­vert for women’s football. I was co-com­men­tat­ing on the day but I must ad­mit I wished I was out there my­self.

Who knows, maybe next year?
