In the day's top flight West Midlands Premier Division battle, two of the leading promotion candidates met at Allard Way in Coventry as unbeaten Copsewood Coventry took on leaders Stoke City.
Coventry Copsewood, the last remaining Regional League club left in the F.A.Women's Cup, warmed up for their big day this coming Sunday by condemning Stoke to only their second defeat of the season in ten outings with two goals inside the last five minutes. Stoke took the lead with a 25-yard free kick which was cancelled out by Nicola Foskett's 24th minute equaliser, before two goals inside the last five minutes earned Copsewood victory, the lively Foskett being uprooted by the visitors defence for Kayleigh Brookes to hit home an 85th minute penalty and, still reeling from that late setback, Stoke fell further behind as Leanne McKenna slotted home on 88 minutes, following an inch perfect cross from Foskett.
Copsewood's success in this year's FA Women's Cup has been recognised after being voted as Team Of The Round for their victory over Midland Combination opponents Alfreton Town.
The side started out as works outfit Coventry Marconi and taking the field next Sunday for the club's biggest game will be just two players from the original works team. Kayleigh Brookes and Marsha Towey have both worn the colours of Marconi and have seen the team go from strength to strength under the guidance of Manager Mick Connelly, who only originally agreed to manage Copsewood for a few months. Now, seven years later, he is preparing his team of their biggest game in their history when they take on Premier League Northern Division side Crewe Alexandra.
