Hethersett Athletic Ladies will not be underestimating the opposition when they go into their Eastern Region Cup Final against Barking on Sunday.
Despite having beaten Barking twice in the league this season, Hethersett know that it is the team that performs on the day that will take the trophy.
“Getting to the cup final was one of our aims for this season and we have been training hard for this game. We believe that we can bring the trophy back to Norfolk but we certainly won't be under-estimating Barking. It is the team that has most desire on the day that will win. Barking are tough opposition and a cup final is a cup final,” said coach and joint manager Tom Parke.
Parke will be leaving his team selection to the last minute for the game which kicks off at Soham Rangers FC at 3pm.
“I will pick the team from how the players perform at training leading up to the match and also on their commitment. I hope that the local community will support us and recognise how well we have done this season,” Parke added.
Hethersett will be hoping to add the cup to their Eastern Region Division One East championship gained last season. They still have a genuine chance of winning the Premier Division this season although the destiny of that trophy could be out of their hands.
