They booked their place in the Cambridgeshire Women’s League Championship Cup showpiece with a 3-1 triumph against Burwell Tigers in a semi-final clash last Sunday.

Jade Carpenter slotted the opening goal after a fine pass from Emilee Steel, but the Saints side were pegged back before Carpenter saw a penalty saved.

However, Carpenter did succeed in finding the net again on the hour to restore her side’s lead and their passage was secured by a high-class Fran Worrall strike.

The Development side, who are also chasing promotion in the Championship South, will now face Wisbech Town in the final later in the season.
