📝 Women's Preview: Derby County (H)

24 February 2024

Exeter City Women will look to book a place in the Final of the National League Cup Plate and earn a shot at the club’s first ever National Trophy as Derby County are the visitors to the Exwick Sports Hub on Sunday afternoon (2.00pm Kick Off)

The Rams are enjoying a strong season in the Northern Premier Division, a tier above the Grecians, currently sitting in fifth position. Victories over Stourbridge, Nottingham Forest, Huddersfield Town and AFC Flyde have consolidated their position, the victory at the City Ground the standout result of the season for Sam Griffiths’ team. Comfortable wins over Doncaster Rovers, Northampton Town and Sutton Coldfield secured County’s place in Sunday’s Semi Final, the Derbyshire side the only Premier side remaining in the competition and favourites for the title. 

Amy Sims has continued her fine form in Derby colours this season, seventeen goals in all competitions making her the leading forward in the division. Sims goalscoring talent has been supported by Eleanor Ashton and Rebecca May, who have ten and seven goals respectively. Charlotte Steggles will be another threat for the Grecians to minimalise, the impressive midfielder joining from neighbours Nottingham Forest in the Summer and already imposing her talent in Griffiths’ side. 

Abbie Britton and Aaron Wakley’s side will be keen to test themselves against higher division opponents for a fourth time this season, City no doubt enjoying the role of underdogs when the pressure in league fixtures is an unrelenting necessity to win every game. In what is arguably one of the biggest games in the team’s history, a faultless Grecians performance will give them the opportunity to test County and gain a place in a National Final for the first time.
