Hampshire Cup Final Preview: Southampton v Pompey Women

South coast rivals meet at Westleigh Park

19 May 2021

Hampshire Cup final

Pompey Women will be hoping to lift some silverware when they take on Southampton at Westleigh Park this evening (8pm kick-off).

It is the final of last season’s Hampshire Cup, with the match having being delayed because of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The south coast rivals last met in this competition back in January 2019, with goals from Shannon Albuery and Alex Collighan seeing the Blues battle from behind to emerge triumphant.

There was also a clash in the 2018 final, when Albuery netted a hat-trick in a 5-0 rout, while Rachel Panting and Daisy McLachlan were also on target.

And that result ensured that the Blues were able to lift the trophy for an impressive 10th season in succession.

But it was Southampton who came out on top in the most recent contest, winning 2-0 to progress in the League Cup last year.

The Blues have not been in competitive action since they faced Cheltenham at the same venue in the FA Cup on Easter Sunday.

Their Hampshire opponents, meanwhile, were beaten by Birmingham at the weekend to halt their path to Wembley.

Supporters who have not purchased tickets in advance can pay on the gates – which open from 7pm – at Westleigh Park this evening.

They are priced £10 for adults, £5 for seniors (65+) and juniors (10-16), with free entry for children aged nine and under.

If you are unable to make it, the game will be streamed live on the Hampshire FA YouTube channel.

If you have purchased tickets online, please enter via the turnstiles at the front of the ground, located to the right of the club car park.

Please note that supporters do not need to show a ticket upon entry, they can just provide the name of the person who purchased tickets.

If you are buying tickets on the night, please use the turnstiles on the side of the ground, next to the Westleigh pub. Supporters can use cash or contactless payment.

There will be a ‘crowd funnelling’ system in place at Westleigh Park for those who have purchased tickets online.

Your temperature will be checked before you can enter the funnel and you will be granted access if your temperature is in line with the recommended guidance.

There will be NHS Test and Trace QR codes around the ground and supporters are advised to 'check in' upon arrival.

Supporters should also wear a mask upon arrival and keep it on in indoor areas, while hand sanitiser stations are located in the stands.
