Match Preview: AFC Bournemouth v Pompey Women

Blues in Hampshire Cup action

17 November 2023

Pompey Women are back on the road on Sunday as they take on AFC Bournemouth in the Hampshire Cup (2pm kick-off).

The Blues come into the game on the back of a comprehensive 9-1 victory over Fulham in the FA Cup last weekend.

Beth Lumsden netted a hat-trick, with Emma Jones and Sophie Quirk each bagging a brace, while Ava Rowbotham and Ella Humphrey were also on the scoresheet at Motspur Park.

Both Pompey and the Cherries are entering the Hampshire Cup at the second round stage of the competition.

Jay Sadler's side won their 13th consecutive title in 2022, beating their next opponents at the Silverlake Stadium.

Goals from Tamsin de Bunsen, Emma Jones and Rosie McDonnell sealed a 3-0 victory that saw the silverware retained.

But Blues' long grip of the trophy came to an end at the hands of Bournemouth in the semi-finals last term.

Molly Clark's strike was enough to secure progress for the Cherries, who went on to be crowned champions after beating Southampton's under-23 side at Fratton Park.

Bournemouth currently sit top of the National League South West Division One standings – one level below Pompey – having not dropped a single point so far this season.

The game takes place at Ringwood Town's Long Lane (BH24 3BX). Tickets for the clash can be purchased at the turnstiles.

Supporters at home can keep up to date with the action via the club's social media accounts.

There will be full coverage of the day and key match updates on Twitter (X), while photos and key information will be posted on Facebook and Instagram.

A match report will be posted on the website shortly after the final whistle, while there will be post-match reaction posted on Pompey Women's social channels.

Highlights of the contest will be available to watch the following day.
