Cheadle Town 1-2 Tranmere Rovers Women

14 September 2023

Tranmere Rovers Women make history by becoming the first Women’s Super Cup Winners after a 2-1 victory over Cheadle Town.

On Wednesday evening, Tranmere Rovers Women added another prestigious trophy to their collection, overcoming the determined challenge of Cheadle Town Stingers. Lindsey Smith emerged as the hero, scoring two crucial goals that ultimately made the difference.

In the early stages of the match, Cheadle Town asserted their dominance, putting Tranmere's goalkeeper, Size, to the test with some spectacular saves.

Tranmere Rovers gradually found their rhythm, displaying delightful football, but like their opponents, they struggled to break the deadlock.

The tightly contested first half took a dramatic turn when Tranmere was awarded a free-kick. Robinson expertly delivered it into the box, where Smith, amidst a wall of defenders, managed to control the ball, bring it down, and skillfully send it into the net.

The second half witnessed Tranmere Rovers Women maintaining their momentum and creating numerous scoring opportunities. 

Once again, it was Smith who stole the spotlight. She seized the ball in the midfield, charged forward, and unleashed a thunderous shot from 25 yards out. The ball struck the crossbar before finding the back of the net, doubling Rovers' lead.

Cheadle Town managed to pull one goal back shortly afterward, as a long-range effort bounced awkwardly past Size. However, this setback didn't deter Rovers, who continued to press forward and displayed a resolute team defence.

As the minutes ticked away, the referee signalled the end of the match, and Tranmere Rovers Women made history by being crowned the inaugural Women's Super Cup champions.

Looking ahead, Tranmere Rovers Women will return to league action with a challenging fixture against undefeated Darwen FC at Ellesmere Port Sports Village on Sunday, September 17th, with kickoff scheduled for 2pm.
