The Hammers’ captain would love to meet her old side at Wembley in May but first comes the semi-final with Reading
West Ham have had a rollercoaster season, from piecing together a team in a matter of weeks and launching themselves into the top tier to looking as if their campaign had run out of track with 10 goals conceded in four January defeats. Now, however, they sit one win away from the most prestigious game in the women’s football calendar.
Their manager, Matt Beard, says reaching the FA Cup final at Wembley on 4 May would be a “fairytale ending” but there is the little matter of Sunday’s semi-final at Reading first. What is more, the Hammers’ defeat at Manchester United in the Continental League Cup quarter-finals has instilled caution at the London club. “That night we didn’t really turn up and we can use that experience to make sure it doesn’t happen again,” says Beard.
