Edgware Town vs Clapton CFC preview: Back to league action for women’s first team

Clapton CFC’s women’s first team return to league action after the highs of another Women’s FA Cup win at higher league opposition.

It was another magical occasion with 150 to 200 away fans making the trip up to Biggleswade United to see the Tons win it with second half goals from Emily Link and Marta Boiro.

After the last cupset, however, the team understandably struggled to replicate the same intensity in the next league game and could only scramble a draw at home against Headstone Manor.

The Greater London Women’s Football League Premier Division table is incredibly tight, and Edgware Town are one of five clubs separated by a point just below us.

Having been promoted alongside Headstone, Bromley, Sutton United U23 and Walton Casuals Reserves, Edgware have adjusted well to the next level up.

In fact they’ve been scoring for fun, with Polina Avramova hitting six goals in five games, Kalina Georgieva four in four and Monique Mitchell-Marshall four in five.

This isn’t our first meeting with Edgware. In March 2020 we played them in the friendly at Chobham Academy, winning 2-1, just before Coronavirus lockdown.
