The women’s first team may be out of the FA Cup despite that record-smashing run to the third round – but there’s still two cups to play for.
So hold on to your tinfoil cup for a while yet.
Capital Women’s Intermediate Cup
This is the county cup for teams in tier 6 or tier 7 (our level) in the Greater London area, whether affiliated to the Amateur FA, London FA, Middlesex FA or Surrey FA.
We’ve reached the semi-final thanks to wins over Whyteleafe Development, Regents Park Rangers and Sutton United U23.
Second round: Clapton CFC vs Whyteleafe Development home walkover
Third round: Clapton CFC 6 Regents Park Rangers 1
Quarter-final: Sutton United Women U23 1 Clapton CFC 1 (2-4 on pens)
Semi-final: Clapton CFC vs Sutton United – March 20
Last season, we were knocked out at away at Leyton Orient Reserves and the season before Leyton Orient Development.
John Greenacre Memorial Trophy
This is the league cup competition, for teams in our own Greater London Women’s Football League Premier Division and in the two First Divisions, one step lower at tier 8.
We’re currently at the third round stage although we’ve yet to actually play a game.
Second round: South East Parakeets vs Clapton CFC away walkover
Third round: Clapton CFC 3 Queens Park Rangers Reserves 3 – 3-4 on pens
The last time we played in the tournament, we fell at the first hurdle with a 1-0 defeat at higher division Clapham.
