Dorking Wanderers vs Clapton CFC preview: Tough ask for women’s first team in Capital Cup final

Haringey Borough. Biggleswade United. Bedford Town. Hounslow. Sutton United…

In a season of amazing cup upsets, the Clapton CFC women’s first team are looking to add one more name to the list in the Capital Women’s Cup final.

It’s going to be a tough task. Dorking Wanderers have home advantage and they are a division higher. They also have George Best’s son in charge and even a BBC3 film crew following them… 

But this team never gives up, and they’ll be doing everything they can to add some more silverware to the cabinet. Come along and cheer them on! 

The Capital Women’s Cup is a prestigious competition for teams at our level and one higher across the counties in and around Greater London.

We’ve beaten Sutton United, Sutton United U23s and Regents Park Rangers to reach the final following on from a walkover win over Whyteleafe Development.

Newly formed in 2020, the Dorking Wanderers FC Ladies team currently compete at Tier 6 in the London & South East Regional Women’s League, Division 1 North, one level higher than CCFC.

In their first season they achieved promotion from the South East Counties Women’s League (Tier 7) and were finalists in the Capital Women’s Cup, losing on penalties.
