John Greenacre Trophy final preview: Clapton CFC women’s first team end season with cup final

What a season it has been…  and It’s not over just yet.

The final first team game of 2021/22 sees Enfield Town Thirds take on Clapton Community FC in the John Greenacre Memorial Trophy Final.

It’s a final chance of silverware for the women’s first team after the near misses in the league and in the Capital Women’s Cup final – not to mention the FA Cup run.

Enfield Town Thirds finished bottom of the division so you’d make CCFC the favourites, instead of our usual role as cup underdogs.


The Towners have been superb in cup games this season, winning 6 of 8 games including against division runners-up Islington Borough. So they are very much cup specialists.

Meanwhile, CCFC reached the final with wins over South East Parakeets, Queens Park Rangers Reserves, Edgware Town and Actonians Reserves.

The John Greenacre Memorial Trophy is the league cup competition, for teams in our the Greater London Women’s Football League.

It’s named after John Greenacre, who was instrumental in founding West Ham Ladies and was GLWFL fixture secretary.

Our cup final is the third of the day at Bedfont Sports. At 11am it’s an East London derby between Forest Crusaders and AFC Leyton, then at 1.30pm it’s Islington Borough against Brentford B.
