Northampton Town won the Northamptonshire FA Women’s Cup with a 2-1 success over rivals Peterborough United at Steel Park on Sunday afternoon.

Eden Brown and Alex Dicks scored the Cobblers’ goals as they returned to action after three weeks without a fixture.

Joint-managers Lou Barry and Josh Oldfield made one change to the team that won away to Leicester City Ladies at the start of the month, as Abbie Brewin returned to the side.

Charlie Cooper was named on the bench having also been a long-term absentee.

The Cobblers made a perfect start, taking an early lead when Brown headed home from Leah Cudone’s free-kick.

Peterborough equalised less than a minute later, Jess Driscoll bundling in a corner.

Play stopped in the 19th minute as Cobblers’ goalscorer Brown received treatment following an aerial challenge on the halfway line. We wish her all the best in her recovery.

The game continued around 45 minutes later, with Beth Artemiou replacing Brown. The midfielder made an instant impact, her pass setting up Dicks, who found the bottom corner to restore her side’s advantage.

Peterborough started the second half on top, without managing to test Jo Daniel in the Cobblers’ goal.

That was until there was little under a quarter-of-an-hour on the clock, when Keir Perkins fired a golden opportunity just over from the edge of the area.

Cudone played a fantastic ball across goal as the Cobblers looked to seal the trophy in added time, but substitute Cooper was unable to get on the end of it at the back post.

It did not matter, however, as they saw out a deserved, hard-fought win.

Barry and Oldfield’s side travel to fourth-placed Mansfield Town on Tuesday night, as the East Midlands Women’s Regional Football League Premier Division run-in begins.

The Cobblers sit seven points behind Chesterfield with five games in hand on the league leaders as it stands.
