Sunday's final proves the second game in a monumental week for Marieanne Spacey-Cale's side, having secured the National League Southern Premier title on Wednesday night.

Sophia Pharoah's stunner started Saints on their way just shy of the break, before the clinical Lucia Kendall scored the decisive second immediately after the interval.

They will face Northern Premier Division side Huddersfield Town, who currently sit fourth in the standings with 43 points; 12 points off of the side Saints will face in the National League play-off in May, Wolves.

Their last outing came on Sunday, an entertaining 2-2 draw at home to Loughborough Lightning at Stafflex Arena. Katie Stanley and Mia Parry with the goals for Town.

MANAGER'S NOTES

"We'll apply ourselves to this game like we do every other," said Spacey-Cale. "It's really important that we don't look to far ahead to the play-off after Wednesday because we've got important games like Sunday's left to play.

"Huddersfield are a talented side and it will be a good test for us to play a northern division team, especially with a piece of silverware at stake.

"We're really delighted with the work the girls have put in during this competition this season, now it's a big opportunity for them.

"The fans were amazing the other night and they really spur us on. It felt like there were more than five thousand or so in there. We'd love to see them there cheering us on again on Sunday like they have done all season."
