Hampshire FA can confirm that we have received notice of withdrawal from Southampton FC Women from the Women’s Senior Cup which will now be considered by our appointed Competitions Sub Group in due course.
For clarification, the Final versus Portsmouth FC was due to be played on Wednesday, 30 March 2022 at Eastleigh FC.
Southampton FC Women gave notice that this fixture clashed with a FA Women’s National League Southern Premier Division fixture away to Crawley Wasps FC.
We had positive dialogue with representatives of The FA Women’s National League who agreed to postpone the league fixture to enable the final to be played.
We will make further comment on revised arrangements for the final at the earliest possible opportunity.
