Leverstock Green Ladies are through to the County Cup final after seeing off Leverstock Green Ladies Whites 4-0 in an all-Leverstock encounter.

The Whites, with an average age of just 17, were kicking down the slope in the first half and dominated the opening 20 minutes of the game.

It came against the run of play when a goalkeeping spillage was snapped up by Giselle Subryan to open the lead for the senior team after 25 minutes .

The game remained an even encounter for the remainder of the half, with few further chances of note arriving before the half-time interval.

The second half began with the senior ladies on the front foot and, after a period of sustained pressure, Sally Green was given just enough room to turn and score an excellent half volley for a 2-0 advantage.

As the game wore on, the early Levy Whites efforts began to tell and the senior team began to take control of the game.

With less than eight minutes remaining, the Whites took the decision to throw caution to the wind and go three at the back.

But the gamble didn’t pay off and two late goals from Nic Hollick put the gloss on the win for the Levy Green senior side.

Whites coach Kevin Salter said: “While we are disappointed with the result, this was an excellent, committed display – giving way to a side with an average of 10 years’ more experience per player, and playing three leagues higher in the footballing pyramid.

“We must now regroup for next week’s League Cup quarter-final.”
