DESPITE being in just their second season, March Town Ladies Football Club will play their second cup semi-final in the space of a week on Sunday.

They face Blackstones, from Stamford, in the semi-final of the League Cup.

The match will be played at Wisbech St Mary's ground and kicks off at 2pm.

March were beaten 2-0 in the semi-final of the Cambs Invitation Cup by Newmarket Town on Sunday.

Newmarket went ahead after 20 minutes after a goal-mouth scramble and doubled their lead 10 minutes into the second half after some good build up play.

March manager Simon Laws said: "We put in a pretty decent performance and created some chances but the Newmarket team has been together for a lot longer than we have and that showed a bit in the end."

The March club was formed by Tylo Pearce and played their first season last year, during which they won the Fenland Ladies League Cup and finished fourth in the Fenland and District Youth League.

Laws took over as manager during this season.

Laws said: "The girls had played together in junior football and after playing in an under-18s team they wanted to keep going. They realised there were no senior girls' football teams in March so decided to set up their own.

We have a squad of 17 players but we are often struggling to get a side together because players have work commitments.

"Anyone interested in joining us can come and watch us on Sunday or just turn up to training at the GER Ground on Tuesday nights, from 7-8.30pm"

March Town Ladies are also looking for sponsorship.

Anyone interested should contact Mr Laws on 07527 216293.
