West Ham women reach the FA Cup final
Sunday was an important day for West Ham Women.
The Hammers reached the Women’s FA Cup Cup after a penalty shootout win over Reading.
After 90 minutes, the match was level at 1-1.
Eventually penalties were needed to split the sides, with West Ham winning the shootout 4-3.
South Korean captain Cho So-hyun scored the winning penalty for the Irons.
😀 Smile like you’re about to send @westhamwomen to Wembley!

Southampton men vs Man City women
West Ham fans now face a difficult choice.
The Women’s FA Cup final has been scheduled on the same day as the penultimate weekend of the Premier League season.
Should fans see West Ham take on Man City’s Women in the showpiece at Wembley?
Or should they go to the London Stadium for the league match against Southampton?
West Ham screwed by scheduling
Hammers fans upset by the choice their facing have turned to social media to complain.
Such a shambles that the Women’s FA Cup final has been scheduled for the same day as the last home game of the season against Southampton at London Stadium. Still, absolutely fantastic achievement by @westhamwomen in their first season as a pro outfit.

Correct. Shambolic scheduling. I am tempted to miss the men’s match and head to Wembley, I must say.

Surely they cant let the Women FA Cup game and West Ham home game v Southampton clash? Surely something must change
