Victorious in the Ryman Cup, runners-up in the Capital Cup, the ladies are now all set for the FA Women's Premier League Cup Final at Kidderminster Harriers FC.

Known as the 'national cup', the competition brings together the Northern and Southern Divisions of the FAWPL.

It has been a target for the team since day one and now, nine months later, the day has arrived.

"We said in pre-season that we wanted silverware this season and this was the most prestigious trophy we could realistically win, taking away the FA Cup," said manager Karen Hills.

"We did so well last season but didn't have silverware to show for it and that was a driving force this season.

"It meant so much to the players to win the Ryman Cup and we then experienced the other side of emotions in the Capital Cup. That defeat hurt us and I can see a determination in the players to now go and give everything to win the League Cup.

"This is, without question, the biggest game in the club's history.

"Both myself, the staff and a lot of the players have been with us on the journey up from the South East Combination into the Premier League and then the highest-ever finish (fifth) last season, now we want to bring this trophy home."

The final kicks-off at 2pm. Look out for updates on Spurs Ladies official Twitter feed...
