Ladies suffer cup exit

West Ham United Ladies suffered a disappointing exit from the London FA Capital Cup on Sunday when they were defeated by KIKK United.

The Hammers were below par in a game made difficult by the rain and blustery wind, and the size of their task became clear when a deflected shot put the hosts in front on 20 minutes.

KIKK extended their lead on 43 minutes which a shot which crept in under the crossbar, although the Hammers gave themselves hope by reducing the deficit just before the interval thanks to a fantastic strike from Sarah McCrea.

Her left-footed drive from the edge of the box gave the home keeper no chance, but West Ham were unable to move on from there as KIKK pushed them back at the start of the second period.

The hosts scored two further goals to make it 4-1, meaning Stacey Little's late header counted for little as the Hammers crashed out of the cup.

West Ham United Ladies: Lauren Picton, Sophie Reed, Katie Sorenson, Danica Revell, Emily Masters (Olivia Sammons 46), Abbie Solly, Lily Mellors, Stacey Little, Katie Bottom, Zoe Lipley-Hinton, Sarah McCrea
Subs (not used): Faye Picton
