Beth in League Cup semi-final

HINDERWELL’S Beth Mead is hoping to be wearing her shooting boots on Sunday (22 Apr) as her Sunderland ladies side take on Blackburn Rovers in the semi-final of the League Cup.

Sixteen-year-old Beth grabbed her 26th goal of the campaign in the last round against Aston Villa and has managed to shake off a knee injury which saw her substituted in that match.

Sunday’s game is being played at the Hetton Centre, Hetton-le-Hole, 2pm kick-off.
