West Ham Ladies opened their FA Women’s Premier League Cup Campaign with a 1-1 away draw at Colchester United Ladies on Sunday.
Tracey Duxbury gave the Hammers the lead mid-way through the first half but West Ham’s league rivals hit back with a converted penalty late into the second period.
Elsewhere in the Hammers group cup holders Barnet Ladies beat Tottenham Hotspur Ladies 3-0 to go top whilst Watford Ladies didn’t play yesterday but make up the five-team group stage. West Ham face each team once over the next few months in an effort to qualify for the knock-out stages of the competition.
Next up for the Ladies is a FA Cup third round away trip to Derby County Ladies next Sunday.
