Preview: Abingdon United Women

Dons Women set sights on silverware…

17 March 2023

MK Dons prepare to face Abingdon United in the Senior Women’s Berks & Bucks FA County Cup final in the hope to bring back silverware to Stadium MK.

Having eliminated Chesham United Women, Penn & Tylers Green Ladies and Reading Women in the rounds prior, the Dons now face just one more obstacle before they can lift the County Cup trophy.
Last season, Charlie Bill’s Women fell short within the second-round of this competition. Alternatively, the current campaign could see a redemption which would be rewarded with silverware if MK Dons were to triumph over Abingdon.
The Milton Keynes based team have conjured a total of 31 goals in the previous three rounds of the tournament. 17-0 was their most substantial score-line, which was displayed at Fairfields Sports Hub against Penn & Tylers.

Charlie Bill and his side will want to draw from their recent successes within the knockout stages of the Berks & Bucks County Cup to reach their goal of the spoils that await the victor.
This fixture will be played at Chesham United Football Club, The Meadow, Amy Lane, Chesham, HP5 1NE.
Tickets for this tie will only be available on the day through card payments alone. Tickets will be priced at £5 per adult and £2 for Under-16s.

Abbingdon United compete within the Premier Division of the Women’s Southern Region, which is the sixth tier in the Women’s Football League. Although they’re three tiers below MK Dons, Abingdon seem no easy opponent whilst they currently place atop their league table.
During the current campaign, United have collected a total of 36 points from 12 wins whilst two losses amount the 14 league fixtures played so far.
The sixth-tier side have battled their way through Caversham United, Maidenhead United, as well as a first-round walkover to reach the final stage of the tournament.

Within the Senior Women’s Berks & Bucks County Cup, MK Dons faced Reading Under-23s in the semi-final stage of the competition, who were the same team that eliminated the Dons a year prior.

However, this time around, Charlie Bill’s Women claimed the revenge they sought out for in their 3-0 triumph over the Royals at Fairfields Sports Hub.
Abingdon faced Maidenhead United in the final four teams that battled to take one step closer to the trophy. A narrow contest saw a 2-2 score-line at the conclusion of 90 minutes.

The match was then decided via a penalty shoot-out, which similar to the 90-minute contest, was a close affair. Abingdon raised as victors when they netted all five of their penalties whilst Maidenhead could only convert four.

MK Dons Women lifted the Berks and Bucks FA Senior Women’s Cup for a sixth time following a 3-0 victory over Abingdon United.

Charlie Bill’s side produced a superb performance in their Final at the Meadow and secured the silverware would be returning to Milton Keynes thanks to Laura Mitchell’s brace and a second-half goal from top-scorer Mollie Coupar.

Mitchell was back in the starting XI as Charlie Bill made three changes to his side from their midweek defeat to Oxford United in the FAWNL Southern Premier Division. Angelina Nixon and Hannah Samuels were the other additions to the team.

Bill’s alterations made an early impact too, as MITCHELL opened the scoring on 22 minutes, showing great alertness to pounce on Nicola Puddick’s saved shot and fire home the rebound. 1-0.


The Dons maintained their one-goal lead through until half-time and survived an early scare at the start of the second thanks to some terrific goalkeeping from Chloe Sansom.

Bill’s team wanted a second goal to make the game safe and they found it with a little under a quarter of an hour left to play - MITCHELL, again, on the scoresheet, this time finding the net with a header from Tally Miles' corner. 2-0.

The Dons then settled any nerves by scoring a third with three minutes left to play. Mitchell turned provider this time to set away top scorer COUPAR, who got across her defender and beat the goalkeeper one-on-one. 3-0.


Speaking to afterwards, manager Charlie Bill said: “I’m extremely proud and really pleased for the group. We’ve got to enjoy these memories and, for this young group, hopefully this is just the start.

“It wasn’t our best performance or most complete performance but the key thing in finals is that you produce in the key moments. It wasn’t the perfect performance but we won the game 3-0 and we’ve won the cup.

“Abingdon were fantastic and gave us a really good game but we kept doing the right things. Second half, we were relentless and got our rewards later on.”

Bill added: “One of our targets this season was to win this cup having not done that last year. Everyone can be really proud of themselves and we can enjoy this Sunday a little more than usual.”
