ARSENAL Ladies goalie Emma Byrne is hoping to pick up the 10th Premier League Cup in her club's history next week.
The team will take on Doncaster Rovers Belles in the final of the FA Tesco FA Women's Premier League on Thursday at the Glanford Stadium, home of Scunthorpe United.
Emma, from Shenley, will be making her fifth consecutive appearance in the final of the league and if the team win it will be the 10th time in the club's 21-year-history.
Speaking ahead of the fixture, Emma said: "We're looking forward to our trip to Scunthorpe United when we will take on Doncaster. They always give us a good game and we're sure this final won't be any different. I hope many of our supporters, and football fans generally, will come and pitch their support - it's always great to have plenty of cheers behind us for big games such as this one."
