Jordan Nobbs scored twice as Arsenal ladies lifted the Continental Tyres Cup – their fourth success in five years.

Nobbs scored twice in the first half at Rotherham United’s New York Stadium, with Chioma Ubogagu’s late strike completing a 3-0 win over Notts County.

Speaking the thefa.com, London Colney’s Nobbs said the win was vital for the club.

She said: “It was disappointing to finish third in the league so to win that trophy was crucial to us.

“We need to make sure we’re not coming third in the league again next year.
