Women's Final

City of Sheffield Hatters v UWIC Archers
Sunday 29 January, Ponds Forge, Sheffield, 1:15pm




UWIC Archers and City of Sheffield Hatters meet for the second time in a Women's National Cup final on Sunday at Ponds Forge International Sports Centre, tip-off 1:15.


UWIC will be looking to take National Cup honours for the first time on Sunday and also become the first club, other than Sheffield Hatters or Rhondda Rebels, to the win this women's competition since 1998. Thames Valley Tigers defeated Hatters in the '98 Cup Final at Sheffield Arena, and since then the title has been won by either the Yorkshire side or the now defunct Rebels. Also, impressively, for the past 22 years Sheffield have won 14 National Cups and appeared in all but two finals.


As intimidating as this may be for someone entering a final against Sheffield, the book may favour Archers in this match-up as they are the current league leaders, with a perfect 10-0 record, and this also includes a league win against Hatters in December.


'As I have said all along, you have no rights to dream of silverware if you don't make finals!' said Archers coach Damian Jennings.


Indeed Archers have made several finals in recent seasons but other than the 2010 playoff final when they defeated Sheffield 56-52, the Welsh club have been forced into a runner-up position by Hatters.


Sheffield is arguably having their worst season for years with three losses already including a forfeit against Nottingham Wildcats for not having their licence cards. However, head coach Vanessa Ellis is ready for things to turn around this weekend against UWIC:


'We've had a couple of tough weeks and it would be nice to win something to improve people's morale,' she said. 'We're really looking forward to playing a Cup final in Sheffield against our rivals and take home the first trophy of the season.'


The teams head into the final with a couple of injury worries, but with their roster depth that includes several Great Britain players, there will be plenty of talent on display. British players Rose Anderson and Stefanie Collins (174-G-82, college: St.Bonaventure) are nursing injury problems for UWIC and ex-New Zealand international Charmian Purcell is out with a knee injury for Hatters.


'We may be slightly under the cosh with two key players not 100% fit, but the response from our rotation this week in training has been excellent,' said Jennings. 'We did not perform well on the road last weekend, but still managed to secure wins - again I think this highlights the resolve and ambition of not just our leadership group but the ambition of our bench toward the success of this team.


'I have no doubt that whichever unit is fit to play for us we will be looking to perform at a level that ensures we create a chance for something special.'


Among the cast of British players competing Sunday is Hatters guard Sarah Naylor (183-F-83), who is eager to play against their rivals:


'Both the team and I are really excited about playing in another Cup final,' she said. 'Although it's always a tough game against UWIC I think that if we play as well as I know we can, we can come away with a good result.'


Naylor has been one of the league's top shooters in recent years and this season is third in three-point percentage (45%) and shares the top spot from the free throw line with UWIC's Collins (96%).


The top ranked statistical player in Division 1 is also a Hatter and a British potential, Stephanie Gandy. The American-born forward is the league's top scorer (22.8 points per game) and shoots nearly 60% from the floor. Other players to watch out for from Sheffield include another Naylor, Helen, as well as Lauren Thomas-Johnson, Jo Clayden and point guard Lisa Hutchinson - all of whom are national team players.


UWIC is also heavily stacked with British talent apart from the previously mentioned guards Collins and Anderson. Meagan Hoffman (183-F-82, college: Adams St.), Hannah Shaw and Kate Butters all have experience with Great Britain and younger players Francesca Whitby and Kristie Sheils are performing well under the tutelage of Jennings' coaching staff.


The international experience between these teams is not confined to the players, however, with Ellis and Jennings both assistant coaches for Great Britain's Senior Women and Jennings is also the head coach for the Under 20 team.


UWIC and Sheffield met in the 2009 National Cup final and Hatters came out 76-59 winners, their first of three consecutive since that time.
