Harvey’s side got off to a perfect start, going into the break 2-0 up agains the WSL runners-up thanks to Ellen White and captain Jayne Ludlow netting within a minute of each other at Burton Albion’s stadium.

2012: 1-0 v Birmingham City

Another year, another final for Arsenal Ladies, and it was a rematch against a Birmingham City side looking for revenge.

With the sides again making up the top two in the WSL and each having won a trophy, the game was a lot closer this time around and Emma Byrne needed to be on top form to deny Eni Aluko.

The game was poised going into the last eight minutes and it took a moment of magic from Kim Little to break the deadlock at Underhill. Scotland’s leading scorer cut inside before unleashing a fierce drive past former Gunner Rebecca Spencer to help her side retain the trophy.
