Norwich City Women face Mulbarton Wanderers in the County Cup final this evening, and they can't wait for another trip to Carrow Road.

More than 7,500 fans filed into the stadium as the Canaries defeated Ashford Town 5-3 last month, and more than 2,000 have bought tickets for the final, which kicks off at 7.45pm.

Midfielder Katie Knights, who joined City from Wymondham Town last summer and has had an impressive first season with the club, said: "We're really excited. Obviously the aim is to get the trophy, so we're looking forward to it, and we'll give it everything. We're working hard in training.

"It'll feel brilliant. I think it's where Norwich City needs to be. We didn't win it last year, so we need to win the cup and cement our status as the best team in Norfolk.

"It's been amazing," she continued, speaking to official club channels. "My first year at Norwich couldn't have gone better.

"The numbers we've got at The Nest have been unbelievable and really create a brilliant atmosphere for us, so yeah, I've really enjoyed it."

Alice Parker, who scored twice and claimed an assist in that Ashford win, couldn't hide her excitement. "We had a really special season," she said. "Anyone that's followed us will know that. The Carrow Road game was something I and the team will never forget.

"It's always special being in a County Cup game. Everyone loves a County Cup game, especially when it's being held at Carrow Road, so it's a positive vibe, and we're hopefully going to end the season on a high.

"Buzzing, can't wait. Playing at that ground is really special in itself, and hopefully we can regain the County Cup trophy.

"I know how to play to my strengths. We know our targets, we know what we want to do, and hopefully we can execute that well.

"We know it's not going to be an easy game, so we need to be at our best level, and I think we will do. With how we've been training and everything, we'll put that performance in."
