Bradford City sealed the West Riding County FA Women’s Cup with a confident 3-1 win over arch-rivals Leeds United at Woodlesford.

Steve Winterburn’s side were in front after seven minutes when the Leeds keeper failed to gather a free-kick and Chantelle O’Hara forced the ball home.

Molly Sharpe doubled the lead after 15 minutes and it remained 2-0 until half-time.

Leeds then struck first after the break to get themselves back into the game but City were undaunted.

Sarah Danby, alert to hesitancy in the opposition defence, ran on to a loose ball and slipped it past the advancing keeper to seal the victory.
