Man City complete domestic cup double with Wembley win

Manchester City celebrate their SSE FA Cup Final win against West Ham United

A trio of second-half goals saw Manchester City complete a domestic cup double with a 3-0 SSE Women's FA Cup Final victory against West Ham United.

A Wembley crowd of 43,264 witnessed City add to their League Cup success from February by lifting the trophy for the second time in three years.

West Ham had initially defied their underdog status with an impressive first-half display but were eventually undone by a City side yet to concede an FA Cup goal in this year's competition.

Keira Walsh opened the scoring on 52 minutes with a bobbling shot that caught out Hammers goalkeeper Anna Moorhouse.

Fellow England international Georgia Stanway’s low strike made it 2-0 after 81 minutes before substitute Lauren Hemp added a third for City with two minutes of normal time remaining.

Victory also saw Nick Cushing's side move within one match of completing an entire domestic season unbeaten.
