Manager Brad Wright said he was proud of Gainsborough Trinity Ladies for reaching a cup final in their first season.
Despite taking the lead, Trinity ladies lost the Lincolnshire Ladies’ League Cup Final 6-1 to North Lindum Hawks Ladies.
Hawks are top of the Lincolnshire County Women’s League, while Trinity are currently fourth.
Wright said: “I am proud of them. For the first 20 minutes we were outstanding, but a little blip before half-time killed the game for us.
“The scoreline has flattered them a little bit.
“In the second half we came out and gave it a go.”
Lucy Farrow, who struck Trinity’s goal, scored twice when Trinity won their semi-final against Louth Old Boys 3-2. Daniella Snowden also netted.
Trinity’s Under-18 side have enjoyed a terrific season, winning three trophies — the Lincolnshire Intermediate North League, the Lincolnshire Under-18s County Cup and the Andrew Bandelow Memorial League Cup.
Three of the clubs young players — Ryan Douglas, Joe Pettit — and Joe Edwards have been awarded their county caps after representing Lincolnshire FA.
