Villa Ladies were thrilled to wake up this morning as League Cup Final winners.

Joe Hunt's squad put in a monumental effort to see off the huge challenge of Leeds Ladies, who fought courageously too throughout 120 minutes of tense football.

In the end, it all came down to penalties with Megan Walsh and Carly Davies proving to be the matchwinners at York City's Bootham Crescent.

With the spot-kicks tied at 4-4 - all penalties scored - Walsh moved to her right to save the final opposition shot and set the scene for Davies, who made no mistake with hers.

Cue much merriment from the claret and blue lionesses who mobbed both Walsh and Davies in a feast of celebration.

The trophy handover was epic as Dani Petrovic got her hands on the silverware and launched it proudly into the air, flanked as she was by her thrilled team-mates.

As is the way with modern media, the team were quickly on their smartphones to tweet their delight and a selection of comments can be found below.
