Axminster Town Ladies play in Division 1 of the Devon Women's League, however, have had some great results in this season's Women's Supplementary Cup. They beat Division 1 leaders and last year's runners up - Budleigh Salterton Ladies on the way to the final, as well as beating 3rd placed Activate Ladies from the Premier Division. Axminster's manager, Martin Keightley will be dreaming of lifting the trophy on Friday evening.
