Classic Highlights: A first Continental Cup triumph!

Manchester City claimed a first piece of silverware as a professional side on this day with a 1-0 win over Arsenal in the FA Women’s Continental Tyres Cup back in 2014.

Izzy Christiansen’s close-range header with 20 to play was enough to get the better of the Gunners at Wycombe’s Adams Park, as City rounded off a debut Women’s Super League campaign in style.

Arsenal, who had claimed all three Conti Cup titles prior to our showdown in 2014, went particularly close through Rachel Yankey and Danielle Carter, but weren’t able to break City’s resistance.

City have been the most successful side in the competition since victory on this day seven years ago, going on to claim a further two titles in 2016 and 2019 respectively.

And we also got off to a dream start in this season's tournament, earning a deserved 5-1 victory over Everton in the group stages on Wednesday evening.

Four members of the side to claim our first piece of silverware remain in Gareth Taylor’s squad, with Karen Bardsley, Steph Houghton, Keira Walsh and Jill Scott all starting at Adams Park.

Another current City star, Ellen White, can also be heard as part of the commentary team covering our historic triumph.
