1971 to 1982
A member of the Southampton team who won the first Women's FA Cup in 1971 is hoping to find the missing trophy for the National Football Museum.
The trophy is thought to have been lost in the late 1970s, with a new version introduced for later competitions.
Sue Lopez was in the side which beat Scottish club Stewarton & Thistle 4-1 to win the-then Mitre Challenge Trophy.
"We hope it's still around. I'm on a mission for the National Football Museum to try and find the original so that the museum can have it."
Southampton won eight of the first 11 Women's FA Cup finals, but it is not known whether the trophy is with one of the Saints players.Nearly 70 teams from England and Wales entered the competition in 1976. Four regional groups were drawn to play to decide the semi finalists which were Southampton v Brighton and Hove Albion, Queens Park Rangers v Belle Vue Belles.
They were Dean Trophy Winners in 1975/76, 1976/77 and 1977/78 and were also Salvidge Youth Cup Winners in 1977/78.
In 1977/78 and 1980/81, Exeter reached the final of the Pat Sowden Trophy, but lost both finals.
In 5 a-side Exeter won the Heavitree 5's in 1980, having won the Dawlish 5's in 1979. They reached the final of the Pelynt 5's in 1980 and the Heavitree 5's in 1981. In 1982 they were finalists in the Crewe and Western League 5's.
