THERE will certainly be a Camden connection on Sunday when Arsenal Ladies face London rivals Chelsea in the semi-finals of the FA Cup.

Blues manager Emma Hayes, who assisted Vic Akers when the Gunners won the quadruple in 2007, will have little time for sentimentality as she looks to guide Chelsea into the final.

One of the first things the former Parliament Hill School pupil did when she took over at Chelsea was to recruit TJ O’Leary (pictured with her) to help coach the team. TJ also still finds the time to coach Kentish Town FC on Saturday mornings in the Camden and Regent’s Park Youth League.

Kick off for Sunday’s semi-final showdown at Woking FC’s Kingfield Stadium is at 2pm. Tickets cost £4 adults and £1 concessions and can be bought at the ground on arrival.
