First Team – Vitality FA Womens Cup 1st Round Preview…

This Sunday 20th December our First Team will play away to League Rivals Kent Football United in the first round proper of the Vitality Women’s FA Cup where A victory for the Ladies will send them into the second round for the first time since 2014.

The ladies have had a strong start to the season having lost only game in all competitions this season, which came in the very first game of the season away to AFC Wimbledon conceding a winning goal in the 96th minute.

The last meeting between the two sides ended in a 1-1 draw back in October at the QE with both teams failing to take their chances.

Manager Billy Highton says ‘ The tickets sold out very quickly so we’re expecting a great little atmosphere. Having played Kent already this season we know they will be tough opposition, but we go there on a good run of form so we are looking forward to it.’

The ladies secured their place in the First round proper with a hard fought 2-1 win away at Luton Town FC, whilst Kent Football United overcame league rivals AFC Wimbledon in the last round by the same scoreline.

An away trip to the Sussex coast awaits the winners at Southern Premier League Side Chichester & Selsey Ladies on Sunday 3rd January 2020.
