After the high of FA Cup victory in front of the fans at St Mary’s last-time-out, Marieanne Spacey-Cale’s side will be looking for similar cup joy this weekend.

Their place in the quarter-final started with a 3-2 victory at Cheltenham Town in September, before Lucia Kendall’s solitary strike secured victory over league rivals Ipswich Town in November’s first round.

The second-round outing came at Snows Stadium in December, where goals from Alisha Ware and Leeta Rutherford earnt a comeback victory over MK Dons.

Hashtag’s run in the competition started with a comprehensive 7-0 victory at home to Stevenage, before the side went on to secure successive shootout victories.

First AFC Bournemouth were defeated 3-0 in November after a 0-0 stalemate, before a 2-2 draw at Chichester & Selsey saw the Tags go on to win 5-4 on penalties in the last round.

Please note that Women’s season tickets are not valid for this game as it’s a cup tie, and so must be purchased in addition.

The club advises that there is no parking available at Snows Stadium, but instead is available at the nearby Calmore Industrial Park (approximately a three-minute walk from the ground).

“This is what is important now,” said Spacey-Cale. “We won in the FA Cup on Sunday and we’re in the hat for that, which is fantastic, but this week the girls have come back in and the focus is on this next game.

“We’re still in all competitions now and we’ve still got to make sure our performances, our training, everything is spot on so that we can continue this momentum.

“The support was phenomenal last week at St Mary’s and it felt like a game that was held there every week.

“This is what we want week-in, week-out. Hopefully last weekend we’ve won some new fans for this week when we return to Snows.”
