Lincoln United WFC will host Millmoor Junior LFC in the Vitality Women’s FA Cup third qualifying round. A win on Sunday will see ‘The Whites’ go through to the first-round proper, making history for the club.
Reaching the third qualifying round has already put the team in unprecedented territory, with it being the furthest they’ve progressed in the cup.
Manager Chris Funnell said: “People will say we’ve only won one game and now we’ve made club history. I don’t care. We had to win. Now we’ve gone the furthest we’ve ever been in the competition. We want to win again and play in the first-round proper of the Women’s FA Cup.”
Millmoor Junior are a side ‘The Whites’ are unfamiliar with. Playing in the step below Lincoln United, Chris understood his team are expected to win. “We go in as favourites. We thoroughly believe in our squad and our ability to impose ourselves on the opposition. We want to make them deal with us.”
‘The Whites’ have several injured players returning but are still missing three goalkeepers. Prolific scorer Tracey Duxbury-Mead returns from her knee injury, with Lucy Farrow and Katie Davison also returning. In an injury riddled season, this will be the healthiest ‘The Whites’ have been.
Kick off is at 2pm from Ashby Avenue.
