WOMEN WANT CUP RUN

WOMEN WANT CUP RUN

The ladies kick off their F.A. Cup campaign in the Fourth Round of the F.A. Women's Cup on Sunday, with a home tie against Southern Division side Langford.

There is everything to play for in this competition, particularly as the Football Association have more than trebled the prize fund available to clubs, to coincide with its tenth year anniversary of governing the women's game. The eventual winners will walk away with a combined pot of just over £10,000. This is a staggering amount seeing as last year's victors, Fulham, took home £2,950.

The F.A. has decided to increase the prize fund to further the future investment into the grassroots of the senior women's game, and also to recognise the growing importance of the competition.

A record 206 teams entered the F.A. Women's Cup this season, with 112 teams competing in the First Qualifying Round on Sunday, 7 September, 2003. The Final will be screened live on BBC 1 for the third successive year, on Monday, 3 May, 2004, with a 1.00pm kick-off.

The Blues have tasted cup glory once before in their history, when they where known as Leasowe Pacific.

In 1989 they battled for the prestigious silverware and overcame Friends of Fulham (now known as Charlton Athletic, formerly Croydon) 3-2 in the first-ever televised women's final, which was played out at Old Trafford.

Mo Marley was a member of the team that day and reiterates the importance of the competition. "It is so important that you have a successful cup run. It can make or break your season. We were sent out of the League Cup, so a good extended run in this cup will do wonders for the team's morale. We intend to take it as seriously as possible".

Last season Everton reached the Quarter Final stage. They firstly saw off Bristol Rovers 4-2 and then travelled to Lincoln City.

Over two thousand people turned up to watch a cracking game at Sincil Bank. They eventually ran out 7-2 winners, but the atmosphere and the crowd was fantastic. Next up was a home tie to Fulham.

The Blues lost 4-0 and the Cottagers went on to lift the trophy by beating Doncaster Rovers Belles 2-1 in front of over 10000 people at Selhurst Park.

Should they beat Langford, the Blues will come away with £600, a 200% increase on last year's Fourth Round winnings.

The Fifth Round Draw will be made on Monday, 5 January, at Soho Square. Sunday's game will be played at Marine AFC, College Road, Crosby. Kick-off is at 12.30pm.
