Town Women inn Women’s FA Cup action

Huddersfield Town Women kick start their Vitality Women’s FA Cup campaign on Sunday 14 November 2021 as they welcome North West Women’s Regional League Division One North side Sir Tom Finney FC in the First Round.
Coming fresh off their 3-2 win against Middlesbrough Women in the League Cup, Huddersfield will be hoping to continue their winning momentum in cup competitions. However, their opponents will be looking to cause an upset after progressing into the first-round proper for the first time in their history.
The Preston based side entered the competition in the second round qualifying where they beat fellow sixth tier side Marine 6-1. The following round saw Sir Tom Finney FC automatically progress due to fourth tier side Bolton Ladies withdrawing from the competition.
Meanwhile in the league, Town’s opponents sit in tenth place after playing five games – their only win coming in October against Morecambe Ladies Reserves. As for Huddersfield they sit in fourth place, three divisions above.
It was a year to remember for Town last season, as the club equalled their best performance in the competition when they reached the fifth round. Town’s journey was surrounded by the third national lockdown which suspended play and led to the league being curtailed.
Town faced lower league opposition twice last year (Liverpool Feds & Brighouse Town), with both games going to extra time. However, following beating league rivals Derby County in the fourth round, the Terriers set up a dream FA Cup tie away to Women’s Super League side Brighton & Hove Albion.
Assistant Manager, Danny Alogba reflects on how special the FA Cup is for football.
“Cup games are vital for us, and the FA Cup is a fantastic competition to be involved in.
“As a team we’re looking forward to building on the momentum from our previous game.”
“You can see from the previous winners of the competition the size of the clubs involved just how big the FA Cup is and how much it means to the fans and players alike.
“The chance to be able to compete against the best nationally from all steps is something the club will relish.”
