Liverpool v Doncaster Rovers Belles
 Women's Football News 27 Mar 2011
 
F.A.Women's Cup - Road to the Final
Liverpool swept into the quarter finals with a 5-0 victory over Charlton Athletic and they have landed the round's only all-WSL tie against Doncaster Rovers Belles, who edged past Chelsea with a solitary goal from Vicky Exley.
 
Doncaster Belles were originally formed in 1969 as the Belle Vue Belles by young women who were selling draw tickets on the terraces at Doncaster Rovers. They started out by playing local small sided games but within a short period of time they found themselves venturing outside of Doncaster and in 1971 changed their name to Doncaster Belles.
 
In 1991-92 they became founder members of the National League and won the League and FA Cup double in the first season without losing a game. They have won the double once more and have finished as league runners-up four times to establish themselves as one of the major names in women's football.
 
In 2005 they formalised a partnership link with Doncaster Rovers which enabled them to play a number of games at Belle Vue and use the excellent training facilities at Cantley Park. This meant them changing their name to Doncaster Rovers Belles.
 
Many well known players have been with the club over the years including Gill Coultard, England's most capped player, and Karen Walker, but one name synonymous with the club is Sheila Edmunds.
 
Manager John Buckley has been busy making new signings ahead of the new season in the FA WSL, including Katie Holtham who will be captain. Vicky Exley, who scored the winner in the last round, has been a long time stalwart in the Belles midfield.
 
With two squads which have been rebuilt over the past few months, this is a tough game to call but, with only four WSL clubs left in the competition, it presents a great chance for either club to make serious progress to the later stages.
 
Liverpool (from): Andrea Worrall, Carmel Bennett, Katie Brusell, Sam Chappell, Caroline Charlton, Michelle Evans, Cheryl Foster, Nicky Harding, Kelly Jones, Vicky Jones, Suzanne Lappin, Ruesha Littlejohn, Natalie Sage, Lynda Shepherd, Megan Sneddon, Jo Traynor, Nikki Twohig, Gemma Watson.

Doncaster Rovers Belles (from): Helen Alderson, Lyndsey Cunningham, Katie Holtham, Amy Turner, Maria Karlsson, Becky Hall, Vicky Exley, Aine O'Gorman, Precious Hamilton, Kasia Lipka, Kylla Sjoman, Tori Williams, Naomi Chadwick, Sarah Owen, Millie Bright.
