Rothwell Ladies manager John Shirt is looking forward to the challenge when his side meet Newcastle Utd in the F.A.Women's Cup on Sunday.
The North East League side play host to their Northern Combination opponents and manager Shirt told Women's Soccer Scene: "This is the first season we have entered the FA Cup and we are delighted to have had two good results so far and reached the Third Round Qualifying. We are privileged to have been drawn against Newcastle United who are probably the biggest club involved in the competition at this stage."
Both teams are currently in second place in their respective divisions - Newcastle are two tiers higher - and both sides are currently in good form.
"We go into this game as massive underdogs but the FA Cup does have a habit of throwing up unexpected results and we will be hoping to maintain this tradition," added Shirt.
"Whatever the result, we hope that the game will provide an entertaining spectacle and trust that the players, officials and supporters of Newcastle have a safe journey and an enjoyable day."
Rothwell captain Rachel Hepton said: "Sunday's FA Cup fixture is the biggest game Rothwell Ladies have faced to date. The players are excited and determined to put on a good performance against Newcastle. Even though we are seen as the underdogs in this fixture, we believe we will give good competition with our team spirit and desire to win. We all look forward to this game and hope to gain some valuable experience."
