Blackpool Wren Rovers have enjoyed some Cup runs in recent years but Sunday gives them the opportunity to take on Combination opposition in their delayed First Round tie.
The North West League Division One North side will play at home to Mossley Hill, of the Northern Combination, this week after the tie was originally postponed due to bad weather in the area.
Mossley Hill had a great Cup run themselves last season, getting as far as the Third Round, but Rovers are eagerly anticipating the chance to take on higher league opposition.
"The team are looking forward to playing Mossley Hill as it will be a good test to play against a team from a higher league," manager Sam Wilcock told Women's Soccer Scene. "We have had a good start to the season and a good cup run in both FA and Lancashire County Cups so we hope to continue this.
"We know it will be tough but as we are the underdogs, we have nothing to lose and can go out there and enjoy the game as there is no pressure on us.
Rovers captain, Caroline Wilcock added: "We last played against Mossley Hill a few seasons ago and I remember it well because it was a close, competitive match in which I scored the winner (4-3) in the dying minutes with my left foot from 30 yards....and that does not happen often!!"
