For the second season running, Enfield Town find themselves as the last representatives of the South East Combination in the F.A.Women's Cup and in the last 24 clubs.
Last time, they finally bowed out in the Fifth Round to a late strike by Premier League West Ham Utd and now hope to go further, but Northern Division Manchester City stand in the way as they travel to the QE Stadium in the Fourth Round this Sunday.
So far, Enfield have been to Hethersett Athletic and Bracknell Town for 5-0 victories before getting past Queen's Park Rangers on penalties and beating MSA Ladies 2-0.
"It's always difficult to get people and the press interested in ladies football and a Cup run is a sure way to grab some attention, " said captain and secretary Claire Gooch. "To play a club with a big name in any level of the game is a massive advantage, plus it is great to test yourself against teams we don't normally play and are also from another level of the game."
Sadly Enfield will be without leading scorer Katie Wilding who said: "I am gutted that an operation has sidelined me from the team. I'm keeping myself involved by supporting the girls but it's not the same as playing and I wish that I could be playing a bigger part in the run. The girls are all up for the challenge against City."
"As joint manager of the team with George (Norman) it is what keeps the interest going, we enjoy ourselves every game," added manager John Abbott. "The further we go, the more honour that we bring to the club and the easier it should be to build for the future in terms of getting our name known.
"I would also like thank all those at Enfield Town who help us to stage these games at our new venue and we want to do justice to both them and the ground."
