Ellistown relishing facing Stoke
 Women's Football News 8 Nov 2012
Ellistown play host to Stoke City in the F.A.Women's Cup this week and are relishing the chance to take on higher league opposition. 
The East Midlands League Premier Division side have won 2-1 away to Shenstone, courtesy of a last minute penalty, and 3-1 against Hereford Pegasus in their cup run so far and they are keen to test their credentials against the Midland Combination title hopefuls.
"With eight wins in the last nine games, confidence is high," General Manager Mick Garton revealed to Women's Soccer Scene. "After two long trips to Rugeley and Hereford in the previous two rounds the club and its supporters are really looking forward to hosting an F.A.Cup game - a home tie and the chance to get into the next round.
"We will put on a good show and hope the crowd will spur us on against a top class side to make it a classic game of football."
Ellistown captain, Kelly Green admitted: "Sunday will be a tough game for us. Stoke are doing well at the moment and with us being a league below them, their confidence going into the game will be high.
"But as underdogs we've got nothing to lose, we won't be showing them too much respect and if we play the football we are capable of, it should be an interesting cup tie."
The match is a big one for the vast majority of the Ellistown squad but Sally Walton can be forgiven for having played in bigger matches this season. Sally was a Bronze Medallist with the Team GB women's hockey squad at the Olympic Games in London during the summer but she is hoping for another good day on Sunday.
"I know all the girls and management are relishing the opportunity to play against a high calibre opposition such as Stoke," said Sally. "Anything can happen in the cup and certainly we will be giving it 100% out there from the first whistle to the last.
"I am enjoying the opportunity to play some football after the Olympics and this will be the highlight of my football season so far."
