Abbeytown v Leeds City Vixens
 Women's Football News 10 Nov 2012
F.A.Women's Cup - Road to the Final
Abbeytown are one step away from reaching the First Round Proper for the first time after a Hannah Robinson hat-trick guided them towards a fine 3-1 victory over North Shields in the last round. The Cumbria League side have been rewarded with a plum home tie against Leeds City Vixens of the Northern Combination.
Leeds City Vixens were founded in 1993 by Martin Cockerill who developed the club into a recognised brand, having won both national and international tournaments in addition to steady progress through the women's leagues.
This progress was crowned in 2009 when the Vixens carried off the Northern Combination title and were promoted to the Premier League for the first time in their history. After two mid-table finishes in the Northern Division, they were unfortunately relegated last season and are currently mid-table in the Combination.
The success and reputation of the club has been built upon providing the right balance between quality, enjoyment and their relationship with the community. The club conforms to the highest standards in terms of the facilities and coaching provided. The management of the club is based upon leadership and vision with the driving principles being respect, trust and shared ambition. Most importantly, the club strives to provide an environment that is fun for both the players and the volunteers who have chosen to be associated with the club.
Andy Thorpe has taken up the reins as manager this season, assisted by coaches Gary Cocker and Ste Talbot. Carla Baxby is captain of a team which is adjusting to life at a new level but showed its capabilities recently with a fine win against leaders South Durham & Cestria.
Special mentions go to sponsors Phoenix Works and Macron Wakefield - without these sponsors it would be very hard for the club to run during the season. Vixens are an independent club and do not have a men's team or a big club name's support, they are solely a women's team and rely on sponsors and the commitment of the backroom staff.
The game takes place at Abbeytown's home ground at Barton Laws and suggests a classic Cup tie between a County League side and Combination opponents. Leeds City Vixens will start the game as favourites but Abbeytown are sure to relish the chance of taking on top class opposition.
