Morecambe are gearing up for the biggest match in their history this Sunday when they come face to face with Coventry City in the Third Round of the F.A.Women's Cup.
The North East League side have had an excellent Cup run to date, having beaten Northern Combination opposition in each of the last two rounds, but this is the first time they will take on a Premier League outfit.
"All the girls are very excited for their trip to Coventry at the weekend and looking forward to the experience of playing such a top side," Morecambe defender Sophie Fish told Women's Soccer Scene. "This is what the FA Cup is all about and you just never know! The girls are taking inspiration from Bradford, Luton, Oldham and Leeds and will go out there and enjoy the occasion.
"It will be interesting to see the difference in standard just to see where we stand in the women's game. We know that it won't be easy but are hoping we can hold our heads up and put in a proud performance."
The SeaGals are currently locked in a title battle in the Premier Division with Blackpool, Tranmere Rovers and Crewe Alexandra but Sophie concedes that the Coventry match has turned out to be a welcome distraction for the team as they prepare to take on their top flight opponents.
"We've just finished a good training session and excitement and nerves were flowing through the team, all fighting for a place in Sunday's squad," she admitted. "I don't envy the management's decision for Sunday as they are going to have to upset a handful of players who won't even make the team sheet, but unfortunately with such a strong squad that's just football and not to be taken personally.
"We are all just glad to still be in the cup and looking forward to a special day for Morecambe Ladies FC."
