Radcliffe Olympic produced the shock of the round in the Premier League Plate on Sunday when they defeated Stoke City 4-1.
Beth Bailey scored twice along with Rania Ramadan and Dani Saulter as the Midlands Division One side knocked out their high flying Northern Division opponents to progress into the last sixteen. This also completed a good few days for Radcliffe who had beaten Loughborough Students 3-1 in the league prior to this match.
We talked to Radcliffe Olympic captain Laura Turner who was understandably delighted with her team's display and result but still feels that there is more to come in the future:
Congratulations on an excellent win on Sunday, how good was it to be a team of the quality of Stoke City?
It was a great reflection of our hard work so far this season. The squad and the management team showed commitment and professionalism and it was highly enjoyable to play in.
What did you think was the best aspect of the team's performance?
Without doubt the focus of the players for the duration of the game and the implementation of things we have been working on in previous games and in training.
Was the performance as well as the team has ever played?
It was a great performance but we certainly have the ability to improve and play even better football.
Who would you ideally like to draw in the next round?
That's a tough question, any team that fancies their chances!
You also had a good win against Loughborough Students in midweek, can the team build on these results and catch up with the leading teams?
We are only just getting started!
The division is shaping up to be a very tight one this season, can you see it staying that way?
This division can be unpredictable, particularly as the season progresses, but initial indications are that there will be quite a few teams challenging for the top spot this time. There is a lot of talent in the league and it makes for some exciting women's football.
This Sunday you play Steel City Wanderers and a win could put you up into fourth place. Do you see this as a very important game for the club?
Every game is very important and this Sunday is no different.
