After a successful season last year, winning the London & South East Division One (London) title and the Surrey County Cup, Carshalton Athletic's young side entered the FA Women's Cup for the first time in their history this season.
They have done remarkably well first time around, having gone one stage further and are one of the last remaining Regional League clubs in the competition and on Sunday they will pit their wits against runaway FAWPL South West Division One leaders Swindon Town.
"Our target was to reach the First Round proper and to test ourselves against higher opposition," Carshalton coach Paul Williams told Women's Soccer Scene. This has been achieved with an excellent victory when we held our nerve to go through on penalties against Enfield Town [in the last round].
"Despite being the underdogs, we are looking forward to testing ourselves against the South West Division One leaders. Our main priority is the league campaign but the various cup competitions have been a nice and welcome distraction."
Captain Danielle Davies (pictured, red shirt) added: "We have not had the best of luck with injuries so far in the FA cup but our desire has got us through this far. Let's hope we have some left for Sunday!"
