F.A.Women's Cup - Road to the Final
C & K Basildon ended the Cup hopes of Maidenhead Utd by beating them 6-2. Sara Sinclair and Zoe Rushen each netted twice, with further strikes from Claire Lacey and Karissa Rodney for C & K who are away to Plymouth Argyle, who received a bye to this stage.
The club was formed in 1975 as a result of a five-a-side league at the Mayflower Leisure Centre in Plymouth. Two teams then merged in order to enter an 11-a-side football tournament in Newquay, Cornwall with the team creating the name of 'Plymouth Pilgrims'. Following the success of the tournament Plymouth Pilgrims played in numerous competitions throughout the 70's and 80's with the most notable achievement being when they reached the quarter final of the Women's FA Cup in both 1976 and 1977.
The club name changed to Saltash Pilgrims on late 1990/early 2000 to reflect their home ground at the time - Saltash United's Kimberly Stadium in Cornwall. It was not until the 2001-02 season that the club, then competing in the South West Combination, were invited to compete under the umbrella of Plymouth Argyle F.C. and Plymouth Argyle Ladies were formed.
The club held the Devon FA Women's County Cup for a record number of years from 2002-2006 and enjoyed a highly respectable second placed finish in the South West Combination in the 2006-07 season.
The 2010-11 season saw the ladies win promotion to the Premier League but unfortunately after one season were relegated back to the Combination. However Plymouth Argyle completed the league and cup double in the 2013-14 season, securing the league title and the Devon County FA Senior Women's Cup. Following this success they were elected to join the newly formed FA Women's Premier League Southern Division for the 2014-15 season.
Kev Rose is manager of the team, assisted by Travis Rowland. The side is captained by Katie Middleton, who is also the longest serving player having joined in 1999, and Mollie Taylor is leading scorer with five goals.
Plymouth have adjusted to life very well in the Southern Division and will start an intriguing tie as narrow favourites but C & K Basildon are set to be very tough opponents and a close battle is in prospect.
