Lowick relishing Middlesbrough challenge
 Women's Football News 9 Oct 2015
The women from England's most northerly football club embark on another stage of their SSE Women's FA Cup adventure this Sunday, when they travel to play Middlesbrough. 
The game will be held at Thornaby FC's compact ground and the Lowick girls all have plenty of support, with a coachful of followers making the trip down the A1 and A19 to cheer on 'The Combine Harvester Girls'.
The Lowick team are through to the Third Round Qualifying, and who would back against the squad which despatched a strong Tynedale team in the previous round 4-0 at Lowick's home ground - New Barber Park.
They started their Cup run with a tricky away tie against Birtley Town with a 2-0 victory and eyes were then squarely focused on the next round with Tynedale in their sights. Tynedale have had something of a hold over the North Northumberland outfit in recent seasons, but two goals from Kirstie Brewis were added to by Amy Hately and a deflected effort from Jodie Robinson.
The ladies were then eager to see who they would draw out the hat and they were not disappointed, a plum tie away to Middlesbrough ladies. The Middlesbrough outfit play two divisions above the Lowick side, in the FA Women's Premier League Northern Division One. Once the excitement of the draw had sunk in, there was a feeling of trepidation in the camp, considering their recent league form sees Middlesbrough top their respective league and Lowick searching for their first win. However this is the cup, and anything can happen.
"We could not ask for a better draw," manager Marc Murray told Women's Soccer Scene. "The highest ranked team in the draw against the lowest. It's a bit like David versus Goliath, but the girls are looking forward to testing themselves against a quality side that is flying high in their league, and scoring lots of goals. We are not kidding ourselves, we know it's going to be tough, but if the girls work hard, and we get a bit of luck, you just never know, it might just be our day. The girls deserve this opportunity with the hard work they put in, it's been a long journey to get here and these games don't come along often. So we are just going to enjoy the day."
Lowick captain Steph Hay added: "The draw in the FA Cup against Middlesbrough is fantastic! I feel extremely positive and excited. We are all ready to soak up the atmosphere and play our very best football. This will be a game to remember by all."
"I am really excited, we have a good team spirit and always perform better when we are the underdogs of a match," said midfielder Jenny Patterson.
