Aylesford are looking forward to one of the biggest matches in their history on Sunday when they play host to Gillingham in the SSE Women's FA Cup Fourth Round Qualifying.
The London & South East League side came through a tricky tie at Cowfold in the last round and now take on the Premier League club, which has a good Cup record in recent seasons, and manager Dwayne Ellis is looking forward to the challenge.
"The match will be a historic occasion for everyone linked with Aylesford Football Club, and I'm really proud to be a part of it," he said. "Being a Gillingham fan, it's an extra special match for me. Before this season we had never won an FA Cup match so to be one match away from making the First Round Proper is a fantastic achievement by the players, and we all want our cup journey to continue for as long as possible.
"Gillingham are a fantastic club with a squad full of talented players so we know it will be our biggest challenge yet as a team but with home advantage and support, the passion of a Kent derby and a great squad to choose from, we are capable of causing an upset."
Aylesford captain Rebecca Barr added: "On Sunday we take on Gillingham Ladies FC in the biggest game in the club's history. We are going into the game as underdogs with nothing to lose. However, with this in mind, we will be competing against them on our home surface, in front of our home crowd and we will try our very best to put on a great spectacle for all spectators. Win or lose, we are extremely proud of our achievements taking into account the tough couple of seasons we have had to get to where we are now."
"I am absolutely buzzing for the game this Sunday, especially as it's a local derby between us and Gillingham, the only two Kent sides left in the cup," says vice captain Bethany Hulme. "All the girls are raring to go and we all realise as a group this will be a massive challenge, but with our first team getting stronger this season with some decent additions, I really believe we can cause an upset and come away with a win and a place in the First Round Proper of the FA Cup."
