Wednesday aim to make more progress
 Women's Football FA Women's Cup News - 2 Dec 2016
Sheffield Wednesday face a massive game this Sunday when they make the trip to Nottingham to face Premier League team Radcliffe Olympic in the SSE Women's FA Cup First Round.
Wednesday's route began in the Second Round Qualifying with a great performance and 4-0 win against West Riding County league Brighouse Athletic with scorers Jade Rabjohn (2) Kathryn Mudge, Stacey Buxton and Michelle Wakelin. Next up was a much tougher prospect against Steel City Wanderers. A great 4-1 win which was surprisingly comfortable against an in-form FA Premier league team, Kathryn Mudge, Emma Otley, Anna Cairns and Ellis Ridge scored the goals.
The toughest tie of the campaign was in the Fourth Round Qualifying where the squad travelled 130 miles north to Newcastle to face Wallsend Boys Club Ladies whose club is famous for the players who started their careers there including Alan Shearer, Peter Beardsley and Michael Carrick. Wallsend were the better team in the 1st half and went 1-0 up in 21 minutes, before Wednesday equalised just before half time with a rather fortuitous goal from Channy Rymer, who also scored the winner with a beauty of a goal that deserved to win such an important game. Wednesday were the better team in the second half but had to throw themselves in front of everything and hung on for the last ten minutes to see the game out 2-1.
"For those not up to date with SWLFC recent history, this is the furthest our current first team have got in the FA Cup," manager Dave Higgins told Women's Soccer Scene. "In years gone by, the old first team did reach the quarter finals but that was before behind the scenes disputes (some six years ago) saw the old first team split from the junior section and rename themselves Sheff Wed Women. They then had to fold due to financial problems and SWFC wanting only one ladies section. That meant our then successful U18's had to step up and take on the first team mantle, starting at the lowest tier in women's football in the Sheffield & Hallamshire League.
"Whatever the outcome of the game on Sunday, its sure to be a cracker with both teams liking to play the game the right way and although our lot are going into the game as underdogs, I'm sure they will give a good account of themselves."
