Hemel Hempstead manager Mark Gurney is looking forward to the opportunity of taking on Premier League side Milton Keynes Dons in the SSE Women's FA Cup First Round on Sunday.
The Greater London League side have enjoyed an excellent Cup run so far which will bring their biggest challenge this weekend. "This is a fantastic achievement for the team, who have worked so hard this season in the FA Cup, and achieved some remarkable results along the way," Gurney told Women's Soccer Scene. "In the Second Round Qualifying, they beat higher ranked Bedford Ladies FC 2.1 at home, in a hard fought victory that was full of passion and fight, right to the final whistle. Next, Hemel again faced higher ranked opposition, this time in the form of Herne Bay. Once more they faced a tough and determined opposition, but they stood firm with the ladies playing superbly to take the win.
"In the Fourth Round Qualifying, we were once more drawn at home against higher ranked opposition, with AFC Dunstable making the short trip down the M1. Hemel were able to win 2-0, fighting extremely well for each other, and never letting Dunstable settle after the first fifteen minutes.
"The ladies thoroughly deserve making it into the First Round proper of the SSE Women's FA Cup, and will enjoy the experience of playing an experienced and talented MK Dons team. They go into the match knowing that they have already knocked out three higher ranked teams, and will have nothing to fear if they play to their potential.
"The ladies are really looking forward to the match, which will undoubtedly be the highlight of the season so far. As their manager, I am very proud of the players and how they continue to play attractive football, more often than not trying to play their way through the opposition in the right way. If they approach this match with the same attitude as their previous three FA Cup matches, Sunday should prove to be a match to remember."
