Wolves Women are looking forward to Sunday's SSE Women's FA Cup encounter with Nottingham Forest after their Christmas break.
They have already had a busy time in cup competitions so far this season with three stints of extra time, and are still in both the Birmingham County Cup and the FA Cup. All the cup games have left them a bit behind with league fixtures, but they are still in second place behind league leaders Loughborough Foxes, six points adrift and with two games in hand.
It has been an eventful season for the club so far, with manager Steve Cullis moving upwards within the club to oversee the Regional Talent Centre, while Tim Dudding has taken over as First Team Manager.
The link between the Youth and Senior squads is extremely strong, with the majority of the squad having come through the ranks at Wolves Women. The Under-18s work closely with the senior side, and Ruby Meeson and Nikki Lal have both made their first team debuts this season and impressed.
Defender Claire Hakeman (pictured) told Women's Soccer Scene: "We've had a few tricky draws in the FA Cup so far; now we are looking forward to pitting ourselves against a good Nottingham Forest side from the league above.
"We're on a good run in the League....it'll be nice to have a break from that and should be a decent test for us post Christmas!"
Manager Tim Dudding added: "We as a club are excited to take part in the next round of the FA Cup, and can't wait to meet our counterparts this weekend. The FA Cup brings back fond memories for a number of players and staff, and it's a competition we all look forward to.
"We've worked hard to get where we are with the competition and look to progress as far as we can playing our football in the way that we like to. Bring on the weekend!"
