Liverpool Marshalls Feds are in the midst of an excellent Cup run and they are setting their sights on keeping it going when they travel to play Leicester City Women in the SSE Women's FA Cup Third Round on Sunday.
The FAWPL Northern Division One have already knocked out two teams from a higher division in Newcastle Utd and Stoke City, and captain Chantelle Thompson told Women's Soccer Scene that the team will be approaching the Leicester match in confident mood.
"The girls and the management are really looking forward to the game this Sunday," she said. "We've been working hard in training which, hopefully, we can carry on into the match. We have around 70 family, friends and fans travelling to the game so it's going to be a special day for the whole club."
The Feds have been regular challengers for a promotion place over the past few seasons and will go into the match having lost just once in their last fourteen matches.
"We had a shaky start to the season but we really picked it up and since then we have been on a great run of form," explained Chantelle. "The girls are confident in their own ability, we have beaten Stoke and Newcastle there's no reason why we couldn't pull off another 'cupset'."
Liverpool Marshalls Feds also did well in the Premier League Cup this season, getting as far as the quarter final, and Chantelle is convinced that occasions such as Sunday's cup tie can only raise the profile of the club.
"It definitely does," she laughed. "I bet Leicester had never heard of us before this game so it's good to get our name about for the right reasons!
"The incentive for us to beat Leicester is more about proving that a little grassroots club can compete with the bigger teams. We've missed out on promotion the last two seasons, finishing second, so we really do believe we could be competing in the league above. If we managed to pull a win off and draw a WSL side [in the next round] it would be a great occasion."
