Crawley buzzing about Arsenal cup tie
 Women's Football FA Women's Cup News - 1 Feb 2019
Crawley Wasps are gearing up for the biggest match in their history this coming Sunday, when mighty Arsenal are coming to town.
The FA Women's National League Division One South East leaders have been drawn against the 14-time winners in the Fourth Round of the SSE Women's FA Cup.
Crawley Wasps are having an incredible season to date, having won every game bar one to date and they are in the driving seat in the title race in their division. They are also through to the quarter finals of the Premier League Cup at the first attempt and have embarked on an impressive run in the FA Cup, with impressive wins over Chichester City and Coventry Utd in the previous two rounds.
Now, they face the ultimate test of taking on a team of full time professionals which is packed with international stars and is challenging for their first FA WSL title in seven years.
The tie has captured the town's imagination and the trophy itself paid a visit to Crawley this week as part of the pre-match publicity. Captain Naomi Cole is set to play a vital role for the team and the occasion will be a special one for the former England Under-23 international as she began her career in the youth ranks at Arsenal.
"We've got no expectations on us," she said. "It's an absolute bonus if we can put in a fantastic performance and push Arsenal.
"They'll play their brand of football, it's down to us to try and break that up. Bringing them to Oakwood is going to be a test for them, which will be great for us.
"We're going to make it as uncomfortable as possible."
"I used to live with Jordan [Nobbs] and I'm really close to Dan Carter. But no matter who they put out, they'll be quality players, whether it's the internationals or the youngsters.
"We're going to enjoy the occasion, hopefully get a lot of people through the door and make Crawley proud.
"We want to build a foundation at this club. This environment is fantastic. Everyone's like a family here and we want to bring that culture to the fans and make them feel like they're welcome here."
For manager Paul Walker, the chance to pit his wits against Joe Montemurro and his star-studded squad is a mouthwatering one, and one that he is really looking forward to.
He said: "It's the biggest day in the club's history, it's probably the biggest day in women's football in Crawley.
"The most important thing to us is not making loads of money, it's about putting on a super event.
"It's David and Goliath. We want the locals to get behind us and be our twelfth man."
The match will be played at Crawley Wasps' home ground at Tinsley Lane, the home of Oakwood FC and the kick off is at 3pm.
Tickets are still available and cost £5 for adults, £2 for concessions and £1 for 16 and under, and should be bought in advance online to avoid disappointment, as none will be available to buy on the day if sold out. Visit www.crawleywasps.com and click on the tickets graphic.
