Loughborough Foxes v Sheffield United
 Women's Football FA Women's Cup News - 3 Feb 2019
SSE Women's FA Cup - Road to the Final
Loughborough Foxes were the winners of one of the ties of the round, beating Billericay Town 4-3. Becky McGrother scored twice with Rebecca Knight and Eva Rogers adding the others as Loughborough edged a seven-goal thriller to reach the Fourth Round for the first time. Their opponents will be Sheffield United of the FA Women's Championship, who have been exempt until this stage.
Sheffield United Women were initially established back in the 1990's by Blades legend Tony Currie, as part of the ‘United in the Community' project. This extension of the club afforded local girls the opportunity to participate in the ever-growing sport of women's football.
Sheffield United has been nationally recognised as a first-class academy for nurturing footballing talent. Despite not having a professional women's first team prior to April 2018, the club's academy has had an established girls' academy for over 16 years with graduates such as Millie Bright, Ellie Roebuck, Beth England and Jess Sigsworth.
United are one of only 34 clubs in England to have a licence from the Football Association allowing the club to run a Regional Talent Club (RTC), nurturing elite girls football across four age groups (U10s, U12s, U14s and U16s).
Additionally, in addition to elite programme, the club is active in promoting grassroots football programmes. The Sheffield United Community Foundation runs girls' and women's teams from ages 7-8 right up to a competitive senior team.
United have openly displayed a commitment to women's football and will continue to do so, with the backing of co-owners Kevin McCabe and Prince Abdullah. In early 2018 following a national restructuring of the game, the club submitted a bid to secure a place in the FA Women's Championship, which completed the pathway from academy to professional women's football leagues, something the club hadn't secured before.
Following the successful bid, the club was granted FA Women's Championship status which saw newly appointed and experienced manager Carla Ward formulate a new team. As well as harnessing existing club talent, Carla also brought in players with experience of the level the club now found itself at.
Since starting the FA Women's Championship campaign in September 2018, Sheffield United Women have played at the historic Bramall Lane but have now established themselves at the new Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park, which, once completed, will be the country's first dedicated stadium for women's football.
