Wem Town Ladies will end the long wait for a match this week, as they travel to Middlesbrough in the Third Round of the Vitality Women's FA Cup.
Wem received a walkover in the previous round last week and will play their first competitive match since December when they take on ‘Boro, with a home tie against Sheffield United in the last 32 on offer for the winners. Manager Lawrence Wilson told Women's Soccer Scene that he and his players are relishing the chance just to be out on the pitch once again.
"Everyone is looking forward to the fixture the weekend - it has been a long three and a half months without football," he said. "But everyone is glad to be back on the pitch, like every team, doing what they enjoy.
"Being an FA Cup game, it has more importance, it will be a test for the girls playing higher division opponents but one they will be prepared for. Hopefully when the final whistle blows, the result is in our favour."
"The FA Cup is always a special occasion," added captain Kim Bebbington, and after a tough 12 months we are excited and proud to be representing Wem Town in the Third Round. We've all been working hard as a club, and are looking forward to the challenge ahead.
"We are like one big family here at Wem and as such, we will be wearing black armbands for the match as our goalkeeper recently lost her dad - this one is for her."
