Crunch time as Spurs Ladies prepare for FA Women's Cup
07 January 2015|Tottenham Hotspur
Tottenham Hotspur Ladies are preparing for a huge month - starting with their first step in this year's FA Women's Cup on Sunday.
The team enters the prestigious trophy at the second round stage with a home tie against FA Women's Premier League South rivals Copsewood Coventry LFC at Ware FC.
The following week (Sunday, January 18) the ladies - currently sixth and still in the title race - travel to FAWPL South leaders Brighton and after another long away trip to Plymouth on January 25, they face Gillingham in the semi-final of the Ryman Cup back at Ware on Thursday, January 29.
"In many ways, the next month is make or break time for us," said manager, Karen Hills.
"We start off in the FA Women's Cup at the second round stage and if we beat Copsewood, we go into the next round with the Super League clubs.
"We'd all love to draw one of the big clubs in the next round to test ourselves in a high-profile match.
"We've got a couple of important league fixtures coming up as well against Brighton and Plymouth and then we play Gillingham in the Ryman Cup and we've a chance there of reaching a cup final.
"We've been out of action since December 14 after Sunday's game was postponed but we've a friendly pencilled in this week and all the players are fit and raring to go."
Spurs Ladies would love to see your support at Ware FC on Sunday - kick-off is 1pm.
