Cambridge City Ladies are set for one of the biggest games in their history tomorrow (Sunday).

The Lilywhites were able to use the Women’s Cambridgeshire Invitation Cup match against Cambridge Rangers as a perfect warm-up for a big Vitality Women's FA Cup clash this Sunday (November 28).

They earned a 14-1 success thanks to a hat-trick from Grace Stanley, two apiece from Amy Reed and Lolly Tomlinson, and one each from Carla Penny, Erin Davies, Ellie Cullum, Freya Goddard, Charlotte Gillies, Zynia Delglyn and Philippa Witherspoon.

This Sunday (November 28), City play in the second round for the first time.

They host Stourbridge Ladies, of the West Midlands Regional Women’s League, Premier Division, at Ely City’s Demcom Stadium (kick off 2pm).

Tim Rapley, City's assistant manager said: “We’ve had some great moments in the FA Cup in recent years, knocking out higher league opposition, last minute winners, but this is by far the most important game in our history with an opportunity to progress to the third round. We hope the City family will get behind us and come and support the girls in what we’re sure will be an entertaining and exciting game.”

Entry costs £5 for adults, £4 for concessions and under-16s go free.

In the Hunts County Cup, Cambridge United Women sealed an 11-0 victory at Cardea Ladies last Sunday.

United are in FA Women’s National League, Division One South East action at home to London Seaward at St Neots Town.
