Blues begin FA Cup campaign

11 November 2022

Pompey Women embark on their Vitality Women's FA Cup journey as they take on Abingdon Town on Sunday (1pm kick-off).

It comes off the back of a 3-0 victory away at Crawley Wasps for Jay Sadler's side.

Emma Jones, Jazz Younger and Sophie Quirk were on the scoresheet for Pompey's first-ever league victory at the Sussex-based side.

It's the Blues' third consecutive away fixture, having picked up three points in the National League the week prior against Plymouth.

Pompey made it to the second round of the FA Cup last season with a 13-0 victory over Dorking at Westleigh Park.

Cherelle Khassal, Tamsin de Bunsen and Shannon Albuery all scored hat-tricks, whilst Hayley Bridge, Ava Rowbotham and Sammy Quayle were also on the scoresheet.

Abingdon currently sit fifth in the Southern Region Women's Football League, with two wins and two defeats to their name.

MATCH INFORMATION
The game takes place at the Marcham Centre (OX13 6TY), with tickets available to buy at the turnstiles.

VIEW FROM THE DRESSING ROOM
Ahead of the fixture, Blues boss Jay Sadler said: "It’s what the FA Cup is all about.

"Abingdon Town have been on an upward trajectory in recent years, and are riding a wave of momentum in this year’s competition too.

"Obviously we’re going into unknown territory, having never faced them. We certainly won’t be taking the tie lightly, and we’ll have to be ready to solve all the problems they throw at us on the day."
