Chichester City Ladies will face a familiar foe in the FA Cup – but only if they overcome Sussex rivals Crawley Wasps tomorrow.
Aaron Smith’s side have been in excellent form all year, meaning at the half way point of the season they are second in the National Southern Premier, one point behind leaders Coventry United.
And it is the Midlands side who Chi could face in the third round of the FA Cup – but only if they win in their rescheduled tie with the Wasps at Oakwood on Sunday (2pm).
The second round tie should have taken place last weekend but fell foul of the winter weather as torrential rain fell in the area.
The winner will then take on Coventry at Daventry Town on January 6.
The first half of the season has been extra special for Jess Lewry, who marked her 50th appearance for the club just a few weeks ago.
Lewry first appeared in the green and white back in the title winning 2016/17 season in the 4-0 win over Cheltenham.
In that time, the tricky winger has netted 27 times and, after shaking off a number of injuries, looks back to her best – registering three assists in the recent 4-2 win over Basildon which marked her half century.
She said: “To have been part of this club and to have made that many appearances is just amazing.
“I had no idea until after the Basildon game and it was definitely good to mark it with a trio of assists. It made it all the more special.”
