In the Southern half of the F.A.Women's Cup, we have drawn the tie between Eastleigh and Boscombe Albion as the one to follow.
Eastleigh will be entering the F.A.Women's Cup for the second season, having made their debut in the Preliminary Round last season where they lost 5-0 at home to Aldershot Town.
This season will be the third in the side's history, having won the Division Two Championship in the Hampshire County Women's League, followed by finishing in third place in Division One in the last campaign.
The team is a part of the main Eastleigh Football Club, which competes in the Blue Square Conference South, and they are preparing their way towards Charter Standard status.
Having lost two players during the summer in midfielder Sam Read and leading goalscorer Night Murray Walker, they have added new signings Darcey Read and Alice Thorne as replacements in their squad.
Boscombe Albion Football Club was established in 1972 and was a founder member of the Bournemouth Youth Football League. The club took its red and black striped kit from Bournemouth and Boscombe Athletic FC, which in the same year changed its name to AFC Bournemouth and adopted the kit of AC Milan.
The Club achieved Charter Standard Development Status in 2003 and was awarded Community Club Status in June 2009. Football is now offered to boys from 8 years old to adult and girls from 9-15. There are currently 14 teams wearing the red and black - six in the Bournemouth Youth League, one in Dorset, five in the Dorset Girls League, a men's team and the ladies, currently in the Dorset League.
With plans to start a disabled team and to establish formal links with a number of schools in the area, the future looks bright for the club.
Ian Shiers undertakes the role of Manager and the team is coached by Steve Davies, with Kerry Deacon as captain.
