Moneyfields have been working their way up the women's football pyramid and on Sunday, they get a chance to test their credentials against National League opposition when they take on Larkhall Athletic in the Second Round Qualifying of the Women's FA Cup.
The Moneys came through with a 4-1 extra time victory over Ilminster Town in the last round and have been rewarded with a tie against more opposition from Somerset, who have started the season well at the higher level.
Moneyfields themselves have been in good form though and after winning the Division One title in the Southern Region League last season, they are currently among the front runners in the Premier Division having won both of their opening matches, and manager Karl Watson admitted to Women's Soccer Scene that he and his team are ready to face the Larks.
"This season Moneyfields Ladies have really got their teeth into the world's biggest and most prestigious tournament - the FA Cup," he smiled.
"Blessed with a bye in the Preliminary Round we have since beaten Eastleigh 2-1 at the Silverlake Stadium in our season curtain raiser. That was followed by a long haul down to Ilminster, where a super human display from the home keeper took us to extra time before we eventually ran out 4-1 winners to book our place in the next round.
"That next round is why we're here today and very excited to take on the huge task of trying to get past Larkhall from the league above !
"We all know what the magic of the FA Cup is about and even at my age, I shut my eyes at night and picture us at Wembley thinking big and dreaming bigger and who knows if we get through against Larkhall. Can we...could we...let's have a go and see what happens."
