AEK Boco are gearing up for one of the biggest games in their history on Sunday and a chance to repeat the headlines they achieved three years ago.
Then, Boco knocked out Shanklin - members of the Premier League at the time - at the same stage before falling to Chichester City in the next round. This weekend they take on Larkhall Athletic and captain Sasha Ferris is hopeful they can add to their Cup run so far, which has taken them past Downend Flyers, Paulton Rovers and Bristol Rovers.
"We're optimistic going in to the game, we tend to thirve of being the underdogs in a big game," she told Women's Soccer Scene. "I have full confidence in the squad that we will give it our all.
"It's been an exciting journey so far, in hand with learning to play with a new bunch of players. We've probably learnt a lot about ourselves, and our capiibilites along the way, playing the teams we've come up against."
Lucy Atkinson scored the winning goal when Boco beat Shanklin and she insists there is no pressure on the South West League team. "We're going in as underdogs and we are going to go and play some good football," she said. "Just using our confidence from the success in the last few rounds, just go out there and give it our all.
"It's been one of our most successful runs so far, with younger girls coming up having a massive input in our squad and making us look sharp."
"I feel excited and a bit nervous as I've just came up from the Under-16s and they are two leagues above us," added Ellie Staples. "I'm ready.
"Everyone has worked so hard to get where we are. We work well as a team and got the results we deserve."
