Crewe Alexandra v Chester City
 Women's Football News 23 Oct 2010
F.A.Women's Cup - Road to the Final
Chester City came through a difficult challenge away to Accrington Girls & Ladies in the First Round Qualifying, eventually progressing following a 3-1 victory. Their reward is a trip away to fellow North East League Premier Division side Crewe Alexandra.
Crewe Alexandra LFC was founded in 2000. Originally named Crewe Vagrants (as they played at a sports club of the same name), they rapidly ascended the football pyramid and became affiliated to Crewe Alexandra's community programme. In 2004 they reached the final of the Cheshire County Cup for the first time and defeated FAW Premier League opponents Stockport County. After changing their name to Crewe Alexandra LFC in 2005 they achieved promotion to the FA Women's Premier League Northern Division in 2006, where they stayed for two seasons. Unfortunately, they slipped back into the Combination League for two seasons and then were relegated on the last day of the 2009-10 season back to the North West League Premier Division.
This season has seen the reappointment of Danny Robb to the Manager's role and this has heralded something of a revival in the club's fortunes as they now find themselves at the top of the division. Danny's influence in the women's game has encouraged several experienced players and centre of excellence graduates to join the club.
The club has also been boosted by the return of players on the long term injury list including club captain Gemma Edwards, after being on the injury list for two years and recovering from three knee operations. Gemma is the longest serving player at the club having played her first competitive match ten years ago when only 14 years old.
This tie will be played at MMU Cheshire and is potentially one of the best in the entire round. League form suggests that Crewe will start as narrow favourites, indeed they won 4-2 when the sides met in the league last month, but Chester are sure to provide a stern challenge and another close tie is in prospect.
