Whitley Bay go into Sunday's FA Women's Cup Second Round tie against Leeds City Vixens with the experience of several wins against higher league opposition in previous seasons.
In their short history, they have become known for their FA Cup exploits and once again are one of the few Regional teams remaining in the competition. In the past, they have seen off seven higher placed clubs, including this season's 2-1 win against Northern Combination side Tranmere Rovers.
The players know that this Sunday will be their toughest test, with Premier League side Leeds City Vixens the visitors to Hillheads. Captain Donna Brown, who has been at the club since it was formed in 2005, is looking forward to the game. "We love the FA Cup, especially pitting our wits against higher league sides," she says. "The pressure is off us and being underdogs seems to help us."
Whitley's First Round win against Middleton Athletic was their first game since the Third Round Qualifying victory against Tranmere on November 14 and the team were glad to get the game under the belts. As well as Donna, they will rely on experienced players such as Julie Twaddle, Nikki Smith, Rachel Kay, Laura Darmody and Steph O'Brien as well as the Coleman sisters Lisa and Sarah, who both joined the club from Newcastle.
