Plymouth Argyle travel to Kent to take on Gillingham in the second round of the SSE FA Cup today with their tails up after booking their spot in the semi-finals of the Swift-print Devon Sunday Senior Cup having beaten Alphington 11-1.
Leading the challenge will be last season’s top goalscorer Natasha Knapman, whose five goals against Alphington took her tally to a remarkable 35 goals from just 11 games.
The Pilgrims will now receive local rivals Marine Academy Plymouth in the last four of the Devon competition.
Also looking to bank a healthy £900 with FA Cup success are Keynsham Town, Swindon Town and Brislington. Keynsham host Southampton, who put a dent in the West Country side’s promotion hopes last weekend when a Jane Yeates goal gave the Hampshire club victory.
Swindon will hope to put aside their miserable FA Women’s Premier League Southern season with a win at Brislington, who came away from Buckland Athletic 4-1 winners.
If successful, the teams will be in the hat for the third round with the ties due to take place on Sunday, January 7.
