By David Hansen
Sunday afternoon sees a historic day for the club, as Margate Women take on Bromleians in the 2nd qualifying round of the FA cup at Hartsdown Park looking for a place in the 3rd qualifying round.
Margate booked their place in the 2nd qualifying round after beating Maidstone United at Hartsdown Park in the first round 6-0, whilst opposition Bromleians defeated Glebe 5-0 at the Old Elthanmians’ War memorial recreation ground to take their place as the visitors to Hartsdown Park.
Both teams come into the game of the back of losses away from home as Margate suffered their first defeat of the season as they lost 2-1 to Parkwood Rangers. While Bromleians were defeated 6-0 at Tunbridge Wells Foresters.
There is a potential return for fullback Abbey Duff after missing the start of the season through injury. Fleur Charman is back available after missing the trip to Parkwood Rangers. Defensive Midfielder Nicole Adams will be unavailable through injury as well as top scorer Paige Godden who is also unavailable through injury. There is also potential for a full debut for Charlotte Scales after 2 appearances from the bench. As well as a potential return to action for midfielder Jemma Barton.
Manager Steph Meek spoke to Ryan Day about how the Women’s game has grown and talked about the historic game against Bromleians on Sunday on GateTV which you can watch here.
Kick off for the game is at 3:00pm and entrance to the ground is available from the side gate next to the turnstiles with adults costing £2 and concessions being £1.
It has the ability to be a fantastic day for the ‘Gate and for the promotion of the women's game and we hope to see as many supporters witness a fantastic afternoon at Hartsdown Park.
