PEAKE | WE KNOW THE TASK AHEAD

18 March 2022

"All of the girls are excited and this opportunity shows how far we have come as a club"

Paige Peake says everyone in the squad is looking forward to Town Women's Vitality Women's FA Cup quarter-final with West Ham United at the Goldstar Ground in Felixstowe this weekend.

The Tractor Girls will be cheered on by 2,000 supporters at 12.30pm on Sunday, with BBC Red Button also showing the clash live.

Town, who are currently members of the FA Women's National League Southern Division, will be looking to pull off an upset against the Hammers, who sit seventh in the Women's Super League - the top division in the women's football pyramid.

"We know the task ahead," central defender Paige said.

"West Ham are obviously a really strong team but we are a fearless group and we will embrace the occasion.

"All of the girls are excited and this opportunity shows how far we have come as a club. We had the experience of playing Manchester City in the FA Cup a couple of years ago, but with this game being shown on TV it will be great exposure for everyone.

"We're not in this competition to make up the numbers and we will give it everything we've got."
