The Women’s FA Cup continue this weekend with some interesting pairings in the Northern Zone.
After shaking off sixteen teams in the preliminary stage of the competition, the northern zone has two division one teams surviving alongside six premier league sides. The draw took place on Tuesday at the GFA secretariat and teams are paired again to battle it out in the round of 16 stage this weekend.
The week will begin with a regional derby, with FC Savannah looking to get past their regional counterparts Northern Ladies, a premier league side in their bid to forge ahead.
FC Savannah has premier league promotion as a target and have since been working tirelessly towards achieving it. They lost their promotion to Supreme Ladies the last time they went for the middle league. The team seem to be on a rise this season as they prepare for the regional Women’s Division One league, which is expected to commence next month.
