Cheltenham Town Ladies drawn against Exeter City Women in Women’s FA Cup

Cheltenham Town Ladies have been drawn against Exeter City Women in the second round of the Women’s FA Cup.

The Grecian’s play in the FA Women’s National League Division One South West, one division below the Robinesses after they were promoted last season.

The two teams have only met once before with Exeter getting the better of Cheltenham, winning 2-1 back in 2014.

The tie will take place on Sunday 26 November, with a ground yet to be specified by the club, with a possibility of playing at Whaddon Road.

If Cheltenham are victorious they will collect £8,000 after the prize fund for the competition was doubled from £3million to £6m.

Making it to the third round will mean the club will play for a pot of £44,000 (the winner receiving £35,000), rising from £12,500 in the previous year.
