Sporting Club Albion head for Manchester City

2 April 2016

Abercrombie has full squad to choose from

SPORTING Club Albion Ladies will today head for their biggest-ever match - with head coach Graham Abercrombie calling on his side to 'enjoy the moment'.

The Baggies side will take on Manchester City in the Women's FA Cup quarter-finals (KO 2pm).

City are regarded as one of the finest sides in Europe.

But Abercrombie, who has a full squad to choose from, has urged his team to make the most of their experience at the Academy stadium.

"We are fully fit, fully healthy and I have a squad who are desperate to play and prove themselves," said Abercrombie.

"We will try to enjoy every moment of today's game.

"This is a one-off game for us, a great opportunity to put ourselves on the map and hopefully one day this can be a regular fixture.

"City are one of the best sides in Europe, let alone this country, so we have to be realistic about our ambitions.

"But what we can do is give it our best and I've no doubt the team will do so."
