Villa Ladies: Boss Hunt excited by Liverpool Ladies FA Cup draw


Boss Joe Hunt spoke of the "excitement in camp" as Villa Ladies drew Liverpool Ladies at home in the FA Cup fifth round draw.

Hunt was thrilled at the prospect of his team facing the Super League outfit in the last sixteen of the competition.

He called on fans to come and cheer his side on in the clash, which takes place on Sunday March 17 at Boldmere St Michael's.

He said: "What a fantastic draw for the club. We are very excited.

"We've come a long way over the last few years so it will be nice to go in against one of the top sides in the country.

"Liverpool Ladies have been very active in player recruitment over the last few months and look like they are building a good team.

"We have nothing to lose. We'll give it our best shot.

"I'm sure we'll have a massive support on the day, especially as the men's team play on Saturday. We've got a good hard core support but the more the merrier!

"I've spoken to a few of the team and they are excited. It's a huge opportunity for them to show what a good group of players they are.

"After a slow start to the season we've picked up and the last two games have been very promising.

"Sunday's fourth round win over Preston was one of our best performances so hopefully we're picking up our form at the right time."

The game, of course, sees new signing Chloe Jones face her old team.

Hunt added: "It's a great game for her. But Chloe will play the game and not the occasion, I know that.

"She is very professional and has given the group a lift over the last few weeks. We can all see she's a quality player!"
