FOOTBALL fans are invited to come and marvel at the FA Cup at a Romsey club this weekend.

The trophy will be visiting Romsey Town Football Club, Bypass Road, on Sunday, January 26.

Fans will even get a chance to take a picture with the trophy while Southampton Women's Football Club go up against Crystal Palace in the fourth round of Women's FA Cup.

Southampton Women's Football Club first team manager, Aaron Smith, said: "We have worked really hard and this year is the best we have done in our recent history, because since the 80s we have never got this far.

"We are one of the only teams left in Hampshire in the competition and the FA have said this could be a huge game.

"We are up against a professional team and I am hoping there will be 200 people that day who come to watch, as they can take a picture with the cup that is presented at Wembley."

The 40-year-old from Fareham added: "We are really trying to promote women's football and we have done well to get where we are, because last year we got knocked out in the qualifying round.

"I think we are the second lowest ranked team in the competition and Crystal Palace are two divisions above us.

"We also played West Bromwich Albion on January 5 and won three points to one.

"The FA Cup game is worth a lot of money as well because if you win you win the cup you get £20,000 and we have probably made a few thousand pounds from it so far."

Aaron also stressed Sky Sports News are "looking to come down on Sunday" for the match.

The trophy will be on display from 12.30pm to 3pm.

Spectators can buy tickets from Ticket Source for £4 and under 16s can go for free.

Hampshire FA women and girls development officer, Flo Lunn, said: "Hampshire FA are extremely proud to have teams representing them in the FA Women’s Cup Fourth round and this is testament to the incredible work of all the players, staff and volunteers who give up so much of their time to be the best they can be.

"Southampton Women’s have beaten teams in higher divisions on multiple occasions to reach the fourth round and we are wishing them all the best as they face a team in Tier 2 of the Women’s football pyramid.

"The women and girls game is growing rapidly and we urge fans to head down to watch them in action in what will be a fantastic game of football and a great day out for all the family."
