Clapton CFC will host Margate in the Women’s FA Cup preliminary round after the draw was made today.
The match is set to be the newly-named team’s first competitive game on Sunday, September 1 at the Stray Dog in Walthamstow.
We have received a bye from the extra-preliminary round and so enter at the second stage.
Margate finished second in the South East Counties Women’s League Division One East last season, which is at the same level as we are now joining.
Our team qualified to compete in the FA Cup with promotion to the seventh tier of the game last season when they were AFC Stoke Newington.
Ten wins and we’re at Wembley!
