The Belles are looking to build more momentum in cup action as they host Mansfield Town in the third qualifying round of the FA Cup on Sunday, October 22 (2pm).

The game will be held on the main 3G pitch on the Eco-Power Stadium site after the surface at the Iqbal Poultry Stadium was left unplayable from the impact of Storm Babet. 

Interim manager Shaun Hird will lead the Belles into this season’s competition off the back of an impressive 8-0 victory last time out against FC Manton of Worksop in the Sheffield and Hallamshire FA Cup. 

The Belles boast a proud history in the competition, having lifted the cup on six occasions and finished runners-up on a further seven occasions. 

Their first round of the season presents the challenge of East Midlands Women’s Premier Division side Mansfield, who beat Kettering Town in the previous qualifying round. 

Mansfield travel on the back of a 13-1 thumping of Basford United away from home in the County Cup. 

In the league the Stags sit in fifth place, having won two of their four games and losing the other two. 

Mathilda Evans leads Mansfield’s goalscoring charts with two in all competitions. 

The Belles however will be full of confidence after last weekend’s win where Katie Yates, Izzy Gigg, Shelbey Morris, Mollie Barlow and Jess and Lindsey Tugby-Andrew all got on the scoresheet. 

Last season, the Belles claimed a 7-1 win against Leicester City at the same stage. 

Tickets for the game are priced as follows:

Adults £4
14-17 £3
13 & under £1

Please note, as a cup game, entry is not included for season ticket holders.

Parking for the game will be available in limited numbers.
