#WomensFACup Prelim Rd: Three former finalists on Road to Wembley

Women's FA Cup logo

The Women’s FA Cup may only be at the Preliminary Round stage but includes three teams who have previously reached the final, albeit under former guises.

Notts County played in the first Wembley final in 2015 and the now East Midlands League 1 South side visit Rise Park from the division above.

Fulham were runners-up in 2001 but now in the London & South East Premier but have a one-tier advantage over visitors New London Lionesses of the Greater London League.

Millwall Lionesses were winners in 1991 and again six seasons later, however, the summer breakaway of London City Lionesses has resulted in Millwall dropping into the sixth tier. They have been accepted into Eastern League Division 1 South and on Sunday visit Surrey-based Whyteleafe who play one step up higher.
