13. Long Eaton United v Nuneaton Town

This will be one of the shorter match previews that I write, seeing as we already know that the game will not be played and that Long Eaton, of the FA Women’s Premier League Midlands Division One, will progress to the second round.

After only a single season playing under the name Nuneaton Town (prior to which they were known as Copsewood (Coventry)), the Women’s Premier League Northern Division side were unfortunately forced to withdraw from the league and close their doors permanently shortly before the start of this season. They had entered the FA Cup prior to them folding however, which explains their presence in the draw.

My prediction: Well, I think even I couldn’t get this one wrong!
