Blues Women Manager Dean Vian had this to say: “What a fantastic opportunity it this is for the squad to compete in such a great competition, arguably the greatest.
“I have already told the players they will look back in years to come and be proud they were the first group to represent the club.
“Although we have been given a tough draw against a top quality established outfit in Tranmere, we will do our homework, have them watched and come up with a game plan to beat them on the day.
“Being a local derby and the venue where we also play our home games I hope we can have a big Blues following on the day and hopefully with some luck we can pull off an upset.’’
