Recently relegated Reading FC Women will come up against a familiar face in Tash Harding in the third-round of the Adobe FA Womens Cup.

The draw has pitted Reading against FA Womens National League South Cheltenham Town Ladies, the club that Tash Harding joined a few weeks ago in a player-coach role. Harding played an integral role for Reading in a multitude of positions for six years and only left the club last May.

While Harding is a familiar face, it’s a younger Welshwoman the team will be keeping a keen eye on, as it Phoebe Poole is the top scorer for the Robins with 8 in 13 so far this term.

The game will take place on Sunday 10th December at Kayte Lane, home of Bishops Cleeve FC.

Elsewhere in the draw contains Berkshire interest as Maidenhead United Women will host Watford if they can dispatch Southampton in their delayed second round tie.
