Unfortunately, the club are unable to have spectators at the moment but you can keep an eye on the result via Chichester & Selsey Ladies' social media channels.

Possible opponents in the third round for the ladies are Hounslow or Leyton Orient away, with a possible Super League clash away to West Ham United awaiting the winner in the fourth round.

Chichester & Selsey Ladies' league has been finished early because of Covid-19 and no relegation is taking place.

There are currently discussions with the FA about possible promotion for teams in tiers 3-6 but this is yet to be confirmed.

The club were having a great season at the time, winning many games and having a competitive season, but Chichester & Selsey Ladies understand that there would not have been enough time to complete all league games.

The ladies are back at training the week commencing March 29 to get ready for their FA Cup games.

The club has decided to give football to all senior players until the end of May, meaning friendlies for both the first team and development squad will take place between April and May.

The club's youth teams leagues have all confirmed that they are going ahead again, with a few changes to the structures, to give girls the opportunity to play football until the end of June.

Chichester & Selsey Ladies have under-10s, under-12s, under-14s and under-16s sides and if you wish to know more please contact Chair Sam Ashton at [email protected]

The club would like to take this opportunity to thank all of their sponsors for sticking with them throughout this difficult time.

Without them returning to football would have been harder.

Chichester & Selsey Ladies hope that when next season starts they will finally be able to welcome everyone back to watch.
