FA Women's Cup specialists OOH Lincoln Ladies were rewarded for the second successive season for their Cup exploits with the E.ON Team of the Round award for their Fifth Round Proper victory.
The side from the Northern Division impressively defeated top flight Nottingham Forest 3-1 to earn themselves a place in the Sixth Round.
Manager Rod Wilson, who led the team to the semi finals last year was delighted. "For a small team like OOH Lincoln to receive the E.ON Team of the Round in the FA Women's Cup for the second year running is very gratifying," he said. "After last year's semi final appearance, we have once again beaten a Premiership side to reach the quarter finals. This is completely due to the hard work and dedication of the players, of whom I'm very proud."
A visit to Chelsea now lies in wait for OOH Lincoln, scheduled for Sunday 22nd February at Imber Court and Wilson is eager to pit his wits against more top flight opposition. "We look forward to playing Chelsea away. We obviously would have preferred a home tie and are under no illusions as to how extremely difficult this tie will be. But we will give it our all and see if we can cause an even bigger upset and once again reach the semi finals."
