Sheffield Drawn Away at Durham in SSE FA Women's Cup Fourth Round

In the hat for the first time this season, Sheffield FC Ladies were the second name out, preceded by FA WSL 2 opponents, Durham WFC.

The draw, which took place live via the FA WSL Instagram page on Monday afternoon has paired up the two sides for the second time in the competition - the teams previously meeting each other at the same stage in 2014, when the Wildcats ran out 3-1 winners at New Ferens Park. 

It'll be the second time Sheffield travel to Durham in February as the two clubs are scheduled to meet in WSL 2 on 22 February, just two and half weeks after their FA Women's Cup tie. 

The sides have already met twice this season, in high scoring encounters: Durham inflicting Sheffield's heaviest league defeat ever (4-0) in the WSL at the Home of Football, with Sheffield exacting some sort of revenge just three days later in the Continental Tyres Cup in which they ran out 5-1 winners on the night. 

The full SSE Women's FA Cup Fourth Round Proper draw is as follows: 


  • Durham v Sheffield
  • Aston Villa v Middlesbrough
  • Sunderland v Derby County or Brighouse Town
  • Keynsham v Lewes
  • Tottenham Hotspur v Doncaster Rovers Belles
  • Liverpool v Watford
  • Cardiff City v Oxford United
  • The New Saints v Chichester City
  • Millwall Lionesses v Coventry City
  • Reading v Birmingham City
  • Plymouth Argyle v Leicester City
  • Brighton & Hove Albion v Manchester City
  • Blackburn Rovers v Charlton Athletic
  • Yeovil Town v Arsenal
  • London Bees v Chelsea
  • Everton v Bristol City

Ties will be played on Sunday 4 February 2018.
