Manchester United fought hard for their progression to the semi-final stage of the FA Cup, earning a 3-1 win at Lewes. Victory came at a price, though, with United losing Lisa Naalsund and Maria Thorisdóttir to injury in a game where Scott Booth’s Championship side battled valiantly in front of a buoyant record crowd of 2,801.
Marc Skinner put out a strong squad laced with international stars, displaying the respect worthy of any team that has reached a major cup quarter-final. Lewes may be a comparatively small club, but on the pitch they were far closer to the Women’s Super League title contenders than perhaps many would believe.
