Olli Harder's side, who are seventh in the Women's Super League, entered the competition at the fourth round stage, beating Sheffield United 4-1 at Bramall Lane to advance.

They then faced an in-form Reading side in the fifth round, emerging victorious thanks to Dagný Brynjarsdóttir’s extra-time strike. 

The Hammers, who reached the final in 2019, will visit the Goldstar Ground in Felixstowe on Sunday, March 20. The game will kick-off at 2pm.

Town are the last remaining third-tier side in the competition. This is the first time they have ever reached the last eight.
