Sunderland Ladies will travel to Arsenal Ladies in the semi-final of the FA Women’s Cup.

After their 3-0 win over Reading Women, the Lady Black Cats face a stern test against Pedro Martinez Losa’s Gunners who beat Notts County on penalties in their Quarter Final.

The tie brings a rematch of the 2009 FA Cup final, in which Arsenal triumphed over a Sunderland side containing several current England internationals.

Ties will be played on the weekend of 16/17 April.
