Jeanfield general manager Steve Grossi said: “When the cup was seeded, we really wanted a home tie and are delighted to get the chance to welcome a team with the European stature of City. This will allow our girls to test themselves against a side full of international players.
“It is mark of the level we now play at that we are up against a team like City and it is a huge deal for women’s football in the area to have them come here.
“We are now hoping to showcase the team and the club positively in this fixture.”
DUSC Girls U/11s won all three of their games at a festival in Dalgety Bay. The youngsters did well in inclement weather conditions.
