The side reached the last four at the end of February with a thrilling 26-24 victory over Barnsley, with Hill hoping for a repeat performance this weekend: “It’s really exciting and it’s a huge game for us”, she said.

“Playing Barnsley in the last round and coming back from 19-7 was a great achievement but we want to progress to the final.”

Kenilworth, who are top of the Women’s National Conference Midlands One, will have to be at their best against a Bury St Edmunds side who are playing in an equivalent league and pushing for promotion themselves.

“We’re hoping we can show our team spirit and put in a good team performance on Sunday,” added Hill.

“We said that the result against Barnsley didn’t matter, but obviously everyone wanted to win.

“It is a big game and it is exciting but we’ll do what we’ve done in every other game throughout the season and we’ll stick to the same routine.”
