Despite the disappointing postponement of our last fixture, this weekend the team attention turns to the FA Women’s Challenge cup quarter-final.
Bury’s last fixture in this competition against Manchester Laces was awarded as a home walkover. Rochdale gained their place in the quarter final by beating Mancunian Unity Reserves 7-0 last month.
As for form coming into the game, our last fixture was an emphatic 5-1 win against Blackpool FC in the North West Women’s Regional League, with goals coming from Chloe Greenall, Sinead Nugent, Shelby Wolstencroft and Isobel Dooley. The team look to maintain this momentum and progress further in the Cup.
The team look to get back-to-back wins in all competitions and make it through to the semi-final of the FA Womens Challenge cup. Our opposition play in GMWFL, after reforming this season.
The Fixture is to be played on Sunday 12th November at 2.30pm, at Manchester College (Openshaw Campus). With another week of heavy rain predicted, forward planning has enabled us to book this 3G pitch to ensure the game is played. This is also where our mens u23s play their fixtures. It is a modern astro facility with a very good viewing platform, so make sure you get down to support the team.
