Oxford United Women face Gillingham at home on Sunday in the FA Women’s National League with the game being dedicated to Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Entry to the match will be FREE (2pm)
United Women will be looking to continue their excellent form, having scored 27 goals in their last three matches. Entry to the game on Sunday is FREE but we urge supporters to put what they would usually pay for entry towards bucket collections for local charity Against Breast Cancer who will be around the ground throughout the afternoon.
The match will be played at Court Place Farm on Sunday (OX3 0NQ) and with the match being FREE entry, why not bring the family down for an afternoon of football? Kick-off is at 2pm.
Alongside the first team this weekend, United Women will also wear pink warm up tops to show support towards Against Breast Cancer. First Team Manager Liam Gilbert told us:
“The whole club is supporting Against Breast Cancer which is a local Abingdon-based charity. There were interviews earlier in the month with a couple of our players and it’s amazing to see how much it means to them to support this. The men will wear warm up tops on the Saturday, the girls will do exactly the same on the Sunday and then the shirts will be auctioned off with all profits going towards the charity.
“Admission is on a donations basis, there will be bucket collections, people with information on how to support the charities and what they do. We also have a special programme with proceeds going towards the charity. It’s a subject that is so close to a lot of us and we really want to get behind it as much as we can.”
Stay tuned for full details on how you can bid for the signed shirts. We will have information right here on the club website and across our social media channels in due course.
United will be without club captain Lauren Haynes as she begins her recovery from injury, whilst Cat Beaver will be monitored ahead of the game after being forced off after ten minutes with a calf strain on Wednesday against MK Dons.
A full special edition pink matchday programme is available at the turnstiles. We have put the price up to £1.50 with the extra 50p being donated towards the charity. The programme contains the latest news from Oxford United Women, the thoughts from First Team Manager Liam Gilbert, an open interview with Georgia Clifford on the topic of breast cancer and much more.
