Oxford United Women will face Wolves Women at Court Place Farm this Sunday (2pm KO) ahead of a revised pre-season schedule which sees The U’s also face Birmingham City Women Under-21 on Tuesday.
Manager Liam Gilbert said:“We’re in a really good place; the team have come back in fantastic shape and everyone is really looking forward to the new season.
“First of all, I want to say congratulations to Wolves on their recent promotion, they have been excellent so I’m really happy for them. Wolves are a fantastic team; they always give us a good challenge so that’s why we always want to play them. They’ve made some really good signings already and have played some more pre-season games than us, so I have no doubt that they will be in good shape.
“It will be good to see our new signings in action, we’ve done lots of work on the training ground so it will be nice to see how they’ve taken that on board. The attitude of everyone who we have brought in has been brilliant as they’ve fitted in really well with the group.
“With our new signings having experience in the higher leagues, the example they can set will add even more quality to the team.”
It is pay on the gate this Sunday for supporters, with ticket prices for adults £3 and concessions £1, while under-16s go FREE.
