Oxford United Women return to league action on Sunday when they welcome Bridgwater United Women to Court Place Farm for a big game in the Women’s National League.
Bridgwater are one of three undefeated teams in the league this season with three wins and two draws from their five matches putting them up there with the early pacesetters and one point ahead of the U’s.
“It’s still very early to be studying the league table too closely” Manager Liam Gilbert told us. “There is a long way to go but Bridgwater are clearly a good team and it’s going to be a tough game for us.
“We have started the season strongly ourselves and the squad has settled down nicely. We are gong to be without Kayleigh Hines for a while and I said after her injury that we would be looking for people to step up and take their chance in the team- that has already happened and we are in good form so it should be a really good game of football on Sunday.”
New signing Rachel Panting stands by for her league debut after joining from Southampton while top scorer Beth Lumsden will be looking to add to her five goals from four starts so far.
It’s the perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon, watching great football at the friendly surroundings at Court Place Farm.
Admission is just £5 for adults, £3 for over 65s and FREE to Oxford United Season Ticket holders and under 16s.
Kick off is at 2pm
