Women Up For The Cup

OUWFC face Hashtag United in FAWNL Cup

29 September 2023

Oxford United Women travel to Hashtag United Women in the first round of the FAWNL Cup on Sunday 1st October.

Kick off is at 3PM at Aveley Football Club, RM15 4PX. 

Tickets cost £5 for Adults, £3 for 12-17s, 65+ and students with a valid ID, and £1 for Under 12s. Children must be accompanied by an adult.

The two sides have already met in the league at Court Place Farm, where the Tags came out as 2-1 victors to end the U’s incredible unbeaten home run.

United look to bounce back after a disappointing result away at Portsmouth in the League last weekend.

Captain Leah Burridge spoke to us ahead of the game

“Sunday was very frustrating for us all, we’re all very disappointed as well, but we've got that bounce back mentality where we re-focus this week in training and we go again.

“I think there were positives to take out of the game still and with the mentality and the work rate that we've got within the squad and the talent going forwards, we just need to make sure we're putting things right in training and we’ve done that this week.

“We’ve got to have that positive mentality going into the next game and take things one game at a time. We've had time to reflect on our performances individually and our team performance now, so now we focus on going into the League Cup and be better.

“Fingers crossed we can get a positive cup run going on Sunday and then we can look back to the league. Again, we focus on one game at a time and we know individually and as a team what we've got to do to put that right.

“We know that the games that we've started off with high intensity, high tempo, we've picked up early goals and we've got the results we wanted. We need to make sure that we start off as best as we can, get an early goal if we can, and then settle into the game because when we've done that we've been a lot better and we've proven to ourselves how good we can be on and off the ball.

“We just need to be positive for 95 minutes throughout the whole game. I think we just need to get focus back onto the basics, the things that we can do well as a team, focus on us, not necessarily opposition, and then really go in fighting.
