Development Team Match Preview: Stoke City FC Reserves


View the match day programme here.

12th September 2021, Kick Off 2pm.

With the First Team at home in the FAWNL Cup, our development side take Stoke City Reserves to Nicholas Chamberlaine School for this fixture. Looking to bounce back from an undeserving loss last weekend, Billy Osborne’s side will be going into the game hoping for a positive result.


Stoke City Reserves will be an extremely tough opponent for the ladies having finished 3rd before the 2020/21 season curtailment. Finishing comfortably top of the table for three seasons running pre-pandemic, the strength of The Potters shines through and having only lost once last season, it will be a difficult task for Bedworth in today’s game.

Stepping in as captain for this weeks game is Mia Darling, who is also playing her last game for Bedworth, until she returns from the North. New signing Hope Mainwaring will be looking for some minutes in today’s game, alongside Sophie Rylance who returns from illness and Ellie Brushett back in the squad. Leonna McCook and Izzy Grindrod look set to start in defence after a successful first game together last weekend.
