First Team Match Preview: Burton Albion Women


View the development match day programme here.

12th September 2021, Kick Off 2pm.

The first team welcome Burton Albion Women in the determining round of the FAWNL Cup. The ladies will be hoping for a change of fortune with attentions away from the league for a week and to turn the good quality performances into a positive result.


The Brewers have started the league campaign very strongly and will be looking to continue their good form into the FAWNL Cup. Having already picked up more points than last season before the curtailment, Burton have definitely strengthened over the Summer and are not looking to stop anytime soon. It will be a fast paced fixture, with the away team hoping to frustrate Bedworth.

Team News 

Freeleigh Parnell is in the first team squad for the first time this season as she looks to battle it out with Emma Dell for the goalkeeping position. Liv Gilbertson will be hoping for her sixth start of the season, alongside Lydia Hackney in defence. Alysha Stanley keeps her place in the squad, with Asya Ali Osman linking up with the development team this weekend.
