22nd August 2021, Kick Off 2pm.

Bedworth United Ladies welcome Peterborough United Women to The Oval as they look to bounce back from a disappointing opening day result against Boldmere.

After a positive pre-season, Bedworth found it hard to get going and didn’t react to a strong Boldmere side and found themselves on the end of a heavy defeat. They will be looking to right the wrongs going into the game against The Posh, who are experiencing their first season at this level. 

Opposition

After a very difficult 18 months for many of us, Peterborough United experienced the ultimate high at the end of two null and void seasons when their promotion was confirmed into Tier 4. This is the highest position The Posh have found themselves in since being founded in 2015 and they also had a positive pre-season so will be looking to build on that confidence going into Sunday’s fixture. 

Having never played each other before, this game should have all the entertainment that The FA Women’s National League looks to bring week in week out. Bedworth will be looking to bounce back and Peterborough will be looking to start their season strong after their opening game was postponed. 

Team News 

We welcome back Sophie Wilson who was missing from last week’s defeat, as well as our first team manager Paddy Richards. Emma Dell will continue between the sticks, and 16 year old Liv Gilbertson will be hoping for her second start in defence. 

Both Holly Webb and Amanda Whalley come back into the squad hoping to put minor knocks behind them, with Alysha Stanley pushing for her first start in green! Alisha Higginson, Billie Kelly and Mia Darling all miss out on this week’s first team squad, as they will feature for development in a pre-season friendly.
