THIS WEEK we welcomed back our internationals from their training camps.

Bragging rights go to Irish duo Sophie Perry and Grace Moloney as the first game against Wales finished 0-0 but the second fell in Ireland’s favour with a 2-1 victory.

Not like they rubbed it in at all…

It was great to have the girls back this week especially for Titch (Laura-May Walkey) as no one has been able to understand her for a week.

While the girls were battling it out against each other we had another friendly arranged against Bristol City.

Of course an away fixture with Kirsty being the organiser, she’s even having her wedding abroad.

We travelled to Bristol, currently top of the table in WSL 2, so a good test for us with a big week ahead in preparation for Man City away.

We won the game 5-0 with some great individual goals and lots of positives to take from the game.

Now all focus turns to City on Sunday, who were also our last opponents back on August 3.
Women’s football strikes again.

City are coming off the back of a 4-0 win away to Doncaster Belles in the league and a 4-1 victory against them in the cup.

They are currently sitting top of the table and have gone unbeaten all season.

We know we are up against it but we believe in our game plan and hope to get something out of the game come Sunday.

We took great confidence from our home game against them with a slim score-line of 2-1.

We fought well and got ourselves back into the game after going 2-0 down but unfortunately ran out of time to nick a point which would have been a great result for us.

With that being said we are all looking forward to the away trip and our overnight stay in Manchester.

Here’s to hoping I’m not rooming with the skipper (Kirsty McGee) and a good performance to give something for our travelling fans to cheer about.
