BRADFORD City WFC return to league action this weekend as they travel to Chester-le-Street Town hoping to put last Sunday’s narrow cup defeat to Liverpool Feds behind them.

Chester-le-Street’s start to the season closely mirrors City’s with an opening day league win followed by a loss in the FAWNL Cup last weekend.

Captain Zoe Roberts is keen for the team to put last weekend’s disappointment behind them.

She said: “We’ve had a good week training in preparation for the game this weekend and wanting to put things right from last week’s defeat.

"I think we didn’t play as well as we know we can, we’re looking for a reaction from the team in what will be a very tough few matches, we want to make sure we’re making a statement to other teams in the league.”

City follow-up their trip north with a mouth-watering clash with Leeds United on Wednesday, September 4.

The Bantams Women are working in partnership with Bradford City and Leeds United to offer free entry to season ticket holders of both clubs, on provision of their ticket and a form of photo ID.

Eccleshill’s Mitton Group Stadium holds around 2,200 and City will be hoping for a big home support for this derby under the lights.

Off the field the club have signed a ground-breaking deal with American company Keepher Gloves. The Portland-based firm are the first in the world to design and manufacture goalkeeping gloves specifically for females.
