Preview | Reading FC Women prepare for Madejski match next week

Continental Cup top spot beckons with victory on Wednesday night

10 November 2017

Reading FC Women are gearing up for their first match at Madejski Stadium this season.

Reading FC Women vs London Bees
Continental Cup
Madejski Stadium
Wednesday 15th November, 7.30pm kick-off

Victory against London Bees at Madejski Stadium would send Kelly Chambers' side to the top of their Continental Cup group, and the Royals go into Wednesday's match in fine form.

Summer signing Fara Williams is top scorer with five goals in six matches so far this season, including a goal from the half-way line against former club Arsenal that ended up going viral!

With that victory against Arsenal and a trouncing of Watford in the Continental Cup, confidence is sky-high in the ranks as the Royals go in search of top spot in their group.

Chambers' side also sit third in the WSL1 table as it stands, following a sterling start to the season and a 5-0 rout of Bristol City in their last league match.

However, the loss of England international Jade Moore to a long-term injury will be a concern for the Royals, but they will hope to continue their winning ways in her absence.

Season Ticket holders for both the men's and women's teams can watch the match at Madejski Stadium for free on Wednesday night!

For non-Season Ticket holders, advance tickets cost just £6 for Adults and £3 for concessions, with a £1 price increase for tickets purchased on the night.

It's sure to be an exciting evening of football at Madejski Stadium, and you can buy your tickets here

RFC Women through to Conti Cup quarters thanks to second-half rout

Royals record 4-0 win in front of record Madejski crowd

15 November 2017

Reading FC Women are through to their first ever quarter-final of the Continental Cup, recording a 4-0 win against London Bees at Madejski Stadium in front of a record crowd of 2,248.

The result takes them top of their group, ahead of Arsenal, with two games remaining – and they can’t be caught by third-placed Millwall, who they meet in their last group game.

The Bees put up firm resistance and managed to go into the break goalless – but second-half strikes from Kirsty Pearce, Brooke Chaplen, Rachel Rowe and Rachel Furness condemned the London club to defeat.

Kirsty Linnett was the first to go close – she shot into the side netting early on after some jinking work by Fara Williams.  Then Remi Allen struck from the best part of 30 yards, seeing her shot sail marginally over.

Those were two of the best efforts in a first period where Nicola Hobbs wasn’t overly tested – in fact the visitors could have taken a lead into the interval when Paula Howells broke and fed Lucy Loomes, whose shot was straight at Grace Moloney.

But the Royals struck first through Pearce – it was a delightful low free-kick from Williams on the right flank which the defender was able to delicately flick through the crowd and into the far corner.

And before long, it was two – albeit the decision wasn’t immediately clear.  Furness clashed heads when she attacked Jo Potter’s ball into the box, allowing Chaplen to rise above the goalkeeper and follow in… in the confusion and while head injuries were being treated, eventually it emerged that the goal had been given.

Williams came close to adding a third when she received in space in the left of the box, only to find Hobbs at full stretch to make a save.  But when Rowe received in a similar position, as the ball was worked swiftly upfield, she jinked and lashed in to put the game beyond doubt.

Furness put some sheen on the victory with a goal in the penultimate minute, lashing home with true intent when teed up by sub Tamsin de Bunsen.

Full-time: Reading FC Women 4-0 London Bees
