Royals taking on Doncaster in campaign closerReading FC Women are playing their final fixture of their 2016 Women’s Super League 1 season this Sunday, when they meet Doncaster Rovers Belles at 6pm at Adams Park… and you’re invited to attend!
Tickets are available in advance for just £5 Adults, £2.50 Concessions (16 & Under and OAP), and a family ticket of 2 Adults and 2 Concessions for just £12! Tickets can also be bought on entry for £6 Adults/£3 Concessions/£15 family.
So come and lend your support this Sunday and give the side a well-deserved send-off as they head into the winter break. They will be back in action again in February for the FA WSL Spring Series, which will allow the league to transition into winter league for 2017/18.
The season-closer against Donny also includes the End of Season Presentation – 20 minutes ahead of the kick-off, the Manager’s Player, Players’ Player and Fans’ Player of the Season will each receive their awards on the pitch!
It has been a history-making year for our women’s team. After securing promotion to WSL1 a year ago – their first time in the top tier – the main objective was to try and retain their place amongst England’s elite. And they have done exactly that with games to spare. By securing WSL1 place this year, they have guaranteed their spot in the top flight until at least 2018!
That will mean more matches with the best sides in the country – including the likes of Arsenal, Man City, Chelsea and Liverpool. For the moment, the last game of 2016 comes on Sunday against Doncaster – it’s a chance to complete victories home and away against the South Yorkshire side.
Reading FC Women manager Kelly Chambers said: “The girls know how important it is to finish strong and give everything, and I’m looking forward to Sunday’s game against Doncaster Rovers Belles as we have enjoyed a great rivalry with them for the past two seasons.
“We want to make Reading proud of its women’s team – we are already in the top eight in the country and we want to push on now and continue to improve. In many ways, staying up has been the biggest achievement in Reading FC Women’s history.”
