Women host title-chasers Arsenal this Sunday

Head down to Adams Park to follow the Royals

24 January 2019

While the men’s team have a weekend off because of Bolton’s FA Cup involvement, Reading FC Women have a big game ahead in the FA Women’s Super League as Arsenal visit Adams Park.

So if you’re free this Sunday, head down to High Wycombe for a 12.30pm kick-off when Kelly Chambers’ side welcome the Gunners.

The Royals, currently fifth in the table, are aiming to get back to winning ways in the league.  It was a tough one to take last time our as a double for former Reading player Fran Kirby helped Chelsea to a 4-0 win.  But a 3-2 friendly victory against Dutch side Heerenveen was a welcome result soon after.

Back to competitive, domestic affairs, it’s a very tough test ahead against an Arsenal side that have been running riot this year.

The Gunners lost to Man City in December, and were defeated in their most recent match against Chelsea.  But those are the only blemishes.  They have played 15 other games, and won all of them.

Many of those have been by wide margins – including 5-0 wins against Chelsea and Liverpool.  Our girls were on the receiving end of their good form at Meadow Park back in August as they notched a 6-0 win.

Kelly Chambers’ Reading side finished fourth in the WSL last term, their best ever finish.  Currently fifth, it has been another impressive season to date.

So come along and get behind the side this weekend.  Ticket information can be found by clicking here, or you can pay on arrival at Adams Park.
