THE FA Women’s National League will be heading to the Pirelli Stadium today.
Burton Albion FC will host the FA Women’s National League Cup Final.
The game sees a clash between two teams who have already secured their respective divisional titles, Crawley Wasps Ladies and Blackburn Rovers Ladies.
Crawley Wasps Ladies recently wrapped up the FA WNL Division 1 South East title, where they have only lost one league match all season.
Their tremendous form saw them reach the 4th round of the SSE Women’s FA Cup, where they proved a stern test for Arsenal WFC. In the league they have won 17 of 19 fixtures, scoring 83 goals and conceding just 8. Next year they will be moving up to tier 3 of the women’s pyramid, in the FA WNL Southern Premier.
Blackburn Rovers Ladies have been one of the most successful teams of the FA WNL in recent seasons, and are current holders of the League Cup. They recently secured the title in the FA WNL Northern Premier with 5 games to spare, and have also reached the Lancashire FA Women’s Challenge Cup Final. In the league they need just 3 more goals to pass their century for the season, having been on red hot form throughout 2018/19.
The game kicks off at 2pm with the ground opening from 1pm.
Admission is £5 adults (which includes a match programme), £2.50 for concessions and £1 for children (under-3s are free).
