BURTON Albion's Women's first team will begin their season with a home game against Doncaster Rovers Belles on Sunday, August 15.

The Brewers will compete again in the FA Women's National League Division One Midlands, the fourth tier of English football.

Following the season opener against Doncaster, the Brewers face away trips to Boldmere St Michaels and Long Eaton United before returning to Rocester to take on Peterborough United at the end of the month.

Albion will also compete against the likes of Leek Town, Solihull Moors, Lincoln City and Sporting Khalsa this season, with their 2021/22 season concluding with another home match against Bedworth United.

Burton Albion joint-manager Tommy Booth says Doncaster will provide the ideal test for the Brewers as they push on into 2021/22.

"It’ll be a big test and we’re not disappointed about it," said Booth.

"They’re what we are thinking will be one of the best teams in the league and testing ourselves against them early on is a positive.

"Wolves were the runaway leaders last two seasons, and them being out of the league changes the whole dynamic - a few fresh teams have come in from the league below and it will be interesting, definitely."

Booth is also excited to take charge of Albion in front of fans - with Season Tickets on sale very soon and costing just £25 to watch the Brewers all season long at Rocester FC!

"We’ve only managed to take charge of a handful of games and none of them had fans," said Booth.

"So to have fans for the first time for us is huge, and I don't think you’ll get much better value than £25 for a season of football, once they're on sale.

"It’ll be huge for the kids and we’d love to see younger girls at our games, cheering us on - if you’re a young family and want to take everyone to watch some football, it's fantastic value.

"We’ve had a couple of sessions now in pre-season and we’ve got our first friendly on Sunday. Hull United AFC are travelling down to play us, which we’re delighted with.

"We have brought a lot of fresh players in and we’ve got quite a bit of interest."
