BURTON Albion will take on Derby County in the first round of the FA Women's National League Cup following today’s draw!
After defeating Bedworth United 5-2 in the previous round, the Brewers will travel the short distance to take on their local rivals for a place in the second round.
It is sure to be an exciting encounter for the Brewers with many of the team and staff having previously been with the Rams.
Beth Naqwi, Ella Ritchie and Amber-Leigh Denny, among others, all played for Derby early in their careers and they’ll be determined to cause an upset against their higher levelled opposition.
The encounter also means a lot to managers, Tommy Booth and Kristian Gilbert who coached at Derby.
Matches are scheduled for the 7th November, with more details coming closer to the date.
