SORRY BOTH GAMES HAVE BEEN CALLED OFF DUE TO BAD WEATHER. This was Coach Lane on Sunday morning.
NUWFC Women’s First Team are in League Cup action while the Reserve team match against Derby in the League has just been postponed (Sat am) due to bad weather / pitch conditions.
Newcastle United Women’s Football Clubs First Team welcome Leeds United Ladies Football Club to the Northumbria University Coach Lane on Sunday in the FAWPL Cup. The FAWPL Cup is a great break from the league and give NUWFC the chance to play teams they would not normally play. Leeds are currently sitting second in the FAWPL National Division having had a great start to the season.
Although Nottingham Forest took all three points in last week’s game NUWFC were pleased at their improved performance and disappointed that they allowed Nottingham to steal the points.
NUWFC First Team Captain Sarah Wilson said “This Sunday we welcome Leeds, a team battling out to win the National Premier league. The league cup is an exciting opportunity to test ourselves against teams from a higher division. We haven’t had a great run in the cup however we know that we can do ourselves justice, we proved that against a very strong Sunderland side.

NUWFC Reserve Team – SORRY MATCH POSTPONED !
The Reserve team take to the road and are heading to Derby this Sunday in the FAWPL. Both NUWFC and Derby have struggled to collect points this season but both teams have been playing some excellent football.
NUWFC Reserve Team Manager Gary Appleton said ” On our travels this week for the long journey to our skippers home town of Derby a fixture in which we will be trying our best to bring some much needed points back home with us. If we can keep the level of performances to a standard we have shown in the last 4 games and especially the overall team performance of last week we have every chance of not just achieving a good performance but also getting a result combined with a good performance. Again as with every week we will be putting maximum effort in at training with the coaches again having to decide the best squad for the journey with all the players wanting a place in the first 16. This is a good position for the club and coaches to be in and the commitment and determination of this squad to do well is quite evident by the large numbers we have to training every week and also the application of what they are learning to try and be included in the team on match days.
NUWFC Reserve Team Captain Amy Perch said ‘This weekend the Reserves make the long trip down to my hometown, Derby. The mood in camp this week has been excellent and after last Sundays gutsy performance the players will be going into the game with high expectations. We know that on current form, nothing but a win will do. We have to start turning performances into points.’
