Here, we take a look at six matches taking place at Boldmere St Michaels...
Durham Women, 14 October, 12pm
Durham Women always provide strong opposition, as Villa found out in three contests last season. Strike duo Zoe Ness and Vicki Gears will be on the prowl for goals when they visit Boldmere for this league clash, which should ensure an exciting game for spectators.

Millwall Lionesses, 4 November, 3pm
Despite experiencing financial toubles last season, the Londoners recorded a third place finish in Villa’s division. However, the Lionesses have since lost their manager and a host of star players as they reshape for another year in the FA Women’s Championship.

Goals are guarenteed when Aston Villa and London Bees play each other, with 14 being scored in the last three meetings between the two sides. Former Villans Destiney Toussaint and Katie Wilkinson will again be in the Bees’ squad when they return to their former club.
Sheffield United, 9 December, 3pm
Today’s opponents return in December for an FA Women’s Championship fixture. The sides will have already met twice, having played their first league encounter in September, and this is Villa’s last league game before the league takes a break over Christmas.
Manchester City, 11 December, 7:30pm
Villa round off the Continental League Cup group stage with their biggest fixture of the competition, taking on last year’s Super League runners-up Manchester City. City’s squad is jam-packed full of England internationals and the likes of Jill Scott, Karen Bardsley and Steph Houghton could feature in the game.
Leicester City, 27 January, 3pm
The Foxes were granted a place in the second tier of women’s football via a successful application when the leagues were reshuffled in the summer. They may be new to this level, but Leicester will provide strong opposition in Villa’s first home game of 2019.
