Home Sweet Home: Upcoming Fixtures
The lowdown on Aston Villa Ladies’ upcoming fixtures at our home ground, Boldmere St Michaels FC.
Aston Villa Ladies have a number of big games between now and the early throws of 2019 as they compete in the FA Women's Championship and Continental League Cup.
Here, we take a look at six matches taking place at Boldmere St Michaels...
Sheffield United, 9 December, 3pm
Sheffield United visit 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, 13 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.
Charlton Athletic, 20 February, 7:30pm
Charlton Athletic are another new team making a step up in the FA Women’s Championship this season, but the Londoners should not be underestimated. The Addicks signed former Villa striker Elizabeta Ejupi in the summer and she’s likely to be spearheading their attack when they visit Boldmere.
Tottenham Hotspur, 12 March, 7:30pm
Spurs have been the surprise package of the FA Women’s Championship so far this season, beginning the campaign with five straight wins. Led by deadly striker Rianna Dean, Tottenham promise plenty of action in each game they play.
Lewes, 21 April, 3pm
Newly promoted Lewes have had a mixed start to the season, producing high scorelines and exciting football in their first eight games, which have seen over 30 goals fly in. The south coast side will provide an entertaining spectacle when they visit Boldmere.
