Following a run of cup competitions, Charlie Bill’s Women now return their focus back to the FAWNL Southern Premier Division as they prepare to host Billericay Town.
MK Dons Women haven’t participated in a league fixture since November. during this time, the team had booked their place in the County Cup final whilst also being knocked out from the Vitality Women’s Fa Cup, as well as the FAWNL Cup.
Due to their schedule, the Dons have played fewer matches than everybody else within the league, but this weekend they have the possibility to jump three spaces higher than where they currently sit within the table.
This fixture will take place at Fairfield’s Sports Hub, MK11 4BA. Kick-off is scheduled for 2:00pm. Entry to this tie is priced at £3 per adult and £1 for U18s.
Prior to their defeat against Cheltenham Town Ladies, Billericay Town produced a run of five league victories, with the addition of two cup results within that period. This resulted in a seven-game unbeaten streak for this weekend’s opposition.
Their recent success on the field has supported their fifth position within the league table. Dependant on other results within the league, a win for the travelling team could see them rise to fourth.
