Dan Lawlor Watching

Posh Women set to face The Crows on Wednesday evening.

Peterborough United Women will travel to Gardens Walk on Wednesday evening (7:45pm) as they face Royston Town Women in their latest pre-season friendly as part of preparations for the FA Women’s National League Division One Midlands.

Dan Lawlor’s side claimed their first victory of pre-season on Sunday afternoon after a 2-0 victory over Norwich City Women, with goals from Katie Middleton and Rosie Axten in the second half. Posh are at the backend of their season preparations with games against Cambridge United and Leicester City U21s also set to take place before the opening game against Northampton Town on 20th August.

Royston Town Women compete in the Eastern Region Women’s Football League and finished eighth last season. The Crows began their pre-season programme with a 3-3 draw with MK Dons Women Development Squad.

Team News

Defender Lucie Mugridge is set to return to the squad after missing the first four games of pre-season, while Keir Perkins and Evie Driscoll-King are also set to be involved once again, with Lawlor close to a full squad available at his disposal.

Zaiga Làcìte, Eden Bailey and Jess Evans all remain unavailable for the fixture against Royston Town, with the latter recovering well since suffering a fractured shoulder in the game against Wolves Women.

From The Gaffer

“We were pleased to pick up our first win of pre-season to help build some momentum, but we all know that our performance was still below standards and I know we can do better. We have struggled with a few injuries and other commitments in our last few fixtures, but that is expected to happen when you begin the schedule with two high-intensity games against Wolves and Ipswich Town. The game will be about getting more minutes in the players' legs and start incorporating our playing style, and that will be a good start against a physical, challenging side in Royston Town.”

Supporters can pay on the gate for Wednesday's game. Tickets are priced at £2 for adults and concessions and £1 for under 18s.
