Posh Women U23s to face Boldmere St Michael’s Development in FA Women’s National League Reserve Cup Determining Round.

Peterborough United Women U23s will begin their FA Women’s National League Reserves Cup on Sunday afternoon (4pm) as they face Boldmere St Michael’s at Trevor Brown Memorial Ground in the determining round.

Posh go into the fixture having drawn their league opener against Wolves Women Reserves last weekend, coming back from 2-0 down to equalise deep into injury time courtesy of a brace from Frankie Pim.

Opponents Boldmere St Michael’s Development are also competing for the first time in the Reserves Midlands Division, but have yet to play competitively this season after their match against Lincoln City Development was postponed last weekend.

Michael Allesbrook will be travelling with a strong squad for this upcoming fixture with Brooke Robinson, Taya Smith, Mia Karagholi and Ella-Mai Bale in contention for their first appearances of the season. 

Frankie Pim will be looking to add to continue her excellent start to the season following her brace in the draw against Wolves in the league opener last weekend. With the first team without a match this weekend, Elloise Copson and Jess Evans will be joining up with the U23s in order to gain important match fitness.

From The Gaffer

“It’s a trip into the unknown this weekend as we don’t know much about Boldmere. We have to prepare to go into the game and expect the best from our opponents and by doing that the players will have a great mindset. Every team goes into a cup hoping to go far. It is the determining round, so it’s essentially a free hit with the teams that lose entering the plate. We all know what can happen in cup games and it can be a really exciting journey. Ultimately, we are there with the aim to progress as far as we can.”

“We started our league season last weekend. I want to see the intensity and belief from the girls in those final 20 minutes and perform at those levels throughout the 90 minutes of all our fixtures. We know what we have to do to be successful at this level."
