Over seven months have passed since the last competitive game of football for our women’s team.
This Sunday sees the return of SWPL1, with the women of steel traveling to take on Forfar Farmington. Kick off is at 2pm.
Tale of the tape
The sides met twice before the Covid-19 pandemic brought a halt to action.
Motherwell were victorious in the first game at Station Park in SWPL1, before Forfar took the win in the SWPL Cup group stage.
Shaping the squad
The bulk of the team which started the aborted 2020 campaign has been retained by manager Eddie Wolecki Black, with further additions made.
Setting the tone
“Our expectations remain the same from earlier in the year,” manager Eddie Wolecki Black said.
“We have players with top-flight experience, players who have been across the course with us before, and some young talent.
“The early weeks of the season will give us the chance to build momentum and see where it takes us, in a league which has grown massively in strength.
“We won this fixture at the start of the failed season, so we are capable of doing the same again.”
