Wolves Women’s game against Bradford City on Sunday fell victim to a waterlogged pitch at Castlecroft Stadium. However, the Reserves managed to get their game on at Bentley Leisure Pavilion, and put in an excellent performance, running out 4-0 winners against Loughborough Students Reserves.
Goals for Jade Cross, Chloe Dodd (2) and Aimee Higgins cemented Wolves’ fourth consecutive win under new manager Alex Owens and they now sit at the top of the Midlands Reserve League table.
Dodd, pictured, impressed in her debut appearance for the first team in their League Cup victory over Leeds and she will have hoped to have further impressed first team manager Trevor Mullings who was at the Reserve game.
Meanwhile, the first team are still looking for their first league win, and will be hoping for a reversal in fortunes when they entertain Stoke City at Castlecroft next Sunday 20th October.
As part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the game will be dubbed a “pink football match,” with the players wearing pink T-shirts for their warm-up in support of the Pink Ribbon Foundation.
The T-shirts are sponsored by NCP - an official supporter of the Pink Ribbon Foundation.
Susan Winmill, cluster manager of NCP, says: “We’re so pleased to be working with both Wolves and the Pink Ribbon Foundation. We hope that the pink football match will create more awareness for the charity and that people will dig deep for the event. Wolverhampton Wanderers are also partners of ours and have been tremendously supportive of the charity. Fingers crossed the pink T-shirts prove to be lucky for the Wolves’ game.”
The game will be played at Castlecroft Stadium, Castlecroft Road, Wolverhampton, WV3 8NA with a 2pm kick-off.
Admission is £2, Concessions £1 (under 5s free), or £1 for Wolves season ticket holders if you bring your season ticket. NCP staff will be collecting for the Pink Ribbon Foundation at the game.
