With the FA WSL and Championship opening weekend fixtures revealed at the beginning of August for the 2020/21 season, it wouldn’t be long before FAWNL would follow suit. Fixtures for the first half of the year were revealed today.
Opening weekend will see Maidenhead United Women travel West to play Bath-based side Larkhall Athletic with manager Nev Saroya saying “Larkhall away is a very, very tough game but we are looking forward to the challenge”.
The Magpies have played three pre-season friendlies in the month of August, all away fixtures, taking on Abingdon United, Denham United and most recently Ascot United. Drawing one all with Abingdon, 2-0 against Denham and a 2-2 draw against Ascot United.
Maidenhead also have a Women’s FA Cup fixture to contend with alongside their busy fixture schedule, but see themselves exempt to second round qualifying, where they will make their competition entrance on Sunday the 18th of October.
