Huddersfield Town Women FC want to invite football fans down to the Stafflex Arena on Sunday for a big FA Cup tie – and maybe a first taste of women’s football.

It’s Women’s Football Weekend as the men’s Premier League and Championship are on an international break.

Huddersfield Town Women FC take on Sir Tom Finney FC (1.00) and a club spokesman said: “This weekend is a great opportunity for Huddersfield Town fans, unsure about women’s football, to come down and watch the Terriers play and help support their local women’s side.”

Town Women kick start their Vitality Women’s FA Cup campaign with a first round tie against Preston-based Sir Tom Finney FC.

Coming fresh from their 3-2 win against Middlesbrough Women in the League Cup, Huddersfield will be hoping to continue their winning momentum in cup competitions.

However, their opponents will be looking to cause an upset after progressing into the first round proper for the first time in their history.

It was a year to remember for Town last season, as the club equalled their best performance in the competition when they reached the fifth round.

Assistant manager Danny Alogba said: “Cup games are vital for us, and the FA Cup is a fantastic competition to be involved in.

“You can see from the previous winners of the competition the size of the clubs involved just how big the FA Cup is and how much it means to the fans and players alike.

“The chance to be able to compete against the best nationally from all steps is something the club will relish.”


Kick off on Sunday November 14 is at 1pm with turnstiles opening from around 11.30am. Tickets cost £5 for adults and £3 concessions and are available on the gate. Kids go free!

The Stafflex Arena is at Storthes Hall, HD8 0WA.
