Our Women’s team are back in league action on Sunday when they travel to Louth Old Boys Ladies.

The fixture at The Pavillion in London Road kicks-off at 2pm.

Dale Houlston’s side will be looking to make it four out of four start to the season.

Speaking to gtfc.co.uk ahead of the game, the Town boss said: "We will be looking to continue with the momentum we’ve created in the early part of the season. Getting all three points is vital to keep our quest for promotion going. The players will all know that the focus will be on starting brightly and positively, and then keeping that going for 90 minutes.

"I think our confidence is high, but obviously we never take anything for granted. Most people will suggest we are favourites and expect us to win. But expectations and reputations can soon be in tatters if we aren’t disciplined. Disciplined both in the way we want to play the game and in our attitude and effort. But credit to our players, who up until now haven’t given me any room for concern on that score.dale_article.png

"On the injury front sadly Chelsea Brittle is still quite a long way off making a return because of her knee injury. We are now waiting for her to have an MRI scan so we know exactly what’s going on with her knee. Our fear is that it’s a torn meniscus."

Dale continued: "Kelsey Fletcher is a major doubt because of illness this week, so there will be a late decision made on whether she can take part. We are also missing Kirsty Smith this week which is a big loss due to family commitments.

"Saskia Rawbone is recovering well from a less serious injury, and should be fine to play a part in the game. Saskia is an important player for us, she brings so much exciting forward impetus from the middle of the park. So it’s important that we manage her game time carefully until she is fully recovered.

"Chloe Wilkinson will make a return from the illness she suffered last week. She trained well this week and could be in contention for a start. Darcie Proud also returns, having missed out last week as she was committed to an important table tennis tournament at county level.

"There a bit of a decision to make in the back four because of Kirsty’s absence. But I know I can put my full faith in whoever plays in there."

If you are thinking of travelling to London Road, please be aware that there is limited parking and The Pavillion, and also no parking around the access roads too.
