Burnley FC Women will face Chorley FC Women at the Ruby Civil Arena on Sunday in the last game of the season.
Amanda Cummings from the FA Women’s National League will be in attendance on the day to present the first team with their trophy and medals, as winners of the Division One North league.
It’s been an incredible season for the Claret Women, newly promoted to the league the team have won 18 of their 22 league games and drawn two. With one game to go the squad sit 11 points clear at the top of the table on 53 points.
Burnley FC Women Defender, Sammy Fleck said: “I don’t think it’s fully sunk in yet what we’ve achieved this season and don’t think it will until after our final game on Sunday.
“Of course we enjoyed the celebrations following the win at Crewe when we secured the league, but the following week it was back to training and the focus was to prepare for our next game.
“Although the pressure is off now a little, the mentality of the squad is that we want to finish the season with maximum points. We did that against Newcastle last Sunday, and now we will work hard this week to make sure we finish the season with three more points this weekend.”
It would be great to see as many supporters down at Padiham FC to support the team, all support is very much welcome! There will be a live band in the club house after the game, the itch, so stay and enjoy the celebrations!
