Preview: Eastern Region Women’s Football League

Football returns for the Ladies today as an almost full schedule is on for the Eastern Region Women’s Football League. Luton Town are in FA Women’s Cup action so Harlow Town are without a game on Sunday but there is still plenty of action to be had.

Bedford Ladies vs Haringey Borough Women 

Bedford will welcome Haringey Borough to The Eyrie on Sunday in an important game at the bottom. Bedford are sat in 10th after 6-games, having won 1, drew 1 and lost 4 while Haringey find themselves 11th after 6-games with the exact same record. Both sides will be hoping for a victory on their return with a win for either side taking them as high as 6th and away from the bottom of the table.

Colney Heath Ladies vs Wymondham Town Women 

Colney Heath will host Wymondham Town at the Colney Heath Recreation Ground. Colney find themselves 5th after 5-games, having won 3 and lost 2 whilst their opponents are in 1st place after 7-games with 6-wins and 1-loss. Wymondham will hope to extend their lead at the top but will face a tough test against Colney. A win for the away side could see them extend their lead over Peterborough to 9-points while a win for the hosts could see them rise to 2nd in the table.

Royston Town Women vs Wroxham Women

Royston Town will welcome Wroxham to Garden Walk on Sunday. The Crows are sat in 9th-place after 3-games with a record of won 1, drew 1 and lost 1 whilst Wroxham are 6th after 4-games, having won 2, drew 1 and lost 1. Both sides have plenty of games in-hand but will hope their first back is a victory to boost their points total. A win for Royston could take them up to 6th whilst Wroxham could find themselves in 3rd on Sunday evening with a win of their own.

St Ives Town Ladies vs AFC Dunstable Women 

St Ives Town will welcome AFC Dunstable to Westbury Road. Darren Marjoram’s ladies are 3rd in the league after 6-games, with 3 wins, 1 draw and 2 losses whilst Dunstable are sat in 7th after 7-games, having won 2 and lost 5.

Bowers & Pitsea Ladies vs Peterborough Northern Star Ladies 

Bowers & Pitsea welcome Peterborough Northern Star to the Len Salmon Stadium on Sunday. Bowers find themselves bottom of the league after 7-games, having won 1, drew 1 and lost 5 whilst Peterborough are 2nd after 6-games, having won 4 and lost 2. Although both sides sit at opposite ends of the table, it will be a tough game for both sides with the hosts already beating top of the table Wymondham. A win for Bowers could lift them off the bottom and as high as 6th while Peterborough could close the gap to 3-points on leader Wymondham with a win.
