Whites take on unbeaten opposition
Leeds United Women continue their FA Women’s National League Division One North campaign with a trip to Norton & Stockton Ancients Ladies this weekend.
Rick Passmoor’s side are looking to extend their winning run to three games, after responding to defeat at Barnsley with back-to-back home wins over Stockport County and Middlesborough.
Sunday’s hosts are one of two unbeaten teams in the division after four games, table toppers Barnsley are the only side to have won four from four, Norton & Stockton sit 6th after drawing three and winning one so far.
For supporters wishing to attend, the game kicks off at 2pm at Norton Sports Complex, Station Rd, Norton, TS20 1PE. Admission prices are £3 for adults, Children go free.
Alternatively, we will have live updates and a match report right here on leedsunited.com and highlights will follow on LUTV.
Player to watch:
Bianca Owens is joint top of the division’s scoring charts after netting four of her side’s seven so far this season.
Owens was also on target twice against Leeds last season so she is definitely one the Whites defence will have to keep a close eye on.
