As the Women’s World Cup seemed to bring in more fans than ever. The Football Manc Cave have picked out some Greater Manchester-based clubs that you should keep an eye out for this coming season.
Did you know that there were around 10 players from Manchester United women and Manchester City women combined that appeared in the Women’s World Cup?
This proves that there’s a lot of talent that we are responsible for as Manchester football clubs. Now that international football is over, looking at league football is the next step and we have picked out some of the top picks to look out for…
An obvious choice, however, Nick Cushings’ side finished 2nd behind Arsenal, this year they will be out to try and win the league. They also have signed a few players over the summer and one of the biggest names Lionesses, Ellen White is one of those recruited.
They will have a great start to their campaign by hosting Manchester United and this game will be even bigger as it is being held at the Etihad Stadium. A lot of the England women players were also Man City players so if they don’t come back too deflated from the World Cup, they’ll surely come back hungry to win the league.
After only being formed around a year ago, Man United women’s team surprised fans as they gained immediate promotion to the Women’s Super League. Their season could go either way, however, fans hope they will see some fighting football and see Man United stay up in the highest league of English Women’s Football.
So again, their first game will be at the Etihad. They’ll feel a lot of pressure but it should make them a stronger team and give them an insight for the rest of the season.
Salford City Lionesses
If it’s exciting football with big scores that you are looking for then go and watch a Salford Lionesses’ game. They were champions of the Greater Manchester Women’s Football League. Just to give you an idea of their score lines, Sale Women list 7-0 to the Salford side. They also beat the Rochdale Women, 14-2.
There are more Women’s teams in the Greater Manchester area that should be mentioned, however, I feel these three teams will be the ones to impress this coming season.
