Barnet welcome Leeds United to their new home at Underhill on Sunday for their opening match of the season and they plan to make the match a real club event.
"We are a truly integral part of Barnet FC," notes John Taylor, the Barnet FC Ladies Fixture Secretary, "and we are working with the club to make Sunday's match a real club affair.
"The Barnet FC Under-14 boys are playing a curtain raiser against Fulham at 10.30am and a Sunday Roast will be available for supporters to purchase in the clubhouse before the Ladies match.
"We are hoping as many Barnet FC Fans and supporters of women's football will come to the game as possible. Admission will be £2 for adults and £1 for children under-16 and senior citizens."
Barnet manager Tracey Kevins is anticipating the return to Underhill with relish: "The players are really looking forward to playing at Underhill and are in the best possible shape for the first match against Leeds on 28 August," she said.
"We have added some quality players to all our squad during the summer and feel that we can mount a serious title challenge this season. Our form in the second half of last season was excellent and we are keen to carry this over to the new season.
"None of our current squad was with the club last time we played at Underhill. We have trained on the pitch at the ground a couple of times so that our players can get used to the surroundings.
We hope as many Barnet fans will come to our matches at Underhill as possible. The players have really appreciated it when Barnet fans have turned out in large numbers for our big matches in the past. For example, having such good support at the League Cup Final last March really spurred the team on to a memorable win."
Last season Barnet won the FA Women's Premier League Cup as well as reaching the FA Women's Cup semi finals for the second season in succession. The Bees finished in fifth place in their first season in the National Division of the FA Women's Premier League.
