Bridgwater set to face Man United

Bridgwater United are gearing up to take on Barclays FA WSL high fliers Manchester Utd in the Fourth Round of the Vitality Women’s FA Cup on Sunday.

The FAWNL Southern Premier Division side were handed a plum home draw after beating Crystal Palace 1-0 in the previous round and they announced this week that the tie at Fairfax Park is officially sold out with all 2,500 tickets having been snapped up, more than double the current record attendance at the ground.

Bridgwater United Community Sports Trust are delighted to announce that Sunday’s massive Vitality Women’s FA Cup match versus Manchester United will feature The Community Fan Zone.  This area is open to all fans in attendance will be situated in the College Sports Zone Car Park, opposite their 3G pitch.

Opening at 10.30am (car park opens at 10am), fans will have the opportunity to enjoy the activities before heading into the ground to enjoy the match!

Activities include:

The Costa Coffee will be open, which is located in the adjacent Bridgwater & Taunton College building to the Community

The club encourages all fans who are coming to enjoy the match, to extend their fan experience by visiting the Community FanZone on their way into the ground. Fans are also able to access the ground via an additional turnstile located near by the Community FanZone providing access to the ground from the college car park.

Bridgwater have strengthened their squad in recent weeks with the arrivals of Georgia Evans from Keynsham Town, Holly Chandler from Coventry Utd and Daisy Ackerman on loan from Arsenal, although they will be cup tied for Sunday’s game.

Defender Amy Goddard told Women’s Soccer Scene: “This is a fantastic occasion for the club and the town. To welcome a club with the stature of Manchester United to Bridgwater has put Women’s Football and Vitality Women’s FA Cup in the spotlight that is really great news for not just us as a club but for the game as a whole. To play in from of a sell out crowd at home, which breaks all of the club’s records, will be a moment we will all remember for the rest of our lives."
