Jersey Play At Bramall Lane Tomorrow

Sheffield United Ladies to host Jersey FA Rep Team at the ground of the League One club on Sunday 23rd April, kick-off 12pm.

Jersey FA Vice President Iain Mackenzie said; “We are delighted to announce this fixture against Sheffield Utd Football Club. This is a unique opportunity for our ladies to play in a historic stadium against quality opposition.”

Jersey FA Women’s interim Head Coaches Daniel Seviour and Jodie Botterill will be taking the team for the match against Sheffield United on Sunday.

Botterill said; “We are looking forward to the challenge of playing against Sheffield United. We are aware that they are a strong team, who have recently been promoted from their current league. It will be great experience to travel to an away fixture as preparation for the Island Games. The squad have been looking strong in training and are motivated for the fixture.”

Sheffield United Coach Lee Walshaw said; “We’re looking to climb the pyramid at this end. The ladies have played one game there this season and have done pitch walks at half-time during first-team games. There’s also a full page in the first-team’s programme at every home game.”

The Jersey FA Squad: Eve Watson, Sara Luce, Lauren Quemard, Ciara Giles, Sylvia Spinola, Michelle Bichard, Ella Brennand, Leanne Le Feuvre, Holly Muirhead, Megan Wood, Natasha Keen, Jodie Botterill, Rosie Corbett, Lara Couvert, Sophie Botterill

Is Barnsley really in the North-East, is Sheffield (United) really in the East Midlands?

Not really, but next season it won't matter: they'll both be in the WPL. They won promotion at the weekend, well done to them.

WPL Division 1 if we're being technical.

Manchester United may be hypocritical and increasingly irrelevant, but FC United of Manchester have been punching above their weight. Currently competing in the North West regional Division 1 (South) :o with a 2nd-place finish, FC United also reached the final of the Manchester FA County Cup, and won it 5-1 against City of Manchester from the division above.

part of the beauty of geographically based leagues and promotion/relegation; same happens in men's leagues

It's the choice of wording that's a bit odd - those are geographical areas that don't include Yorkshire. I'm sure most Yorkshire teams don't describe themselves as North East or East Midlands clubs.

The men's level 9 to 10 go with something different, "Northern Counties East", which is a mouthful but a bit more inclusive.

Regional league and cup doubles for Haringey Borough and Leyton Orient, who've been seen on this forum several times.

Both teams are going to play in level 4 (WPL Division 1) in 2017/18.

Also news from the North West and North East:

A story from last month - Kidderminster Harriers won promotion in their first season since reforming, and they won the league cup too, in the Midwest Counties League. They'll join tier 6, the West Midlands Regional Div 1, in 2017/18:

Harriers are expanding, with a reserve team in the league they've just left (Midwest Counties), which also has some new teams. Info and fixtures here:
