This bit of news was hidden in one of your other items, David .

"Northern Ireland's first group match in the UEFA Women's European Qualifiers is against England on Sunday 13 May. The match will be held at League One Club Gillingham's ground, Priestfield Stadium."

First news I've heard of the venue.

Gills set to host England qualifier

Gillingham’s Priestfield is set to once again host international football this year, after the England Women’s team confirmed they would play a UEFA European Championship qualifying match in May.

The Medway ground will host England v Northern Ireland on May 13 – following on from the successful hosting of a Women’s World Cup qualifier last April.

In that game, England thrashed Austria 4-0 en route to securing a place in the finals in China later this year in front of more than 8,000 fans.
