Burnley FC Women Look To End On A High

Trophy presentation at final game of the season for the champions

2 May 2019

Burnley FC Women face Chorley FC Women at the Ruby Civil Arena on Sunday (KO 2pm) in their last game of another triumphant season.

Matt Bee's side has secured back-to-back promotions and will go up as champions of the FA Women's National League Division One North.

And Amanda Cummings from the FA Women’s National League will be at the game to present the first team with their trophy and medals.

It’s been an incredible season for the Claret Women, winning 18 of their 22 league games and losing just twice since moving up to a higher level.

With one game to go, the squad sits 11 points clear at the top of the table on 53 points.

Defender Sammy Fleck said: “I don’t think it’s fully sunk in yet what we’ve achieved this season and don’t think it will until after our final game on Sunday.

“Of course we enjoyed the celebrations following the win at Crewe when we secured the league, but the following week it was back to training and the focus was to prepare for our next game.

“Although the pressure is off now a little, the mentality of the squad is that we want to finish the season with maximum points.

"We did that against Newcastle last Sunday, and now we will work hard this week to make sure we finish the season with three more points this weekend.”

Burnley FC Women would like to thank all supporters for their backing this season and look forward to seeing as many as possible at Padiham on Sunday. All support is welcome.

The address for Padiham FC’s Ruby Civil Arena is 16 Well Street, Padiham, Burnley, BB12 8LE.

Entrance to the game is £2 for adults, free for children.
