England Colleges women’s football team to play in WSL Academy competitions

We are delighted to announce that the England Colleges women’s football team will be part of the WSL Academy Cup and Plate competitions this season.

The ECFA team have been drawn in a two-leg tie against The FA East Region (Ipswich Town FC).

Loughborough College have kindly agreed to host the fixtures, which will be played at Loughborough Dynamo FC on the following dates:

  • Wednesday 30th January 2019 (1pm kick off)
  • Wednesday 6th February 2019 (1pm kick off)

As well as working together with the WSL, these fixtures will form part of our ECFA programme and provide a great platform for players with talent potential to showcase this in an additional environment.

Further fixtures in the competition are dependent on the result and will follow after our trip to Italy to play in the Roma Caput Mundi. If the team gets through there is the possibility of facing the likes of Manchester City, Liverpool, Brighton or Chelsea.
