As part of their 25th Anniversary celebrations Derby County Ladies FC are proud to announce that reigning WSL champions, Liverpool LFC will be visiting the Anderson Electrical Arena on Wednesday 4th February to take on our first team in a prestige competitive friendly fixture. On Wednesday 25th February 14 times champions and probably the biggest name in women’s football, Arsenal LFC will arrive to complete what are seen as two mouth watering games within three weeks.
Chief Executive Duncan Gibb feels that the games will prove attractive to differing types of supporter. ” On one hand we hope to see a number of schools and junior clubs present with youngsters looking to enjoy the opportunity to see household name players that can hopefully inspire them within their own playing, On the other hand we also hope to see supporters of the male game who may have seen the odd game on TV, who think ” it looked pretty decent on the box, it’s a Wednesday night, i’ve very little on and these players are in my own back yard…. where’s my coat ! “. Regardless of where the support comes from we hope that spectators come away having enjoyed a favourable experience and a desire to come down to our FA Women’s Premier league fixtures.
