Wolves Women return for FA Cup clash

Wolves Women will return from their three-month break from action to continue their FA Cup quest – but their long-awaited bid for league success still hangs in the balance.

The women’s game from tiers three to six – categorised as ‘non-elite’ – was halted in December during the latest national lockdown.

But the Women’s FA Cup has been given the green light to return and Wolves’ home second round tie against Nottingham Forest Women is set to take place on Sunday, April 4, after the lockdown restrictions ease on March 29.

Forest play in the division above Wolves, in the National League’s Northern Premier Division.

And a decision on Wolves’ table-topping National League campaign is expected later this month – with boss Dan McNamara desperate for his players to enjoy the crowning moment they deserve.

Wolves, who play at the CKW Stadium in Castlecroft, are leading the way in the Women’s National League Division One Midlands with a 100 per cent record of six wins from six this season.

But they have not been in action since mid-December, where they won an FA Cup tie against Stourbridge Ladies 3-0.
