City Women Enjoy Failand Training Week

Vixens make full use of Failand Training base whilst Bristol City men are away in La Manga. 

City Women have been making the most of the Bristol City facilities this week as they prepare to take on London Bees on Saturday, July 23rd (KO 6pm). 

"Its great to be here and just another indication of how close we work together with men's team," said head coach Willie Kirk. 

"Its a great facility and we are delighted to be able to have the opportunity to train here this week."

A draw last week against Durham has left the vixens feeling frustrated as they remain in second place in the league, behind local rivals Yeovil.

"We feel we could have taken maximum points away from the game and we have been working hard on our final third play to try and secure a win this weekend," Kirk added. 

"What we are finding is teams are sitting in a lot and we are finding it hard to break through to score.

"Here at Failand, we have been working on ways to move teams with quick switches and passes."

Tickets for Saturday's game (6pm kick-off) are available online here or in cash on the gate.
