Oakham United Ladies visit the Mander Cruickshank Stadium on Sunday as a relatively unknown quantity. Established over the Summer, as part of a number of new initiatives at the club, Oakham have entered the Leicestershire Women's League for the very first time.
Coalville's preparations have been good, with two wins and a draw from their three preseason games. Their first competitive game of the season though resulted in a heavy defeat last week in the preliminary round of the FA Cup. East Mids Regional North Division side Hykeham Town proved exactly why they are title favourites with an accomplished display.
Sunday though will be a different challenge and both sides will be looking to get off to a good start to their respective league campaigns.
