Coalville Town Ladies return to action on Sunday with a Leicestershire Womens Senior League encounter away at Saffron Dynamo Ladies - kick off 2pm.
The Ravenettes last played a competitive game on 8th December, when they comfortably overcame Asfordby Amateurs Ladies 7-0, but they have not been idle over the festive period. A home friendly against Derbyshire Womens Senior League, Holbrook Sports, was followed by training sessions on Sunday 22nd and 29th. New signing from Ashby Ivanhoe, Jess Vale, joined the squad for the first time on 29th, whilst a couple of players with minor injuries/illnesses were asked to rest and recover.
Saffron on the other hand haven't played a league game since 3rd November, when they were beaten 3-0 by Groby Ladies. They have though played a couple of County Cup games during that period. After beating us 7-1 in the first round, they were beaten 14-0 on 24th November by Leicester City Women Reserves, who were later expelled from the competition. Saffron's reward was a third round game against East Midlands Women's Regional League Division One South outfit, Oadby & Wigston, who eventually came out winners by 4 goals to 1.
Both sides will be eager to get off to a good start to the new year, but Coalville, in particular will be looking to hit the ground running, with a big game at AFC Leicester next weekend.
