Winchester City Flyers are this season’s final visitors to 878 Stadium, Burnham this Sunday 23rd February at 2pm, as Wycombe Wanderers Women look to claim their fourth straight victory.
The Chairgirls are using this match as a chance to partner up with Football V Homophobia, an organisation set up to challenge discrimination based on sexual orientation, gender identity and expression at all levels of football.
Wycombe’s stance on discrimination of any kind is a strong one and by partnering up with such a prominent organisation they are keen to push out that message.
The club have released the following statement: “Wycombe Wanderers Women are proud to be shedding light on something we care very much about. It deserves the attention, and we hope that in some way we can help.”
With the side reaching the Semi Finals of the League Cup last Sunday, thanks to a goal from Esmee Sword, momentum is beginning to build; with two games to play and a potential final on the horizon Wanderers will no doubt be looking for a positive finish, with potentially six valuable points that could see them reach fifth in the table.
It was a difficult start to the campaign, but Carl Simon and his team have turned a corner in the last two months and are looking to go out on a high.
Their opponents currently sit bottom of the table but could potentially overtake Wycombe should they win their games in hand. Despite winning just once all season the Flyers still have a fighting chance of survival and could boost their hopes should they win this coming Sunday. The two sides met on the opening day of the campaign with the Wanderers ending up 1-0 winners.
Looking ahead, Wycombe have drawn Ascot United away in the Semi-final of the League Cup which will take place on March 12 at 2PM.
