Brentford Women vs Clapton CFC preview: Tough first pre-season friendly for women’s first team

If you’ve wondered why the women’s first team has been quiet compared to the men’s first team, the season starts three weeks later so pre-season has been later too.

But they’re now back in action with a tough trip away to newly-promoted Brentford Women on Sunday, August 1 as they gear up for the September 5 league start.

It was honours even last season, firstly beating the Bees 3-1 on a muddy Stray Dog pitch in front of 125 spectators, thanks to goals from Emily Link, Caps Riom and Annie Lyons.

Then on the final day of the season Brentford won 2-0 behind closed doors, a result which meant they snatched second place in the league from CCFC.

The Bees were promoted, like their male counterparts, so in the absence of a league clash, a friendly will be a very good test.
