Women's Old Trafford game: Free programme
Saturday is a big day in the short history of Manchester United Women, with Casey Stoney’s Reds lining up at Old Trafford for the very first time, to take on West Ham United.
“It’s an important moment for the team,”writes Stoney in her match programme column ahead of the WSL meeting (kick-off 11:30 GMT).
“I’m sure you fans are massively disappointed to miss out on it, but the way I see it is that hopefully this is just a dress rehearsal for what’s to come. We can play without expectation from the fans – but then we do it again. And next time we make sure we get a record crowd for a women’s game in this country, because if any club can do that, it’s this club.”
Top of the billing inside the publication is an exclusive five-page interview with Christen Press, as the double World Cup-winning American reflects on an unusual first six months in Manchester, the
“special history”she senses whenever she visits a big European stadium, plus how her team-mates
“have done a good job of giving me a British education”… with beans on toast and the occasional Sunday roast seemingly on the syllabus!
In her captain’s column, Katie Zelem – a childhood Red and youth-team graduate – writes of her immense pride in the team taking to the hallowed turf of Old Trafford, while any keen stattos can rejoice in three pages of some serious number-crunching, which covers the 2020/21 campaign to date.
