CFCW Preview: Hindley Women (a)

    Chester FC Women return to action this weekend, following the Christmas break as they make the short trip away to face 9th place Hindley Women.

    The Blues recorded a sensational seventh league victory in a row last time out following a hard thought 4-2 win against Mossley Hill.

    A sublime hat-trick from Seals forward Molly Wood and a fine individual effort from Charlotte Randles ensured Chester took maximum points for the seventh game in a row. The win cemented Chester in 2nd place in the table, with then remaining six points behind leaders Wythenshawe.

    Sunday’s hosts Hindley come into this weekend’s game on the back of a four game losing streak, with their most recent win coming back in late September. They currently find themselves in 9th place in the table.

    Chester claimed all three points when the sides met in the reverse fixture in early October, a rampant Blues side recorded an impressive 6-1 win. The win ended Hindley’s four match winning sequence.


    Kick off is 2pm on Sunday afternoon is at Hindley Juniors FC, Park Lane, Hindley, WN23RU.

    Entry is free for all supporters.


    ● Chester’s only defeat on the road so far this season, came in an opening day 2-0 defeat at Poulton Vics.

    ● Blues forward Molly Wood grabbed four goals in the reverse fixture.


    “We’re looking forward to get getting back into the swing of things. Before Christmas we had many games called off and that showed in our performances add to that our fairly long injury list but the strength in depth we have here has been proven once again.

    “In our last game it was great to see Kerry Morris get through a full game with us. She’s been very unlucky with injuries in the first half of the year, so we’re all made up for her. She’ll be really important to us as the season goes on. Also Evie Halliwell and Jenni Riley more than playing their part with Sarah Redman; who’s been so reliable for us this year wherever she has played.

    “This year we want to continue our development. Anyone that’s come to see us on a regular basis will see the standard of our performances have been very high. But for this group, that’s not enough. We talk a lot about intensity and development and that’s something that’s not just said, it’s lived within the team. With that we know we’ll have a successful 2024.”
