[P]enrith AFC Ladies jet off this weekend on their most ambitious venture to date. The Ladies are flying to the Channel Island of Jersey for a 3 match pre season tour as they prepare for the new season. The challenging programme includes a match against the Jersey Ladies team who are current reigning Islands champions.
Manager Simon Savage said “This is going to be tough. I have seen some clips of the Jersey Womens team playing. They are a quality team and we are under no illusions as to how hard the task ahead is.”
Penrith hope that Hannah Fawkes will have recovered from a knee injury in time to play on the tour while Sophie Nutter and Sarah Smith prepared with light training sessions this week as they rested minor knocks.
The Jersey Tour follows on from successful tours to Northern Ireland and Isle of Man the previous 2 seasons.
