THE HARLOW Ladies football team need your support.
This is a very challenging season for them. They are now playing in a very competitive league which is a real challenge for them.
Last Sunday, they showed real heart (and real talent) by coming back from three goals down to win 4-3 against Norwich City.
They enter the Vitality FA Cup in the Third Qualifying Round.
Once again, they are playing Norwich City.
They are now entering the FA Cup four rounds later than they did last season. A might challenge.
The Ladies could do with a twelfth man, so please come along to the game.
Change name to HARLOW WOMEN
@Bruce Downey What's the difference? Why is Women preferable to Ladies?
AN/ Lady is a woman but not all women are ladies. Some women are insulted by the term ladies. Look at WSL for inspiration.
@Bruce Downey Interesting. Can't say I'd really thought about it much, but I notice that most of the teams in the WSL have changed to Women. Still a few Ladies teams in the Championship though. This is the closest thing I could find to the rationale behind it - https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-37552890. 5 years out of date now, but seems like most of the players at the time didn't mind either way.
