Wrexham AFC Women have confirmed seven first-team pre-season friendlies as they shape up for the 2021/22 season over the summer.
The team will be competing in the new FAW Tier 2 North League next season, having had their second-tier licence accepted last month.
And, after the 2020/21 season was cancelled due to COVID, the Dragons will be getting back up to match speed with matches every week between now and the end of July.
Luke Wynne’s side get their pre-season preparation started with a trip to Rhyl to take on NFA Women on Sunday June 13.
They then welcome Ellesmere Ladies to Colliers Park on June 20, before visiting fellow Tier 2 North side Airbus UK Broughton Women the following Sunday.
A week later, Wrexham travel to take on Northop Hall Ladies before another away match against a fellow Tier 2 North team, Connah’s Quay Nomads Women, on July 11.
Wrexham’s pre-season preparations finish in Shropshire, with matches against Whitchurch Alport FC Ladies and Shrewsbury Town Women on the final two weekends in July.
Following the granting of their Tier 2 Licence, Wrexham AFC Women are looking to strengthen their squad over the summer too.
With first-class training facilities at Colliers Park, specialist staff and sports therapy, experienced and qualified coaching and a clear club playing identity, anybody interested can email [email protected].
Looking ahead to pre-season, manager Wynne said: “After the frustration of not being able to play regularly last season, we’re looking forward to a busy pre-season schedule.
“We have a good mix of opposition to test ourselves against, to get our existing players back up to speed and to take a look at new players as we strengthen the squad ahead of next season.
“We’ve welcomed new, specialist staff to the team this summer, with sports therapist Gaynor Davies and goalkeeping coach Steve Jones on board, and training at Colliers Park has really started to ramp up, so we’re all excited to get back out onto the pitch properly.”
