Villa Ladies: 2016 fixtures announced

Villa Ladies start their 2016 journey in the Women's Super League 2 in March.

Ron Mellor's side travel to Everton Ladies on the opening day [Wednesday March 23, kick-off 7.30pm] , which should prove to be an exciting opening to the campaign.

A last-gasp Livi Fergusson header earned the claret and blues a point in their visit to Widnes last season while the Birmingham side suffered a narrow 2-1 home defeat in the first fixture of 2015.

Mellor - working alongside highly-respected head coach Joe Hunt - will be eager for a top campaign for the claret and blues, after impressing greatly in their two previous seasons, where they finished fourth and fifth.

It is somewhat of a new-look squad, with incomings and outgoings.

Katie Wilkinson is among a host of players already signed up for the 2016 WSL 2 season.

Last season's top-scorer is joined by 2015 stars Beth Merrick and Elisha N'Dow alongside breakthrough duo Mollie Rouse and Amy West.

The claret and blues are also boosted by the news that Sarah Mayling and Kerri Welsh - who both missed the majority of the 2015 campaign with ACL injuries - have also committed their futures to the club.

And, don't forget, Villa Ladies are back in competitive action next month - they face Portsmouth at Sutton Coldfield Town on Sunday February 7.
