With the FAWSL this year switching from the summer to a more traditional September-May schedule, the Spring Series will bridge the gap until the start of the new league season.

The competition will be played from February to May and will see each side play each other once.

Emma Coates’ side go to Sheffield on Sunday, February 12 (2pm).

The first game at the Keepmoat Stadium follows six days later against Aston Villa at 6.30pm - following Doncaster Rovers’ League Two clash with Luton Town.
