Doncaster Rovers Belles celebrate winning the 2018 FAWSL2 title.

Sunday’s meeting with Oxford United Women had been scheduled to be played at the Keepmoat Stadium.

“Our friends at Sheffield FC have been kind enough to host us once again after previously helping the Belles during the summer of 2016 when we hosted Sunderland in the Continental Tyres Cup.

“With champions status already secured, it should be a fantastic game and with it comes the chance to witness Leandra Little and the Belles lifting the FA WSL 2 title.”

Tickets will be priced at £6 for adults and £1 for concessions at the turnstile.
