    Welcome to Manchester reception committee
    Our first league match of the season.

    Tickets on the gate or in advance from: https://tickets.avfc.co.uk/en-GB/events/aston villa ladies v manchester united ladies/2018-9-9_15.00/boldmere st michaels?back=2&area=140d33b2-5b98-e711-80ce-d318130781f8&type=ga

    Villa Ladies have been officially part of the Aston Villa setup since 1996 but have actually been around since 73 (when they were Solihull Ladies). It's worth remembering that it was only in 71 that the FA lifted its ban on girls/women using the grounds of FA affiliated clubs, so Solihull would have been one of the earliest women's clubs of the modern era. They've been in the WSL2/Championship since it was formed in 2014.

    Villa Ladies came 9th (of ten teams) last year in WSL2.

    What I’ve found is that they won the league cup once, in 2012/13 I believe, and that their Dutch midfielder Nadine Hanssen has previously played for PSV, Anderlecht and Genk and is not a stranger to scoring and assisting.

    It’s a fairly young team with several youth caps, and defender Elisha N’Dow and forward Ashlee Brown both have played for England U20.

    Doesn’t seem to be showing on TV. Not on MUTV and BT are showing Chelsea W vs Man City W. Checked MUTV all the way through to Wednesday and there doesn’t seem to be any highlight show of it anywhere. Anyone see anything different?

    It doesn't look like Villa broadcast the women's games on their TV channel nor their YouTube - they don't seem to have much from their home youth team either, so I'm guessing they don't have the budget for it. Whether United will have any YouTube grade highlights I guess we'll have to wait and see.

    You would hope so, they really have to have something. It would seem like a really weird step to promote the woman’s team so much then first game of the season no coverage. Hope there is something.

    To be honest, I'll be pleased enough if the official United twitter feed https://twitter.com/ManUtdWomen does a good job tomorrow with plenty of live match updates.

    That's like trying to get blood from a stone though, the unofficial one is 100 times better although doubt they'll be able to do anything unless at the match.

    So I should just be able to open the YouTube app on my shield, search Aston villa and I should be able to watch the game on my big tv?

    I've just taken a look at the Aston Villa FC channel and the link is up ready for tomorrow. I guess you can do a quick check with one of the existing videos to see how it appears.

    Seems quite apt that Villa ladies were one of the very first, when the men’s team were one of the founders of the football league in England.

    That’s just brilliant! Looking forward to it. Casey Stoney vs Gemma Davies (25), head of football for women at Birmingham University and an interesting coach/manager prospect.

    Will we see Ebony Salmon get minutes against her old team mates?

    Working at the moment - picture quality isn't great so I wouldn't be surprised if it freezes.

    I don't think AVTV has a big live commentary team. He sounds like they've borrowed him from student radio :smirk:

    Because it's the closest he's ever been to a woman not in his family and he's super excited.

    This stream is making me sea sick. I don't think they were prepared for this amount watching

    We're looking a bit nervy at the back.
