AFC Fylde Women play their final home game of the season on Sunday when they welcome Huddersfield Town Women FC to Kellamergh Park.


This league fixture is scheduled for Sunday 21st April, with kick-off at 2.00 pm.


For their final home clash of the 2023/24 season, the Coasters entertain the Terriers in what promises to be a competitive encounter between the division's bottom two sides.


Unfortunately, both clubs will only be playing for pride after their relegation from the FAWNL Northern Premier Division was confirmed last weekend with defeats in their respective fixtures.


Last Sunday saw the Coasters return to Kellamergh Park for their first home game in over a month as Wolves Women were the visitors. Wolves ran out 3-0 winners to extend their winning streak to five games and condemn the hosts to a disappointing defeat.


Despite falling behind in the first half, Fylde showed great resilience and remained firmly in the contest. It stayed that way until the closing quarter of an hour when Wolves eventually managed to put the game to bed by scoring twice late on.


After failing to secure maximum points last time out, the Coasters can no longer bridge the gap to safety as they drop into the fourth tier of the women’s football pyramid.


This weekend’s meeting with the Terriers presents another tough task for the Coasters, whose ambition now is to gain as many points as possible in their remaining three games in a bid to climb off the foot of the table.


The last time that the two sides met was all the way back on the opening day of the season. The Coasters travelled to West Yorkshire on 20th August 2023 to take on the Terriers at the Stafflex Arena. On that occasion, Fylde came away empty-handed after falling to a 4-2 defeat on their travels.


Fylde twice held the lead thanks to goals from Ginny Lackey either side of the interval. Huddersfield Town then managed to draw level before adding two more goals to claim all the spoils.


As the two teams look ahead to this Sunday's clash, the Coasters will be eager to finish their home campaign on a positive note. Supporters are encouraged to come along to Kellamergh Park and show their support for the final time at home this season.
