How Do I Think Bradford City Women & Brighouse Town Women Are Going To Do This Season?

The new FAWNL kicks off on the 20th September and once again I will be following this league closely. Last season was my first season properly watching the FAWNL and unfortunately it was cut short due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Although the season was cut short I really enjoyed going and watching a different league and seeing different teams even though the season wasn't going too well for Bradford. The season brought some great opportunities for me and really opened my eyes to life away from top flight women's football, that is why I will be following it closely once again. 

The league I follow is Division 1 North due to my favourites, Bradford City Women being in this league as well as local team Brighouse Town Women. I may follow Bradford as my main team however, I certainly keep a close eye on Brighouse too as they aren't too far away from me and they play some brilliant football. 

Where as Bradford seemed to struggle last season Brighouse were definitely flying high and could have easily topped the league if it hadn't ended so abruptly. Bradford however, were saved from the abrupt ending and thanks to there being no relegation they live to see Division 1 North for another season. 

When you look at Bradford towards the end of last season they were really starting to make some progress on field with the appointment of Chris Hame's as the new manager but unfortunately that ground to a halt with the cancellation of the season. In the off season though they have rebuilt, retained some great players & brought in some new to strengthen the squad and fingers crossed Chris can build on the progress he made at the end of last season and that City are going to get off to a good start and keep building momentum to have a much stronger season and avoid relegation. 

Brighouse where the total opposite to Bradford last season and were doing absolutely fantastic and could have honestly pushed to win the league if the season hadn't ended as it did. Again though they have moved on in the off season and although they have lost a few players they have retained some fantastic names and brought in some other fantastic players who are just going to add strength and depth to the squad. I think Brighouse are definitely going to be a force to be reckoned with and are going to be challenging for that top spot again and looking at the potential of the squad they could quite possibly make it. 

Both teams have really built up their squads and have been working hard in the off season and I think both teams can do really well this upcoming season. Fingers crossed Bradford become at least a mid table team this season as I do believe they have the potential to finish there. I really think we will see Brighouse challenging that top 2 spot this coming season too 

Although this isn't like my other predictions posts we will check back on Bradford and Brighouse's progress in January and then again at the end of the season.

How well do you think either of these teams are going to do?
