Thursday 29 August 2002

Fulham Ladies will try to make it three out of three when they travel to Brighton on Sunday to take on Brighton and Hove Albion Women and Girls.

Promoted to the National Premier Division at the beginning of last season the Seagulls successfully maintained their top-flight status and achieved a respectable mid-table position. With the support of the professional men's club and club sponsors CRASH Training Brighton boasts one of the most sophisticated coaching and development schemes in the League.

Brighton have lost their first two matches of the season and are bottom of the league. However they put up a strong fight against Doncaster Belles last week, narrowly losing 0 - 1. Their first game of the season was a 1 - 6 loss to Charlton who are lying in second place to Fulham it the National Premier League.

Fulham Ladies are riding high following conclusive victories away to Doncaster Belles and at home to Everton Ladies and will hope to maintain their 100% defense record.

Striker Una Nwajei, who signed for the Club from Southampton in the summer scored against both Doncaster Belles and Everton. She said:

"I am really pleased with the start I have made to the season. Training every day with the quality players at Fulham has increased my confidence and I hope to add to my goal tally at the weekend"
