Women's National League Cup, Determining Round

Monday's draw for the 2021/22 League Cup represented another step towards normality for women's football.

Due to the pandemic Saints haven't taken part in the competition since February 2020, where a spirited performance ultimately ended in a 1-0 defeat at Sunderland.

Despite playing in the same division as their Determining Round opponents for two seasons, similar restrictions have meant Saints have only faced Cheltenham once out of a four possible occasions.

That meeting came at the start of the 2019/20 season; goals from Shanon Sievwright, Ella Pusey, Kirsty Whitton and Rachel Panting ensuring a 4-0 win at Snows Stadium in September.

Ticket details for this Septembers first outing in the League Cup will be released in due course.
