Burnley welcome Wolves in a clash of last season’s FA Women’s National League Northern Premier Division third and second-placed sides.

The Clarets and Wanderers both made winning starts on 20 August, along with Nottingham Forest, Huddersfield and West Brom, two of whom go head to head. Delayed starts see Newcastle travel to Fylde and Halifax host Stourbridge.

Billericay Town face Rugby Borough in the Southern Premier with both looking to double their points tally, Hashtag United were one of last Sunday’s other victors and face a testing trip to Oxford United, who began with a draw at MK Dons.

Sutton Coldfield Town made a winning debut in Division 1 Midlands and next visit Peterborough United, Doncaster and Leeds have a Yorkshire derby in Division 1 North with the Belles looking to recover for a League Cup mauling that followed their big opening day win.

Two of Division 1 South West’s match day one winners – Exeter City v Swindon Town – meet up, as do Norwich City and London Seaward in Division 1 South East, which also features a London derby at Plough Lane.
