Nottingham Forest Women will play East Midlands rivals Derby County at The City Ground on Sunday 16 October.

The FA National League Northern Premier Division clash is a repeat of last season’s fixture, which had a bumper attendance of 4,443.

Head Coach, Andy Cook, told nottinghamforest.co.uk: “We’re really excited to be coming back to The City Ground, especially for a game of this magnitude against our biggest rivals..

“The support has been fantastic for the team since I’ve been here and to break the record last season for the highest ever attendance in our division was superb and it would be special to improve on that even further.

“We’ve started the season really strongly and we’re looking to build on that, so to have a massive league game at The City Ground to look forward to gives us even more motivation to keep striving forward and improving.”
