Burnley women: FA Cup, investment & new surroundings

A lot has changed for Burnley women in the space of a month.

With no league games after their season was ended because of Covid-19 restrictions, they are now preparing for a second FA Cup match in a week, training at the men's facilities and eyeing up a potential fourth-round tie with Manchester United.

Burnley, who play in the third tier of women's football, had six days to prepare for their FA Cup victory over Fylde last Sunday after Covid-19 restrictions stopped them from playing.

They take on Sunderland in the third round this weekend with the winner set to play Women's Super League side Manchester United in the last 32.
