Gallery: Albion bow out of the Conti Cup
Albion were defeated 2-0 by Reading in Group D of the Continental Tyres League Cup. Goals either side of half-time from Natasha Harding and Amalie Eikeland ensured that the Royals remain in with a chance of progressing to the knockout stages as one of the best runners-up. Hope Powell made a welcome return to the dugout after missing the last two matches due to self-isolating. Club photographer Paul Hazlewood was on hand to capture the action.
