Zamora has kept a close eye on the team’s progress in recent years, and commented on how the women's game as a whole is going from strength to strength.

He said, “In 2015, when I re-joined the Albion, I got to know several of the women’s team players at the time. Some are still with the club, and it is great to see the transition they have made to becoming professional players.

“The opportunity the Albion have provided for the players professionally, and the investment the club has made in backing women’s football, really is exemplary.

“The level of opposition in the Women’s Super League means the players need to be on top form every match, which is tough when you have teams like Manchester City, Arsenal and Chelsea in a division of just 12 teams.”

Bobby has seen great strides made by the Albion players and other teams since 2015, adding, “In the past three to four years, the tempo of games and fitness of the players in the Women’s Super League has been the biggest change for me, which is no doubt down to the players being able to train full time. It all adds to creating matches that are just as entertaining and competitive as a Premier League or Championship game.”

Sunday’s FAWSL game against West Ham United takes place at The People’s Pension Stadium in Crawley, Sunday 13th October, kick-off 2pm.

Advance tickets are still available online at tickets.BrightonAndHoveAlbion.com, and are priced at £2 for juniors and £4 for adults. Tickets are also available on the gate, subject to availability.
