The date for Albion's FAWSL match against Reading has been moved.

The Barclays FA Women’s Super League match at the People’s Pension Stadium against Reading has been brought forward to Friday 29th November, kick-off 7.45pm.

The match was originally scheduled for the Sunday of that weekend, but the change has been made as Crawley Town’s Emirates FA Cup second round tie against Fleetwood Town will now take place on that day.

All existing tickets that have been bought for this match will still be valid, however if you are not able to make the match, please contact who will be able to arrange a refund.

Tickets are still available for the clash with the Royals, priced at £4 for adults and £2 for under-18s or over 65s.

These can be bought at or by calling the Albion Booking Line on 0844 327 1901 (calls cost seven pence per minute plus your network access charge).

*Advanced prices include a £1 online booking fee. If you book over the phone or in-person, there is an extra 50p booking fee.
