Ones to watch
With the postponement of the Leeds game, the one to watch is staying the same as the week before. A great performance from Amy Pollock on Sunday 5th March against league leaders Durham Cestria, a frustrating loss for the Tigresses in a game Hull City Ladies seem to create more chances. Amy Pollock received player of the match with a fantastic display from midfield, controlling the field on both ends creating many great chances for the Tigresses and solidifying the defense.
Tickets for the game available on the entrance to the ground. Hospitality at the Recreation Ground includes a snack bar, serving hot and cold drinks and food. A few options outside of the ground are available. A few minutes walk outside of the ground can lead you to Wayne’s Pizza Plaice serving everything from fish and chips to pizzas.
