Manchester City Academy Manchester, United Kingdom

Manchester City women

I took my daughters to their first game of football yesterday. It was Manchester City's women's team, facing Rosengard of Sweden in a pre-season friendly.

It looks empty but that's because all the spectators were sitting in the same stand. The attendance was more than 1,000, which I must admit I was pleasantly surprised by considering the cold weather and the fact it was essentially just a warm-up match.

City, in light blue, won 3-1. My eldest plays football at school and being from Salford, really ought to support Manchester United. But they don't have a women's team and City do, so City it is!
