ROTHERHAM United Women are to play another game at AESSEAL New York Stadium, only this time with a tasty twist.

Rivals Sheffield Wednesday will be the opponents on Sunday, May 12 (6pm), with the #HerGameToo Shield going to the winners.

The Millers beat Mansfield Town on penalties at the NYS last summer to win the trophy in front of 1,124 spectators – a record for a RU Women’s game – and the turnout is expected to be even greater this time around.

The fixture will be all ticket, with sales online only.

Admission is £5 for adults and £2 for children and OAPs. A booking fee applies.

The fixture will see the team again work in partnership with the #HerGameToo movement – a group of female supporters dedicated to spreading the message of the need for equality within football and wider sport, while also highlighting the challenges that women face attending sports events.

Meanwhile, two supporters buses are running to the team’s big end-of-season cup final.
