Welcome to a new series of podcasts which will be based around the Arsenal Women’s team.
In this first episode: Arsenal Women will bid to win the WSL Continental Tyres Cup for the 6th time in 8 seasons when they face Manchester City in the final at Bramall Lane on Saturday. This is a repeat of last year’s final, which the Gunners won 1-0 thanks to a goal from Vivianne Miedema.
Our Arsenal Women correspondent Tim Stillman @Stillberto looks ahead to that game with the help of Arsenal centre half Leah Williamson. Leah talks about Arsenal Women being ‘feared and respected’ again, Vivianne Miedema, the threat that City pose and she contemplates her 7th cup final as an Arsenal player before her 22nd birthday.
Leah also talks about growing up as an Arsenal fan, interrupting a family holiday in Cornwall when she was 9 so that she could be Arsenal’s mascot and about Petr Cech taking the women’s team out to dinner on Monday night.
Tim also provides a preview to give a bit of context and there is full information on how you can watch the game on Saturday at 12.15pm.
