Manchester United will return to Old Trafford in March when they face West Ham in the Barclays Women’s Super League.

The fixture on Saturday, March 25 will be United’s first women’s match of the year at Old Trafford, where Marc Skinner’s side have a 100 per cent record.

Skinner told the club’s official website: “Our entire group of players and staff are extremely excited to perform in front of our incredible fans at Old Trafford, for the second time this season.

“As the women’s game continues to grow, we are delighted that this great football club remains at the heart of it and offer another wonderful opportunity for fans – both old and new – to experience a Manchester United Women’s game on the biggest stage.”
