Picture special: MCWFC go again

As the FA Women's Super League season nears its conclusion, Manchester City Women have started preparations for Sunday's visit of Bristol Academy.

A win would put the Blues top of the table - at least for a few hours - as they play before league leaders Chelsea Ladies, and although many of the team have been away on international duty, there was no rest for Nick Cushing's side.

On a sunny morning in Manchester, the remainder of the squad enjoyed a light-hearted training session and our roving Club photographer Victoria Haydn was on hand to snap it.

Something's tickled Natasha Flint and Georgia Brougham.
