Training: Up for the Conti Cup!

Take a look at the best images as City continued preparations for our Continental Cup semi-final clash with Arsenal.

Gareth Taylor’s side travel to Meadow Park on Wednesday 8 February, kick-off scheduled for 19:15 (UK), aiming to reach our second consecutive final in the competition.

We lifted the League Cup for the fourth time in our history last term, following an enthralling 3-1 victory over Chelsea at Plough Lane.

A Caroline Weir brace either side of Ellen White’s effort cancelled out Sam Kerr’s opener as we triumphed in the capital.


And the meeting with the Gunners represents our first of the season, after our season opener with Jonas Eidevall’s side was postponed due to HRH Queen Elizabeth II’s passing in September 2022.

In our previous encounter with the north London side, in January 2022, we were denied three points by a last-gasp equaliser from Tobin Heath after Khadija ‘Bunny’ Shaw netted in the second half.

As our gallery shows, City were hard at work as we look to overcome the side who sit one place above us in the Barclays Women’s Super League table to reach the showpiece event.
