As we enter the eighth month, the countdown to the new FA Women's Super League season marks five weeks!
Although many of our City stars are enjoying some well-deserved time off, following their Olympic exploits - or still in Japan competing for a gold medal (we see you, Janine Beckie!) - the rest of the squad have been putting in the hard yards at the City Football Academy in preparation for the new season.
City face Everton on the opening day of the new FA WSL campaign between 3-5 September and the squad have been grafting to ensure they're ready for our 2021/22 curtain raiser.
While the work was tough, there were plenty of smiles as excitement for the new term builds. Work hard, play hard!
