Somerset Women Look To Win Again

Somerset take on rivals Gloucestershire in their second fixture

Following their exciting 6-4 victory over Wiltshire in the opening fixture, Somerset make the short trip up the M5 to Almondsbury to take on local rivals Gloucestershire in the second of this season’s South & West Counties Women's Championship matches. The match will be played at Gloucestershire FA’s Headquarters on Wednesday 16th August with a 7.30 pm kick-off.

Manager Julie Bowker was upbeat when she spoke with www.somersetfa.com after the Wiltshire game. She said, “I was really pleased with the overall performance of the team and it was a good game to watch with both sides contributing to an exciting finale. We were behind twice before drawing level to 4-4 and then going on to score twice in the closing stages to take the points.

Judging by their performance in the Summer Tournament back in June,” she added, “Gloucestershire will be the team to beat. They edged us out in the Final, so I’m looking for us to go one better this time out.”
