Somerset Womens Rep Squad

Somerset's women are off to an early start

Somerset open their South & West Counties Women's Championship campaign with a home fixture against near neighbours Wiltshire. The match will be played at Welton Rovers FC on Tuesday 18th July with a 7.30 pm kick-off. Admission is free.

Speaking to www.somersetfa.com last week, Manager Julie Bowker expressed optimism for the coming season. She said, “We played in the SW Counties one-day tournament back in June and I was delighted that we reached the final after some fairly competitive games. All the teams we play this season were there and I have to say that the eventual winners, Gloucestershire, put in some pretty strong performances and were worthy of their success. Having had the opportunity to measure ourselves against the other teams we are likely to encounter this season, I know now where we are and what we have to do. Obviously, Gloucestershire is going to be the ones to beat but I am quietly confident that we can also be challenging for the title.”
