Huish Park to host top flight football.

Yeovil Town Ladies will continue to play home matches at Huish Park for the forthcoming FA Women's Super League One campaign.

Crowned champions of FA WSL 2 last term, Jamie Sherwood's side will enter a second straight regular season playing at the home of the Glovers.

Having toured the county during the recent Spring Series, Ladies action will return to Huish Park from September with the FA Women's Super League season now aligned to the traditional winter football calendar.

Visiting Huish Park in the 2017/18 season will be Manchester City, Arsenal, Liverpool, Chelsea, Everton, Birmingham City, Reading, Sunderland and Bristol City, with fixtures scheduled on both Saturdays and Sundays throughout winter, along with midweek matches too.

Despite entering a maiden season in Super League One, Huish Park will become the fourth largest regularly used home ground in FAWSL, with only two other EFL or Premier League clubs sharing the first-team pitch with their female colleagues.

Manager Sherwood was delighted to see his side back where they belong saying, "Huish Park is a special place and one where we have had much success of recent times.

"The support which we have had whilst playing in front of the home crowd here, has undoubtably helped us, as we really do play for our fans.”

Sherwood went on to say "We hope to do everyone in Yeovil, Somerset and the surrounding area proud and by bringing top flight football to Huish Park, we hope that we can see excellent support towards the club."

Yeovil Town Ladies' opening match is on Sunday 24th September with more information on their opponents being released on Wednesday 2nd August.

Yeovil Town Ladies FC would like to place on record their thanks and appreciation to both Taunton Town FC and Bridgwater Town FC, who kindly helped host WSL1 Spring Series matches in the April to June period this year.

Season tickets are due to be announced soon.
