Yeovil Town Ladies to offer free entry to Dorset-based clubs
Yeovil Town Ladies are delighted to announce that as part of their ever-expanding work in the Somerset community and beyond, the club is set to offer free entry to all Dorset FA clubs for this weekend’s Continental Cup game against Tottenham Hotspur Ladies.
This is alongside the work the club is doing to promote young talent in Somerset and Dorset – the county which Dorchester Town is based.
By being the county on Yeovil’s doorstep – and where Yeovil now play their home games – this presents a unique opportunity for Dorset’s upcoming football talent.
Yeovil Town player and club Community Officer Annie Heatherson said: “To have the opportunity to work with the main county surrounding Dorchester Town FC, where we play our home games, is massive for Yeovil Town Ladies as these youngsters have a professional team right on their door step.
“These are the young bright talent of this country and the South West is lucky enough to have a high standard of women’s football.
“Dorset is just one county on our door step. I'm so excited to also have Somerset, Devon, Cornwall and Wiltshire close by and my main aim and focus is to work very closely with all five counties as these guys hold the future talent of our county and potentially our country".
At Dorset FA Justine Mosley is the women's and girls development officer. She said: “It is exciting for Dorset teams, especially within the female game, to be able to see top level women’s football being played within the county.
“The players at Yeovil are fantastic role models for all young female players so we are pleased to see the club embracing that and offering our teams free entry to the game.”
Any player that is part of the Dorset FA and would like to invite their team to Dorchester Town FC on Sunday 16th September at 3pm, please contact Annie Heatherson on Annie.Heatherson@yeoviltownladies.com
The Continental Cup match will kick off at 3pm at Dorchester Town and if the match is level after 90 minutes, each team will get a point and there will be a penalty shoot-out to decide which team will receive a bonus point.
So, don’t miss out on the chance to see a local top flight team in action.
