Third placed Yeovil Town Ladies will play their next Women’s Super League match at Huish Park, as they welcome Millwall Lionesses on Sunday 19th July.
With the Lady Glovers attendances on a big increase and exposure to the women’s game increasing all the time, it is hoped that Huish Park will welcome in excess of 1000 fans to the game to support local Women’s elite football, which comes off the back of a recent superb World Cup campaign for the England Women team.
This will be the first time that Huish Park has hosted a female game since the fixture back in 2013 when Leeds Utd played in an FA Women’s Cup game, which saw just over 600 fans in attendance.
But with an excellent first half of the season in the FAWSL, manager Jamie Sherwood is hoping that a large following will come along and support his team on 19th July, in their first game since the midseason and World Cup break.
Sherwood said “We have had a terrific first half of the season, but our next run of games are crucial to us and they are huge matches and if we want to progress further, we will have to be at our best. The players will be absolutely buzzing to be able to play at Huish Park and they will do all they can to ensure that their performance on the pitch, is a return on the amount of energy and support given from the fans.”
“Millwall will be a tough test, but I’m positive that with the support of the whole region, this will enable us to get the points we require in order to put on a real push for promotion”
“Our ladies are big supporters of the mens team, and we know the mens team are big supporters to the Ladies too and the opportunity for us to showcase Women’s Elite football at Huish Park, shows the ‘One Club’ philosophy in order in Achieve By Unity. The players will wear their green and white shirts with pride and will give no less than 100%”
Yeovil Town Ladies Chairman Steve Allinson said “I am very grateful to John Fry and his Board of Directors for giving us the opportunity to play this game at Huish Park and we are all looking forward to an opportunity to showcase the women’s game, which has captured the imagination of so many through the recent performances of our England team in the Women’s World Cup"
