Weston Ladies are edging closer to their debut season in the Somerset County League, having now begun training, but are welcoming additional players to join the side.

The Mercury reported last month a management team had been appointed and plans were in place to play their first game in September.

Now, manager Josh Donoghue and assistant manager Phil Sheridan have started assessing their prospective squad.

The club currently have 13 women attending training but needs more players - and its secretary and coach administrator is urging women of all abilities to get involved.

Stacie Morrissey told the Mercury while she is happy with the turnout so far, she is keen to up the numbers before making permanent signings.

She said: “We have 13 girls at the moment but we haven’t signed anyone on yet.

“We are hoping to do that in the first week of June just to make sure everyone is happy and likes it. It is going really well, it really is brilliant.

“We have a mixture of people coming from Bristol, Weston and surrounding areas like Highbridge and Clevedon.

“I would encourage anyone to come along. We welcome people from all abilities who are over 16.”

The club are also working on a development fustal side, which would introduce five-a-side football to the community.

This is still in its infancy and Stacie said it is just one of the many exciting things happening at the Woodspring Stadium.

She said: “There is lots going on and we are excited about it all.

“We have done all the applications necessary to compete in the league from September. This is the last push now to get people on board.”

Weston Ladies train on Tuesdays and Thursdays and will play matches every Sunday once the season starts.
