The Woodspring Stadium, home to Weston-super-Mare Football Club, will host top-flight football this weekend.

Yeovil Town Ladies will take on Reading FC Women at the home of the Seagulls on Sunday at 12.30pm.

The game was due to take place at the Glovers’ Huish Park stadium, but their male colleagues are due to take on Port Vale in an FA Cup second round replay on Tuesday night – forcing the Women’s Super League fixture to be relocated to the Winterstoke Road ground.

The game, between the fifth-placed Royals and basement side Yeovil, will be broadcast live on the BBC Red Button and website.

A spokesman said: “Due to the importance of the FA Cup replay game, Yeovil Town Ladies FC have made last-minute changes and switch to a new venue.

“We understand for many fans, this change in venue will be a considerable inconvenience, but we would like to encourage you to continue your support of the team and join us on Sunday, under circumstances out of our control.

“We would like to extend our gratitude to everyone at Weston Football Club who has made this possible at such short notice, regardless of other commitments they have on the day.

“We intend to continue our festive theme for the game. Please do get involved by wearing your Christmas jumpers and bringing some festive cheer to the game.

“We will also now be extending our kids for a quid offer to turnstile sales as well as online sales.

“We thank you for your continued support in times of adversity and we will continue to do all we can to give back to our fans in every aspect of our club.”

Tickets cost £1-7 and are available from www.yeoviltownladies.com, or on the turnstiles.
