“It’s great to start with a new team as you get to put your own stamp on it and start afresh and make it your own.

“Having a big team like Weston interested in creating a women’s team shows how much it is growing.

“Hopefully, we can go on to be successful. We have all the training sessions planned out – now we just need the players.”

Weston Ladies are holding open trials and registration evenings on May 10 and 12 between 7pm and 9pm.

However, if any prospective players are unable to make these dates, they should still contact the club.

Training will start on May 17, and will continue every Tuesday and Thursday.
