Weston-super-Mare Ladies have already notched up two impressive and certainly comfortable wins ahead of their very first season in the Somerset County League.
Despite having only two months of training behind them, the lady Seagulls have won their first two games 6-4 and 9-4.
There has been an overwhelming interest in the women’s side of Weston AFC and there are now more than 20 players signed up.
But this should not deter others from signing up as the Mercury understands there could be plans for a reserve team in the future.
Ahead of the new season, Weston Ladies have now appointed a captain. Dionne Crisp will take the armband when the season starts on the first weekend of September.
