Ian, a genuine question here as I've little knowledge of the womens game generally yet alone at a local level.Mmmm, a very rude awakening tonight. The girls are getting ripped to shreds at the moment. A combination of the best opponents they've come against, a new set of girls and not such a good standard in the side unfortunately.
They have a very good set up there Geoff. I don't know what is in the Taunton locality as far as women's football is concerned. Even with last season's side, we would have had a tough evening as they're the best side I've seen City come up against. As to our own issues, have a look back through both of the women's threads for this season and you'll see what I think our problems are this season so far.Ian, a genuine question here as I've little knowledge of the womens game generally yet alone at a local level.
I pass by Bishops Lydeard often. You get to it and a minute later you've passed it. How come a quantock village with a population of a few thousand has such a strong team to beat a development side from a city with 30 or 40 times that number quite so convincingly? It does seem rather odd. Is there some over riding factor that has made the village a magnet for good players? Or are they fairly average and it was just our team that was poor because we have been unable to entice better players? It all seems so random but is that where the womens game is right now at local level?
Where is it being played Ian?Well tomorrows opening game of the season has been cancelled due to 'registration issues'. Whether that's ours or Seatons I don't know. The Development Side now have a friendly down at Torquay Utd Ladies 2nds, hopefully more balanced test than Thursday nights game.
