Women's Preview: Yeovil vs Saints

By SFC Media time Sun 24 Nov Womens Team

It’s the first of a Yeovil Town double header for Saints Women, who travel there in the second round of the National League Cup on Sunday.

It's the same opponents on the horizon next week in the FA Cup, so Marieanne Spacey-Cale and her team will be more than familiar with the National League South side by the start of December.

Saints go into this league cup tie having won their last 10 games in all competitions, their last outing in the competition being a 3-1 win at Larkhall Athletic.

Phoebe Williams was the start of the show, her hat-trick in October ensuring progression to the second round.

Yeovil go into Sunday’s cup tie following a similarly positive run; unbeaten in their last five including a 6-1 league win at home to Gillingham and a 5-0 win away at Keynesham Town.

Former director of football Jamie Sherwood returned as first-team manager at the start of the month, leading his side to a 2-1 home win over MK Dons last time out. 

Goals from Annie Heatherson and Meesha Dudley-Jones continued Yeovil’s strong league form, which sees them sitting fourth after nine games.
