Bath City are to set up a new women’s team with the aim of playing in the Somerset County League in the forthcoming season.
Supported by founding sponsor Novia Financial, the side will play their home games at the National League South club’s Twerton Park ground, which has previously hosted Bristol City in the WSL.
Chair of the community-owned Bath City, Nick Blofeld told bathcityfc.com: “As a community-owned club with a commitment to inclusion, we’ve wanted to get a women’s side up and running for a number of seasons. Thanks to Novia, we now have the resources in place to launch our women’s team in a sustainable and hopefully successful way.”
Jane Jones,Women’s Team Lead, said: “The club is fully behind us and, in addition to all the performance support the team will get, we will make sure that they are fully promoted too, with dedicated social media channels and on our website. We hope that playing for Bath City Women will be appealing to local players and we hope that our club can help grow the women’s game in our local area.”
Tara Taylor, Platform Support Engineer at Novia, commented: “I’ve played in local football teams for over 20 years, so I’m thrilled that we’re going to have a Bath City Women’s team and I’m proud that Novia are helping to make it happen.”
There’s a player recruitment day at Twerton Park on Sunday 10 July, with a head coach also required. For further information, email firstname.lastname@example.org
