The Ladies are playing this season's matches at the highest level in their club's history, having reached the FA Women's Premier League Southern Division. So far, they've found things considerably harder than games they played last season in the division below. However, they have largely competed well and currently have a draw and a defeat each in both the League and the League Cup, with scorelines of 0-2, 1-1, 1-3 and 1-1 suggesting that they are capable of competing at this new level.
On Saturday, they drew 1-1 at home to Brighton and Hove Albion, and were hugely unlucky not to take away all three points, with a Jemma Tewksbury Yeovil's scorer, until a last gasp equaliser from the Seagulls broke their hearts. Jemma's goal came during the second period, with last season's top scorer getting ahead of a large number of players to prod home from close range, leaving a pile of bodies on the goal line and the ball in the back of the net. So far, Tewksbury is Yeovil's only goalscorer - three goals in her last three matches, suggesting she is starting to find her feet although maybe matching the 52 goals she scored last season will be a touch too ambitious!
The Ladies play their third League match of the season on Sunday, with a trip to play Gillingham Ladies, who lie one place above them in the League Table. The Glovers are currently 7th in a league of 10 teams, but have a game in hand over all of the teams above them due to Cardiff City Ladies calling off their opening game of the season, due to international call-ups.
Yeovil Town Ladies Reserves have started their season well and currently sit in 4th place in their league table. They gained a 4-0 win over Barnet Ladies Reserves on Sunday in a match played at Gassons Lane, Somerton. Kia Bowles, Dee Cracknell, Jodi Cornwall and Chelsea Board were their scorers.
