It was a huge weekend of football for both the first team and the Ladies sides” With the lads securing their second place finish and playoff qualification on Saturday, it was up to the Ladies to make it a truly memorable weekend for the club!
Swindon Town Development were the visitors to Weymouth Street for the 3rd and final encounter between the two sides and most importantly, the title decider! Swindon were just a point ahead with Warminster having a game in hand. A win would secure the title there and then, a draw would’ve taken it down the last game against Frome.
There were no such worries though as Warminster ran out winners! A single worldie goal into the top bins from Maddy Brown in just the 4th minute was enough to secure the win in what was a cagey and scrappy game with neither side willing to take too many chances.
That early pressure from Warminster paid off though and they defended solidly through the rest of the game, limiting Swindon to very few chances of their own. Warminster could’ve had a couple more if not for some impressive saves from Dani Hull in the Swindon goal.
Warminster Town Ladies are South West Regional Women’s league Eastern Division CHAMPIONS!
A fantastic weekend for the club and history made!
