Wells Ladies unbeaten on way to title
WELLS City Ladies restarted last July with Tracey Hartnett as the manager, Julian Coppell as the coach, Steve Vowles as the team’s physio, and Emily Brown as the captain.
Playing in Division 3 of the Somerset County Women’s League, their first match was in September 2020, which they won, and going into lockdown in November they were at the halfway mark with five wins out of five. The league resumed in April this year and they won three more matches, making it eight wins out of eight. They then drew the last match on Sunday, May 2, against Cheddar Ladies 2-2, making them undefeated champions and winners of the division.
Wells City Ladies play their home matches on the main pitch at Wells football club, and Tracey said: “Everyone at the club has made the new team feel really welcome and we would like to thank the club’s chairman Steve Loxton. We would also like to thank our kit sponsors Georgie Robbins and Kate Ford at Daniels Cafe & Sandwich Bar, Wendy at Wendy’s Hair & Beauty and Matt Hartnett at Go Fudge Yourself.”
Training is on Tuesday nights from 6pm-7.30pm at the football club at Rowdens Road. All ladies over 16 are welcome. Telephone Tracey on 07898 751243 for more details.
