Dorchester Town have announced that the Avenue Stadium will be the new home ground for Yeovil Town Ladies for the 2018/19 season.
In addition, Yeovil Town Ladies reveal that they also hope to return to their former home ground, Huish Park, and home of their parent club, to play some league and cup games.
The announcement comes just weeks after the FA revealed final plans and arrangements of the reshaped Woman’s Super League. Yeovil Town Ladies FC has retained their prestigious position in the Women’s Super League, tier 1, and will play against teams such as Manchester City, Arsenal, Birmingham City, Brighton & Hove Albion, Bristol City, Chelsea Ladies, Everton Ladies, Liverpool Ladies, Reading Women and West Ham.
Steve Allinson, Chairman of Yeovil Town Ladies FC, said: “We are thrilled to formerly announce our plans for the forthcoming season and are delighted that both Dorchester Town FC and Huish Park are committed to driving forward women’s football in the South West.
“Whilst we are of course continuing with discussions to play some games at Huish Park, we also see the benefit of spreading the message across the county and beyond, and are very much targeting Dorchester as a potential area to grow both our fan base and commercial links.
Dorchester are currently embarking on a massive regeneration project which will see the transformation of their current pitch to a state of the art high quality 3G pitch in time for the start of the 18/19 season.
