Ottery Ladies football team are looking for some new members as they start their pre-season training. The team train on Thursday evenings at 7pm and Sunday afternoons at 2pm at their ground at Washbrook Meadow.

The women’s game has a long history and recently has started to make a big comeback in popularity and interest. You can read a little bit about the turbulent women’s game including the FA’s decision to impose a ban on ladies playing professionally during the inter war years in this interesting BBC News article.

Luckily the modern game is much more inclusive and the as the Ottery Ladies begin their Division One KO Cup in September any new interested ladies will get a great reception. Their first cup tie is on September 3rd against Budleigh – which is sure to be a great kick off to the season.

So don your boots and show the boys how it’s done and make a few new friends along the way.
