A newly-branded Bridgwater United will be competing in the FA Women’s National League next season, if a merger is officially approved.
Bridgwater Town FC and Yeovil United FC will join under one unified name to represent the town in which they are based.
“There has been an incredible amount of work undertaken in recent months and it will demonstrate our determination to return the women’s side to the Women’s Super League (WSL),” CEO Adam Murry told yeovilunitedfc.com.
Jamie Sherwood, Women’s team manager, commented that: “The decision to see the clubs merge as Bridgwater United, is the right one, to allow for our own sustainability and to allow the region to have an even higher profile female football club than it already does.
“The vision and the commitment to achieving the ambition that Mr Murry has set out for Bridgwater United takes me back to the days when the club first took its journey to the top tier of the women’s game and this infectious ambition is a huge contributing factor as to why I believe it’s right to provide a joint home next to our headquarters at the college, pool resources and the professional support we will be offered.”
