Ladies score five

Wincanton FC Ladies

Anyone inspired by England’s Lionesses victory in the European Championships might want to roar on Wincanton Town FC’s new ladies team, who played a friendly against Longham Ladies in Bournemouth on Sunday.
It was the first time Wincanton had played a full 90-minute, 11-a-side match against Longham Ladies, ready for the start of their inaugural season in Somerset Women’s League Division 2 (South).
The first half was even with Wincanton opening the scoring after Ella McIntyre finished well but Longham fought back to score twice before the break.
The second half started with renewed optimism and Ella McIntyre scored her second before winning a penalty coolly dispatched by Ellie Dalton. Wincanton were building in confidence and two more goals followed with one each for Ella McIntyre (hat-trick) and Ellie Dalton.
The match finished 5-2 to Wincanton Town Ladies. For upcoming fixtures, updates and news on Wincanton FC Ladies visit
