Women's Football News
This Sunday sees Exeter City Ladies FC enter the F.A.Women's Cup for the first time in the club's history.
To mark the occasion, Exeter City Football Club and Director Julian Tagg have shown huge support for the ladies team and granted permission for the match to be played at St James' Park.
Exeter have been drawn at home to Keynsham Town Development in the First Qualifying Round and the game will be a huge test for the Devon side against a team playing in the division above them in the South West League.
Steve Tully's side won promotion from the Westward Developments Devon League at the end of last season and they have started well in their new league, sitting in third place in Western Division One after a fine victory over Marjons Old Suttonians, one place above them, last Sunday.
The club is aiming to get as much support for the ladies team as possible, so for any fans wishing to come and watch them on Sunday, the support would be greatly appreciated.
St James' Park has previously staged women's football in the past, being the venue for an Under-21 women's international back in 1996 between England and France.
On that occasion, the match finished in a 1-1 draw with Steph Houghton scoring England's goal and the match was notable for a superb attendance in excess of 5,000.
