Women's FA Cup - Road to the Final
Winchester City Flyers produced a stunning performance to win 9-3 against Bideford and earn themselves a home tie against Poole Town. Francesca Thornton scored a hat-trick while Katie Johns, Libby O'Dell and Emily Woodhouse all netted two apiece to see the Flyers through to face the National League side.
Poole Town Ladies was originally founded in the late 1980's, competing the Dorset Women's League. In 2007, the ladies merged with another local club, Ashdown Rovers but retained the Poole Town name. The merger enabled the club to run two ladies teams as well as a number of girls teams and become one of the most successful clubs in Dorset.
Poole Town Ladies are one of the few ever present teams to compete every season in the Dorset Women's League and this is pivotal to the progression and development of their players.
Following promotion into the South West Women's Regional League Division One the club quickly achieved promotion into the South West Women's Regional League Premier Division in season 2004-05 following a season going unbeaten and scoring a phenomenal numbers of goals. The next few seasons saw the team competing in both the South West Women's Regional League and the Dorset League - being the only club running two ladies teams consistently for a number of years.
More recently, the club achieved their highest achievement to date by gaining promotion to the FA Women's National League, which they have now competed in for three seasons. The ladies play at the highest level of football for any ladies team in Dorset, including their illustrious Premier League neighbours, AFC Bournemouth, something which they are extremely proud of. In recognition of their achievements the club were named the Dorset Club of the Year in 2018 and the FA Women's Premier League Respect Club of the Year 2018 - fantastic accolades to win.
Shane Terry is the club's First Team manager and Becca Witherington is captain.
