After a successful season of promotions and cup wins, Bemerton Heath Harlequins FC are expanding into women’s football with the formation of Bemerton Heath Harlequins Ladies FC.
The team will join the growing Wiltshire County Women’s & Girl’s League, playing on Sunday’s with Moon Park as their home.
With the Women’s World Cup coming up and the success of the Lionesses at the Euro’s, there is no better time to be part of growing the women’s game.
The team at Bemerton Heath Harlequins hope to create a happy, supportive and successful environment, with the club continuing to be a fantastic community asset.
Director of football, Ian Saunders, said: “I am absolutely over the moon that our club has another piece of the true community club jigsaw. We restarted our youth section and our ambition was to cater for ‘everyone’ in and around our community.
“The ladies team coming on board has now provided that platform. We look forward to working closely with our new team, during this exciting time for our club.”
The ladies team trials take place at Hudson’s Field on July 12th (7pm-9pm), July 16th (10am-12pm) and July 19th (7pm-9pm).
Individuals may register their interest by emailing BHHLFC@Gmail.com.
The team is looking forward to meeting those that wish to participate and have already received significant interest.
BHHLFC will be announcing friendlies, management and sponsors over the coming days and weeks. The first pre-season friendly will see the team travel to Southampton to face another newly formed team, Eling Ladies FC, on August 13th in what will be a great challenge for two brand new sides.
Later in the summer, the management team and players will be attending this year’s Salisbury Summer Fair, at Wilton House, with a Bemerton Heath Harlequins stall and Beat-The-Keeper challenge to raise money for both the team and Salisbury Hospice Charity.
