Former West Midlands League Division One South Champions Southam United, who relinquished their league status and folded up in April 2007, are set to return next season.
Southam United were originally formed as Southam Town, in the summer of 1999 from the club's successful league and cup double winning youth side then managed by Fort Parisi. They were joined by newly appointed manager Ian Ray, formerly of Leamington Ladies, and several experienced players including Birmingham county capped goalkeeper Vicky Bolton and defenders Michelle Guppy and Claire Hughes.
The team joined the West Midlands League and began playing competitive matches against some of the most well known and respected ladies teams in the Midlands area, achieving promotion to the Premier Division after winning the Division One South title in 2004-05. The team capped their first season in the Premier Division with a fifth placed finish but the second season in the West Midlands top flight brought difficulties and the team folded.
Under the former Management trio of Ian Ray, Mark Allington and Tony Cameron, who led United into the Premier Division, the club will be looking to blend youth with experience for its County League campaign and it is expected that some of the club's present crop of girls playing in the under-16 team will step up a grade for next season. United are also expected to see the return of some former players who have joined other clubs or who have taken a break away from football since their demise.
The team will be looking for friendly fixtures with County League teams from around late March to early April in preparation for the forthcoming 2007-08 season. The team is now training for next season's assault on the County League and welcome new and former players back to Banbury Road. If you are aged 16 plus and interested in playing please contact Ray11@btopenworld.com or telephone (07721) 034265.
