Southampton Saints are keen to recruit new players as they build on a positive start to the season.
Three seasons ago, Southampton Saints regained their Ladies team from Southampton Football Club. Everyone at this Charter Standard Club knew that it would be a difficult, but ultimately worthwhile, task to re-establish the Senior Section of the Club. This proved to be the case as the Ladies suffered relegation in two consecutive seasons. However, the Club remained focused and persevered, believing that it is essential that all junior team players have a pathway to senior football to aim and aspire to.
This season there is an Under-11 team in the Mid-Solent League, two Under-12 teams in the Winchester League and Under-14 and Under-15 teams in the Hampshire County Women's League. Traditionally Southampton Saints has always had a thriving and successful Junior Section and this is the case again this season.
This is proving to be the key to their turn in fortunes with the Senior teams this season so far. From their trials, they recruited a healthy combination of players retained from the previous season and some very talented young players from the Junior Section, many of whom have played for the club since they were seven years old.
The First Team are doing well in the Southern Region League Premier Division and are through to the next round of the League Cup and are also in the Quarter Final of the Hampshire FA Challenge Cup. The Reserves currently sit at the top of Division One with an extremely healthy goal difference. Unfortunately, due to the fact that they cannot compete in the same Cup competitions as the first team and several postponements, they are having to endure a very quiet non-competitive spell.
Most recently, the club has formed an official link with their "sister" club in the United States. Saints USA is a very successful club in California, which is managed by ex-Southampton resident Timothy Mumford and Assistant Coach Mick Indge. They play in the Orange County Women's Soccer League (OCWSL), which is possibly the premier adult women's soccer set-up in California and one of the best organizations of its kind in the nation.
Together with the continued success and enthusiasm of their junior teams, Southampton Saints is enjoying a very positive period. Everyone at the club is working hard to build on this success in order for the ladies teams to regain their places in the higher leagues where they believe they should be.
There is also have a new comprehensive website where you can find all this information plus much more at www.pitchero.com/clubs/southamptonsaintslgfc/
